Bishop day-to-day; Lightning call up Gudlevskis
Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop is day-to-day with a lower-body injury, and the team has recalled goaltender Kristers Gudlevskis from the Florida Everblades of the ECHL.

Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop is day-to-day with a lower-body injury, and the team has recalled goaltender Kristers Gudlevskis from the Florida Everblades of the ECHL.

Bishop started Thursday against the Florida Panthers and improved to 3-0-0 with a 1.93 goals-against average and .928 save percentage. He played the entire game in a 7-2 win.

Gudlevskis, 21, was a fifth-round pick (No. 124) by the Lightning in the 2013 NHL Draft. He was attending training camp for the Everblades after playing last season in Latvia's top junior league for HC Riga. Gudlevskis recorded a 2.09 GAA and .927 save percentage in 56 games.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
