Two bits of good news for the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Second, goalie Ben Bishop (sprained wrist) is healthy enough to back up Anders Lindback tonight in Columbus. Bishop will likely start tomorrow in Manhattan versus the Rangers. (AHL call-up Cedrick Desjardins is reportedly headed back to Syracuse this afternoon.)
Tampa Bay is coming off a 6-3 win Saturday in Philadelphia. Jon Cooper’s team is an impressive 15-9-4 since star sniper Steven Stamkos broke his right tibia on Nov. 11.
