Carle’s in for Lightning in Game 5, Bishop gets hit below the belt
He’s available, so he’s in: the Tampa Bay Lightning are getting Matt Carle back in the lineup against the New York Rangers for Game 5.
In other pregame news, Ben Bishop skated off the ice after taking a puck to his nether regions before warm-ups. Here’s video of that unfortunate break:

Bishop’s playing, so it sounds like this will just be an unpleasant way to head into Game 5.
