Bishop starts for Lightning in Game 5 of Stanley Cup final against Blackhawks @NHLdotcom

TAMPA, Fla. - Injured Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop said he doesn't know if he'll play in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup final tonight.

Bishop skated and noted "progress is being made" with his undisclosed injury.

Coach Jon Cooper said he hoped to have a decision to make between Bishop and Andrei Vasilevskiy.

Bishop took part in the morning skate prior to Game 4 on Wednesday as well, but didn't start.

Vasilevskiy stopped 17 of the 19 shots he faced against the Chicago Blackhawks in his first Stanley Cup playoff start.
