Lightning G Ben Bishop leaves game vs. Maple Leafs due to upper-body injury

TAMPA, Fla. - Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Ben Bishop has been sidelined by an undisclosed upper-body injury.

Bishop left Tuesday night's game against Toronto with 14:17 left in the first period. He lunged to his left and landed on his side while attempting to glove the puck.

The Lightning said Bishop was out for the game.

Anders Lindback replaced Bishop, who is 37-14-7 this season for the playoff-bound Lightning.

Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
