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'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
