DAL@MIN: Bishop leaves game with injury

Ben Bishop leaves the game after the 1st period and is questionable to return against the Wild due to an injury

  • 00:19 •

Ben Bishop was injured in the second period of the Dallas Stars' 4-1 win against the Minnesota Wild at Xcel Energy Center on Thursday, ending his attempt at a fourth straight shutout.

Bishop left at 6:33 after a goal by Joel L'Esperance gave Dallas a 3-0 lead. The Stars said Bishop is day to day with a lower-body injury. He was replaced by Anton Khudobin.

Dallas recalled goalie Landon Bow from Texas of the American Hockey League on Friday, and he's expected to dress as the backup to Khudobin when the Stars host the Vegas Golden Knights (8 p.m.ET; NHLN, SN360, SNE, SNO, FS-SW, ATTSN-RM, NHL.TV).

Bishop has not allowed a goal 230:53, the longest streak in Dallas/Minnesota North Stars history.

Bishop was trying to become the fifth goalie to get a shutout in four consecutive games he played since 1929-30, when the NHL implemented forward passes in all three zones. The others were Brian Boucher of the Phoenix Coyotes (five games, Dec. 31, 2003-Jan. 9, 2004), Roy Worters of the New York Americans (Nov. 12-20, 1930), Charlie Gardiner of the Chicago Blackhawks (Jan. 8-15, 1931) and Bill Durnan of the Montreal Canadiens (Feb. 26-March 6, 1949).
