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

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.

— Chicago Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz on signing Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane to contract extensions
