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

I'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
