Video: Bishop Okay After Taking Stick to Eye in San Jose

Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Ben Bishop survived a scary encounter with the blade of Tomas Hertl's stick on Saturday at the Shark Tank during the third period of Tampa's 4-3 win.

Bishop took Hertl's inadvertent high-stick to the eye (through his mask, see video above) and was down on the ice for several minutes before leaving the game.

Reports from the Tampa locker room are that Bishop is okay despite having abrasions on the side of his eye and inside it.

According to Lightning beat reporter Erik Erlendsson, Biship will dress tonight for the Bolts game at Staples Center in L.A.
