Los Angeles Kings get G Ben Bishop from Tampa Bay Lightning

Los Angeles Kings get G Ben Bishop from Tampa Bay Lightning

A day after getting goaltender Jonathan Quick back from a groin injury that had sidelined him all season, the Kings picked up another top goalie Sunday when they acquired veteran Ben Bishop from the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Goalie Peter Budaj and young defenseman Erik Cernak are heading to the Lightning as part of the trade, along with a 2017 seventh-round draft pick and a 2017 conditional draft pick. The Kings now have 64 points and are in ninth-place in the Western Conference. The 30-year-old Hanzal can become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

The Los Angeles Kings have decided to make their post-season push with two dependable veteran goalies sharing the crease. "I think it's not that complicated".

The Kings now boast two of the three 2015-16 Vezina Trophy finalists after Sunday's most unusual trade with the Lightning. Last year, he also posted a career-high.926 save percentage, just to see that number creep down to.911 this season.

Ben Bishop makes a blocker save for Tampa Bay against Edmonton in a game last week. Budaj returned to a backup role Saturday while Quick backstopped the Kings to a 4-1 victory over Anaheim.

Budaj proved a capable substitute during Quick's 59-game absence, going 27-20-3 with a 2.12 goals-against average and a.917 save percentage. The Kings next game will come on Monday on the road against the Calgary Flames with either Quick or Bishop in net. Andrei Vasilevskiy will take over starting goalie duties for the Lightning.

Lombardi was the general manager of the USA team last season at the World Cup of Hockey, and the Missouri-raised Bishop was on his roster.
