Lightning goalie Ben Bishop out for Game 1 against Canadiens
The Lightning will go with backup Anders Lindback, who had a record of 8-12-2 in the regular season, with a less-than-stellar save percentage of .891.
However, Lindback did win three games last week after Bishop was lost to the injury, helping Tampa Bay gain home-ice advantage in the series. The Lightning won three of four games against Montreal during the regular season.
Bishop, a Vezina Trophy contender as the NHL’s top goaltender, had a 37-14-7 record with a 2.37 goals-against average, a .924 save percentage and five shutouts this season.
