Bishop, who was playing his first game in Ottawa since being traded to the Lightning last April, came way out of his net to play the puck two minutes into the first and ended up getting kicked in the head by teammate Nikita Kucherov. Bishop lay on the ice motionless, silencing the 19,757 on hand, before he was able to leave the ice on his own.

The Lightning also lost leading scorer Valterri Filpulla early in the second. Filpulla returned briefly, but then left the game with a lower body injury.

SABRES 3, COYOTES 2

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Zemgus Girgensons scored a short-handed goal in the third period and had an assist, and the road-weary Sabres knocked off the Coyotes.

The Sabres had plenty of energy in their third game in four nights, scoring the first goal and rallying from a 2-1 deficit in the third period. Tyler Ennis and Steve Ott scored, and Girgensons put Buffalo ahead with his goal early in the third.

Ryan Miller made some tough stops after giving up two quick goals in the second period, finishing with 38 saves in Buffalo’s second win in 10 games.

Phoenix followed one of its best games of the season with a shaky performance.

Antoine Vermette scored his fifth goal in three games to extend his point streak to six games, and David Moss scored his first goal in 17 games for the Coyotes.

FLAMES 4, SHARKS 1

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - Mark Giordano scored the winning goal and Karri Ramo made 27 saves as Calgary extended its winning streak to four games.

Lee Stempniak and rookie Sean Monahan also scored for the Flames, and Jiri Hudler added an empty-netter.

Eriah Hayes scored his first NHL goal for San Jose.

The Flames have their longest winning streak since reeling off five straight in March 2012, and are 4-0-0 on a five-game homestand.

The Sharks have lost three straight and scored only one goal in the skid.
