TAMPA -- Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Ben Bishop did not take the net for the third period against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday because of an upper-body injury.

Bishop allowed one goal and made 21 saves during the first 40 minutes. He was replaced by Cedrick Desjardins.

Bishop missed four games in early January with an injured wrist.

Lightning forward Valtteri Filppula left the game in the third period with a lower-body injury.

Quote of the Day

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
