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

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
