Kings acquire goalie Ben Bishop

Kings acquire goalie Ben Bishop

The Kings, who also get a fifth-rounder from the Lightning, are three points out of the playoffs. Was Bishop's time up in Tampa Bay after this season anyways These are just a few of the questions that surround this intriguing move.

The Tampa Bay Lightning have traded goaltender Ben Bishop to the Los Angeles Kings.

Tampa Bay will retain 20 percent of Bishop's salary, according to the Kings' official team site. Andrei Vasilevskiy will take over starting goalie duties for the Lightning. The Kings now have 64 points - three back of the St. Louis Blues for the final Wild Card spot in the Western Conference.

Budaj, 34, became the Kings No. 1 goalie with Quick out, his seven shut-outs tying the league high.

Budaj is hands-down having the best season of his career posting a save percentage of.917 and a goals-against-average of 2.12 in 53 games this season. He made 32 saves in a 4-1 win against the Anaheim Ducks.




Monday will mark the third meeting of the season between the Kings and Wild, and the home team will look significantly different as well.

Ben Bishop's pending unrestricted free agency meant he'd likely finish the season in a different zip code.

"Somebody like Helene (Elliott of the Los Angeles Times) recognizes that Jonathan Quick is an emotional leader". We're not playing, what do you guys play? The Kings' 2.44 goals per-game rank 24th in the National Hockey League - their 2.43 goals allowed per-game rank fifth - and there was a belief that a scoring forward would make more sense at the deadline for the Los Angeles.

"The one good thing about this is Johnny and him were together at the World Cup so the familiarity with each other", Lombardi said.
