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

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
