Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop has been a busy man these days, rehabbing his surgically-repaired right wrist at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. Bishop, 27, underwent the procedure six weeks ago, on April 29 in Cleveland, repairing a torn ligament suffered in January. After two weeks in a cast, he's been working on getting his range of motion back, with resistance training and stretching. "It's going well," Bishop said. "Slowly but surely, we're getting movement back in it. It's getting stronger each day." Bishop's left elbow, disclocated in early April (forcing him to miss the first-round series against the Canadiens), is about "90-percent." Bishop said there's still some swelling there and it'll take a little bit of time to get back to normal. "We're back to almost 100-percent on the elbow," he said. But Bishop appears confident he'll be ready to start training camp in September, planning to start skating again in August.
