Another key player for the Tampa Bay Lightning has suffered an injury.
Goalie Ben Bishop left Friday night’s Eastern Conference finals Game 1 between the Lightning and Pittsburgh Penguins on a stretcher after appearing to suffer a nasty-looking leg injury during the first period.
The Vezina Trophy finalist joins a long list of injured stars for the Lightning, who already are without Steven Stamkos and Anton Straulman, although both hope to return during this series.
Bishop had nine saves before he suffered the injury, and he was replaced by backup goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy, who led Tampa Bay to a 3-1 win to open the best-of-seven series.
