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

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
