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.
