GIF: Lightning goalie Ben Bishop leaves game vs. Leafs with upper-body injury
Tampa Bay goalie Ben Bishop left Tuesday's game with an apparent arm injury after falling to the ice trying to make a save about five minutes into the first period.
Bishop had to be helped off the ice and was replaced by Anders Lindback.
Official word on Ben Bishop is that he suffered an upper body injury and will not return to the game. #TBLightning
The goalie missed time earlier this season with a right wrist injury suffered in January. However, it appeared that Bishop came down hard on his left (catching) wrist after leaping to make a save.
Bishop has been one of the major reasons the Lightning have clinched a playoff spot this season, winning 34 games so far this year. He is in the top 10 among NHL goalies in save percentage (.924) and goals against average (2.23). He's also earned five shutouts this season.
UPDATE: 10:40 P.M.
Jon Cooper says Ben Bishop won't play Tampa's next game. After that? "There's no sense in speculating...We'll see how he is."
