Bishop's agent says elbow injury

We've been lost ot speculation since last night when Ben Bishop let the game against Toronto with an injury.  The replays showed what looked like a shoulder injury while many professionals and fans alike mused about a collarbone injury. A player's agent is supposed to be in-the-know with regard to what's going on with his client, and that's why this tweet from Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Bay Times is relevant: Ben Bishop's agent says his client has an elbow injury. Agent said he has no other details. — Damian Cristodero (@LightningTimes) April 10, 2014 It's not like the team will...

Ben Bishop injury: Lightning goaltender leaves game after awkward fall

The Lightning may have been dealt a serious blow heading into their first round matchup against Montreal. The Lightning haven't exactly been tearing it up of late, and their underlying numbers show that they've been trending downward for awhile now. Outside of Steven Stamkos, no player is as important to the success of the Tampa Bay Lightning as Ben Bishop, and he looks to have seriously injured himself in Tuesday night's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Bishop was forced to leave the game after awkwardly jumping for the puck and landing on his left leg. .embed-container {position:...

The following GIFs are from @MyRegularFace: We have no indication at this point of the seriousness or exact nature of this injury. But we will update as necessary. Should Bishop be out for an extended period of time, we can expect...

Flames Rook Bishop: Defeat Bolts 4-1

The Flames came down to Tampa Bay to try and defuse the playoff bound Lightning, if only for one night. First Period There wasn't really that much worth noting through the first eight minutes of the game, as the two teams combined for four shots on goal and only two hits. That's when Karri Ramo stopped a pretty nifty deke by JT Brown. Just past the 10 minute mark, Calgary drew first blood when Tampa Bay goaltender Ben Bishop tried to clear the puck, but instead passed it directly to Mike Cammalleri for his 25th goal of the season, unassisted. Just 15 seconds later, Christopher Breen...
