Stars’ Ben Bishop to start Game 7 despite injury in Game 6

Watch as Ben Bishop is left hurt after taking a slapshot off his collarbone. The whistle is never blown as the St. Louis Blues score again thanks to Jaden Schwartz.

Dallas Stars fans can rest easy.

Ben Bishop will be between the pipes for the team’s Game 7 against the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday, despite leaving Sunday’s Game 6 with an injury.

Bishop was injured mid-way through the third period of Sunday’s game when a shot from Blues defenceman Colton Parayko hit him in the shoulder. Bishop fell to the ice and didn’t get up, but the Blues gathered the rebound and scored a controversial goal to go up 3-1 in the game.

After surrendering a fourth goal 30 seconds later, Bishop was lifted from the game and replaced by Anton Khudobin.

Bishop, 32, is a finalist for the Vezina Trophy this season after posting a 27-15-2 record with a 1.98 goals-against average and .934 save percentage. He’s kept his strong play up in the playoffs, maintaining a 2.32 goals-against average and .929 save percentage in 12 post-season games.
