Bishop Out For Game 1 [VIDEO]
Former UMaine goalie Ben Bishop has been listed as 'out of the lineup/upper body injury' for tonight's first NHL playoff game between Tampa Bay and Montreal. Bishop suffered an elbow injury in the last week of the season and did not play in the Lightning's final three games.
That means Andres Lindback will get the start against the Canadiens.
Bishop had a great year as Tampa Bay's #1 goalie, winning 37 games with a 2.23 GAA.
From 2005-2008 Bishop won 55 games as UMaine's goalie before turning pro after his junior year.
Another former Black Bear, Teddy Purcell, will be in the lineuup for TB. He had 12 goals and 30 assists for the Lightning this season.
The team will only call the Bishop injury an upper body injury and is not saying if/when Bishop could play again.
It is also unkown if the team endorses the new music video imploring the Lightning fans to get up and dance to "We Want The Cup"...
