Bishop exits with injury after shutout streak sets Stars record

Ben Bishop's big night ended prematurely.

The Dallas Stars goaltender was forced to leave Thursday's contest against the Minnesota Wild in the second period with what the Stars called a lower-body injury. He did not return.

After the game, Stars head coach Jim Montgomery said Bishop is day-to-day and the club will know more Friday, according to The Athletic's Sean Shapiro.

Before departing, the veteran netminder set a franchise record with his ongoing shutout streak, which now stands at 230 minutes, 53 seconds. He passed Ed Belfour, who established the previous team-best mark of 219:26 in 2000.

Bishop stopped all seven shots he faced Thursday night. He hasn't allowed a goal since March 2 against the St. Louis Blues, posting shutouts in each of his previous three games.
