Ben Bishop Suffers LBI, Top Prospect Andrei Vasilevskiy Gets The Call

Last night the unthinkable happened, Ben Bishop (5 SV, 1 GA, .800%) left the game late in the first period with what the Bolts say is a lower body injury.

RECAP: Game 30. Time is a flat circle

You can see why the Lightning are so good. What a fun team to watch. Minus Steven Stamkos who was completely invisible. Evgeni Malkin would get murdered if he didn’t show up for a big game by hockey pundits. You have to say the same for the Lightning golden boy. Yikes. Stamkos was no where to found in this one. The Lightning do have a hell of a team, minus a reliable goaltender...

GIF: Ben Bishop headbutts Rick Nash below the belt

The Tampa Bay Lightning weren’t too pleased with Rick Nash after his cross check nearly took off Ondrej Palat’s head. That anger was felt around the rink and was seen when goaltender Ben Bishop froze a puck and then gave Nash a headbutt below the belt. That’s a new one. Can’t say we’ve ever seen a goalie headbutt a guy in the groin, but alas, that’s what makes hockey...
