Lightning’s Bishop Practicing in Pads

The Tampa Bay Lightning goalie that has been nursing an upper body injury, did not play in Wednesday’s playoff game against the Montreal Canadiens. But today, Ben Bishop is in full pads for practice on the ice.

Bay News 9 and Brighthouse Sports Networks reporter Ryan Bass tweeted a photo of Bishop during today’s morning skate. Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports he skated in full pads an hour before the team skated.
