MONTREAL -- Tampa Bay Lightning backup goalie Anders Lindback is not likely to play before the Olympic break due to a lower-body injury and starting goalie Ben Bishop remains questionable to start the game Saturday against the Montreal Canadiens (1 p.m. ET, CBC, RDS), coach Jon Cooper said.
Bishop was forced to leave the game Thursday against the Ottawa Senators when he was struck in the head by the skate of teammate Nikita Kucherov. Bishop took part in the Lightning's practice at Bell Centre on Friday and said if he wakes up feeling well, he'll be able to play.
"It could have been a lot worse," Bishop said. "He kind of skimmed me. If he hit me direct on I don't know what would have happened.
"Hopefully I wake up in the morning and I feel OK. We'll have to wait and see what happens."
