Bishop, Stamkos join Lightning for practice

Tampa Bay trails Pittsburgh 2-1 in Eastern Conference Final

by @NHL /

Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Ben Bishop and center Steven Stamkos each practiced Thursday.

Bishop was the first player on the ice for practice after skating on his own earlier. He has been out since sustaining a lower-body injury in the first period of Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Pittsburgh Penguins. 

Stamkos has not played since March 31. He had surgery to remove a blood clot from near his right collarbone on April 4. 

The Lightning trail the best-of-7 series 2-1. Game 4 is at Amalie Arena in Tampa on Friday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports).
