Bishop not on ice for Lightning practice, status for Game 5 unclear

BRANDON, Fla. — Injured Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop is not on the ice for practice.

Bishop’s status for Game 5 of the Stanley Cup final against the Chicago Blackhawks Saturday is unclear.


Andrei Vasilevskiy started Game 4 on Wednesday night and will go again if Bishop can’t.

Coach Jon Cooper said Bishop would play again in this series but didn’t know which game.

The Lightning are calling Bishop day-to-day with an undisclosed injury.
