Tough times in Tampa’s goal with Lindback out, Bishop questionable

5 Comments

Tampa Bay will want to erase all memories of Thursday’s 5-3 loss in Ottawa, and not just because of the scoreline.

The Bolts lost both of their of goalies against the Sens — Ben Bishop, who left less than two minutes in after colliding with Nikita Kucherov and Anders Lindback, who was hurt while getting tangled up with Cory Conacher.

Here’s the latest on the pair, from the Tampa Bay Times:

The Bolts next play on Saturday in a matinee (1 p.m. ET) against Montreal. After that, the club has three games remaining until the Olympic break (against Minnesota, Toronto and Detroit) before getting some much-needed rest between Feb. 9-25.

If Tampa Bay needs to call up a goalie it’ll likely be Cedrick Desjardins, who appeared in three games for the club last season.

Update: Lindback’s injury could be serious. According to the Tampa Tribune, he felt a “pop” in his ankle, the same one that gave him issues last season and saw him miss 14 games.
