Senators beat Lightning 5-3
OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) - Ben Bishop’s return game in Ottawa didn’t last long.
Bishop, who has been outstanding for Tampa this season, hopes to be back in action soon.
“I had a little bit of a headache, but it’s gotten better as the game went on,” said Bishop. “Hopefully I’ll wake up (Friday) and feel better and be able to practice.”
The goalie lay on the ice motionless, silencing the 19,757 on hand before he was able to leave the game on his own.
“It was very disappointing,” said Bishop. “It’s almost sad. I was happy to be back and excited to play and then that happens right away.”
On the play, the Senators’ Marc Methot scored into a wide-open net picking up his fifth of the season for a career high.
The win allowed the Senators, with 58 points, to move into a tie with the Columbus Blue Jackets for the eighth and final playoff spot, but the Blue Jackets hold the tie-breaker with more wins (27).
“You have to take care of the games you have and we did that (Thursday),” said Ryan. “If you don’t, you’re going to be on the outside looking in and that’s not where we want to be.”
“It was a tale of two different teams,” Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said. “The one thing that concerned me was we didn’t play desperate. There’s one thing about competing really hard, but we just didn’t seem to have that desperation. Whether that was because of the way the game started, but at some point you have to turn the page.”
Ottawa made it 2-0 with 25 seconds remaining in the period as Jason Spezza took a stretch pass from Milan Michalek, froze the Lightning defense, and found Karlsson all alone in front of a wide-open net.
