Rumor has it he had the sh!ts.  I'm personally not buying it, thought it was definitely weird.  I was at the game and definitely had several drinks in me from about 4pm onward, but I actually noticed right away before anyone else around me that in goal was #88 and not #30 -- I looked around and was like "Whoa, wtf?  Where is Bishop?".  I was in the 3rd level so I didn't see any indication of an injury either, but on NHL Network's highlights the next day they were showing that it did look like he was favoring his left leg or knee, though I suppose it's plausible it was also just him leaning over with cramps or something.

 

I really don't know what to think.  Bizarre.

 

BUT...if Vasilevski does have to play for him, even though he's raw with not a lot of experience, he is the #1 goalie prospect in the world, so they have that going for them...

Pretty sure that rumor was started as a joke by Loungo. 

I think at this point we wont know for sure what happened until the series is over, Tampa has nothing to gain by revealing anything at this point and it might throw the blackhawks off their game a bit.

Very possible, but believe it or not, as the game was unfolding and right after Bishop went to the bench, I text my day "Must be hurt", and his response was "or has the sh!ts" lol.

Imagine how dominant Chicago would be if their goalie wasn't a glorified AHLer?

 

Crawford is not great, but he's not terrible. I find it hard to blame him alone the last two games.

 

The Lightning are rolling 3 strong and fast forward lines and the Hawks' D isnt matching up well enough right now. Oduya has been bad the whole series and Seabrook was bad tonight.

It's looking like Tampa got the better of the Rangers in the MSL deal.   Callahan is playing like a Conn Smyth candidate in the Finals, plus they get the Rags first round pick this year.

 

And I believe they got the Rags' 1st last season too as part of that deal.  In the end, it could look like an Oceans 12 sort of heist.
