Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender and Vezina Trophy candidate Ben Bishop had to leave Tuesday night's game in the first period after landing awkwardly on a save.

With the playoffs just a week away it was about the last thing the Lightning wanted to see, their goaltender struggling on the ice. After he skied to grab the puck in the air, he came down on his side and possibly suffered a shoulder injury.

Here's a look via @bubbaprog:

When he got up, Bishop went right to the dressing room.

That sound you heard was the entire Tampa Bay area shouting "NOOOOooooooo!" If Bishop is out for any length of time and it bleeds into the postseason, the Lightning will be in a world of hurt. He has been fantastic this season and is a big reason why they are where they are. Facing the Montreal Canadiens in a seven-game series without him would not be ideal.

Bishop has started 62 games this season and has a .924 save percentage to go with a 2.23 goals against average.
