The Tampa Bay Lightning have been undermined by subpar goaltending all season and made a move with the Ottawa Senators to address that need. Nike Free Schweiz . Numbers Game examines the deal for Ben Bishop. The Lightning Get: G Ben Bishop. Bishop, 26, has performed well (11-8-2, 2.47 GAA, .917 SV%) since arriving in Ottawa last season, which makes him attractive enough to a Lightning team that needs goaltending. Right now, Lightning G Anders Lindback is out with a high ankle sprain, so veteran backup Mathieu Garon can return to the backup role while Bishop starts for the rest of the season. Though Bishop comes with a modest $650,000 cap hit this season (www.capgeek.com
), he will be a restricted free agent at seasons end. If he finishes the year strong and perhaps helps the Lightning challenge for a playoff spot, hell be due for a sizeable raise. Going forward, Bishop can compete with Lindback for the starters role and, if he plays well now, hell have the lead because Lindback struggled when given his first opportunity as the starter for the Lightning. Tampa Bay could afford to move Conacher because they have an abundance of quality forward prospects. Alex Killorn, Tyler Johnson, Richard Panik and Ondrej Palat have all played for Tampa Bay this year while Brett Connolly and J.T. Brown are quality players in the American Hockey League. The Senators Get: LW Cory Conacher and a fourth-round pick. Conacher is a 23-year-old rookie who has been a remarkable story: an undrafted free agent out of Canisius College, hardly a collegiate hockey power, who ranks second among all rookies with 24 points (9 G, 15 A) in 35 games. Undersized, at 5-foot-8, Conacher had to battle to get noticed and earn a spot in the league, so it was a rapid ascent to find himself playing alongside Steven Stamkos early in the season and his production was superb, with 18 points in 19 games. Its tailed off since, with two goals and six points in 16 games, and Conachers ice time has dipped (12:48 per game in March). In Ottawa, Conacher jumps into a group of young Senators forwards that he can grow with going forward. Conachers goal and point totals would be enough to put him at the top of the Senators stat sheet right now. There are factors involvedd, like injuries to Jason Spezza and Erik Karlsson in Ottawa, and time with Steven Stamkos and Martin St. Louis in Tampa Bay. Expecting Conacher to be a focal point of the Senators offence isnt fair, but he can be a contributing part of their top six forwards. As it stands right now, he could easily slide in alongside Kyle Turris and Daniel Alfredsson on Ottawas number one line. Conachers entry-level deal, which comes with a $925,000 cap hit, expires after next season, at which point he will be a restricted free agent. The Senators could afford to let Bishop go because they are very deep in net, with Craig Anderson expected to return from injury this week and promising rookie Robin Lehner performing at an exceptionally high level this season. Ultimately, its a case where two teams dealt from positions of strength in order to address areas of weakness. Nike Free 5.0+ Laufschuhe Blau .

INDIANAPOLIS -- Startled awake by an earsplitting fireworks blast at 6 a.m., then annoyed by an early morning sound check session by the band that was playing the prerace show, Jimmie Johnsons day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway didnt exactly get off to a winning start. It ended just fine, though -- with Johnson making plenty of noise of his own. Johnson stamped another exclamation point on his racing resume Sunday, a dominant drive that ended with his fourth career Brickyard 400 victory. Afterward, Johnson was able to laugh about how annoyed he was by the aerial bomb blast that signalled to fans that the tracks gates were open -- so annoyed, in fact, that he complained about it with a post on his Twitter account. "I thought the motorhome next to me blew up," Johnson said. "I was looking for a fire extinguisher to put out the fire. I guess getting up earlier than I wanted to let me prepare for the day and get ready." Johnson said he got over it quickly, and that he respects that the big boom is part of the tracks tradition. And hed better respect Indy tradition, because hes now a big part of it. With the win, Johnson joined Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jeff Gordon as the only NASCAR drivers to win four times at the historic 2.5-mile track, which has hosted stock car racing since 1994. The victory also puts Johnson among some top names in the tracks record books. Only three drivers have won four Indianapolis 500s: A.J. Foyt, Rick Mears and Al Unser Sr. Formula One ace Michael Schumacher won the U.S. Grand Prix five times on Indys road course configuration. "Im able to join racing legends, my heroes and people I looked up to my entire life," Johnson said. "To join them was a huge, huge honour." Johnson took it all in after the race, taking a victory lap in a pace car with his wife, his daughter and his crew guys all piled on board. "You can actually soak in the moment, and look around and realize that youre at the Brickyard -- and won -- was really special," Johnson said. And while his daughter, Genevieve, enjoyed playing with a microphone during Johnsons post race news conference, they couldnt convince her to join in as they completed the tradition of kneeling to kiss the yard of bricks at the start/finish line. "She wasnt into it," Johnson joked. Johnson also won the Brickyard in 2006, 2008 and 2009. Nike Free 6.0 Laufschuhe Rosa Blau Weiß. "Theyre that good, and they deserve it," Gordon said. Kyle Busch finished second, followed by Greg Biffle, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Gordon. Pole sitter Denny Hamlin was sixth. Nobody had a car capable of challenging Johnson, who led 99 of 160 laps. "It didnt really matter if you were in front of him or not, he was going to pass you in about four or five laps anyway," Biffle said. "His car was just really, really good." Team owner Rick Hendrick said the win was a testament to the combined talents of Johnson and crew chief Chad Knaus. "I think the equipment is so equal today, but youve got to look at the talent Jimmie has and the talent Chad has and the pit crew and everything else, the feedback, the communications," Hendrick said. "Ive never seen a guy that could drive a car as out of control and make it look in control as Jimmie can." And as the No. 48 team celebrated a victory, another Hendrick driver solidified his surprising status as a Sprint Cup championship front-runner. With his fourth-place run Sunday, Earnhardt Jr. took over the points lead -- 14 points ahead of Matt Kenseth, whose day ended early in a crash with Joey Logano. "Weve persevered all year, and weve done good work all year," Earnhardt said. "I think it is a bit of a confidence booster, something Im proud of because weve worked hard all year and weve got something to show for it." Earnhardt took the points lead at the expense of Kenseth, whose car was banged-up and smouldering after he tangled with Logano. "It is crazy there at the end," Kenseth said. "You could see the wreck happening and I was just hoping I wasnt going to be in it." It also was a rough day for Carl Edwards, whose engine began losing power only a handful of laps into the race. In his first race with new crew chief Chad Norris, Edwards qualified second but began dropping in the field after an apparent engine malfunction. Edwards finished 29th, left Indianapolis 12th in the points and is in danger of missing NASCARs season-ending Chase. "We have to take chances," Edwards said. "We have to go race. We can do that, we can race like that. It will actually be a big relief in a way because there is no other choice. We just go race for wins. I wouldnt bet against us. We can do it." ' ' '
