Looks like a skate from his teammate Kucherov hit him in the head area.
Ben Bishop left tonight's game against Edmonton with a right wrist/hand injury, reports are he is headed for an x-ray.

TAMPA BAY – The Tampa Bay Lightning have signed goaltender Ben Bishop to a two-year contract extension today, vice president and general manager Steve Yzerman announced.
Bishop, 6-foot-7, 214 pounds, has played in six games with the Lightning after being acquired from the Ottawa Senators at the April 3 trade deadline. He has posted a 2-3-0 record with a .916 save percentage and a 3.21 goals-against average. Bishop made his Bolts debut on April 4 at Carolina, stopping all 45 shots he faced for a shutout. He was the second goalie in franchise history to post a shutout in his Lightning debut (Dwayne Roloson, January 4, 2011) and tied the franchise record for most saves in a shutout (Daren Puppa, November 27, 1995). He has played in a total of 19 games this season with Tampa Bay and Ottawa, recording a 10-8-0 record with a .920 save percentage, 2.68 goals-against average and two shutouts.
from Chris Stevenson of the Ottawa Sun,
Is is possible a goaltender can be too tall? At what point does a big guy just not have the agility to be effective? Ben Bishop of the Ottawa Senators is the tallest goaltender to play in the NHL at 6-foot-7. Talking to scouts, other goaltenders and goaltending coaches, there was concern about the size of a 5-hole on a big goaltender and the fact is, it just takes longer for a taller guy to collapse to the ice and close that 5-hole. Bishop said that’s something he has worked on and improved. Senators coach Paul MacLean doesn’t think a goaltender can be too big. “I look at (Bishop) and say, ‘Where’s the net?’ That’s not a bad thing.”

As per @SunGarrioch, the Blues have indeed traded Ben Bishop to Ottawa
note: I would have pointed to Garrioch, but for some reason he has blocked me.

Bishop must play at least 30 minutes in 17 games, or he will be unrestricted. Even if he doesn’t re-sign, worthy move for Bryan Murray.

The compensation for Bishop will be a draft pick, as high as a second-round pick.
Before trading G Ben Bishop to OTT for a 2013 2nd rd pick, STL signed him to a one-year, one-way contract.
That means the 30 minutes in 17 games is tossed out the door.

Correction: Bishop’s new one-year, one-way deal done with OTT, not St. Louis.
