NHL Stanley Cup Finals Game 3: The game of goalies

Lightning vs Blackhawks tonight at 1:00 GMT, and the big question is who is in net for Tampa Bay?

Ahead of Game 3 of the 2015 Stanley Cup Finals, all eyes are on the Tampa Bay Lightning to see which goalie will start tonight’s critical game. Ben Bishop, the Lightning’s main goalie left Game 2 for undisclosed reasons and rookie Andrei Vasilevskiy was good enough over 9:13 to give Tampa Bay their first win in the finals, evening the series at one game apiece.

Is it an Injury?

Tampa Bay’s Head Coach Jon Cooper was vague and didn’t field questions about the status of his goalie, giving fuel for the media fire. Cooper went on to say that both goalies are mokst likely available but he will know for sure before the puck drops tonight.

Chicago has played two excellent games in Florida and opened the finals with a good win on-the-road. They are an amazing team with great depth, but so are the Lightning. "We can't be concerned about their goalie," related Head Coach Joel Quenneville. "I think it's what we have to do to make it tough on their goalies, is what we talk about. We need more traffic. We need more shots. Whoever is in net, let's get to them."
