Injury or indigestion? Ben Bishop leaves ice in third period

New York Rangers v Tampa Bay Lightning - Game Six

New York Rangers v Tampa Bay Lightning - Game Six

Mike Carlson

Game 2 of Blackhawks - Lightning has had just about everything. There have been goals and lead changes. Big saves and wild end-to-end action. Now we can add intrigue and ... well, toilet humor.

Ben Bishop left twice during the third period of this crucial game, forcing Andrei Vasilevskiy into a high-pressure situation out of nowhere.

There’s always a chance that Bishop is hurt. Still, there are some, erm, backseat drivers who think that he might just have an upset stomach.

Here’s video of Bishop’s exit. Perhaps we’ll get more information after the game?

Unfortunately, many believe it’s a possible injury that would take more than Pepto Bismol to heal.

Take another look at the controversial 3-3 goal from Brent Seabrook to see if he may have gotten hurt there:

Vasilevskiy deserves serious credit, as he held strong and the Lightning made their 4-3 lead last, moving the series to a 1-1 tie and giving the young goalie his first NHL playoff win.
