As of this writing, no one knows who will be in the net for Tampa tonight, though pictures have surfaced of Ben Bishop getting on the team plane to head to Chicago. Will Bishop start Game Three? Or will it be Andrei Vasilevskiy, who stopped all five shots he saw and got the win for the Bolts on Saturday? Maybe Joel Quenneville will sit Corey Crawford this evening and put in Scott Darling. You know, just for funsies.

While Bishop remained mum during the media availability this morning about whether he would start in net tonight, my bet is if he CAN start, he WILL start. #hottaek

The Lightning are rocking a 7-3 road record during the playoffs, while the Blackhawks have a strong 8-1 playoff record when playing at home.

Something's gotta give.
