Cedrick Desjardins has been informed by the Lightning that he'll either start or back up Ben Bishop Saturday night.

Bishop didn't play in the third period against Toronto on Thursday because of an upper-body injury, but he hasn't been ruled out for Saturday's home match against Detroit. It may be better for the Bolts if they give Bishop the night off to rest, so that he can get back to 100 percent over the Olympic break. So, we'll say that Desjardins should be considered the probable starter.

Tampa Bay netminder Cedrick Desjardins allowed three goals on 24 shots in a 3-2 loss to the Jets on Sunday.

With Anders Lindback sidelined due to an ankle injury, Desjardins got the nod over Mathieu Garon in the team's first game after relieving coach Guy Boucher of his duties. Look for Garon to be between the pipes in the team's next outing.

Cedrick Desjardins has been called up by the Lightning.

With Anders Lindback out indefinitely with an ankle injury, he'll join Tampa Bay and work as Mathieu Garon's backup. Desjardins has posted a 5-2-1 record with a 1.71 goals-against average and .933 save percentage with the AHL's Syracuse Crunch since being acquired from Montreal.

Tampa Bay Lightning demote Cedrick Desjardins to AHL Syracuse.

Desjardins was recalled when goalie Mathieu Garon was injured. He started one game, making 25 saves in a 4-3 loss to the Canadiens on Saturday night. We imagine this means Garon is ready to return to action as Anders Lindback's backup.

Cedrick Desjardins made 25 saves in Tampa Bay's 4-3 loss to the Canadiens on Saturday night.

It was Desjardins' first start of the season ... and it was going really well, until the last 20 minutes. The Lightning are finding every way to lose games right now. Not even a 3-1 advantage entering the third period was enough. Desjardins was 15-for-16 in the first two periods, then gave up three on 13 shots in the third. Tampa Bay has one win in its last eight games.

Cedrick Desjardins will get the start against Montreal Saturday night.

With Mathieu Garon injured and Anders Lindback's inconsistent play, Lightning coach Guy Boucher may be playing a hunch that the New Brunswick native, who probably was a Canadiens' fan growing up, will rise to the occasion. Adjust your goaltending rotation accordingly.

Tampa Bay Lightning recall Cedrick Desjardins from AHL Syracuse.

Mathieu Garon left Monday's game with a lower-body injury and it's unclear how long he'll be sidelined. The Lightning acquired Desjardins in a minor-league trade with Montreal on Feb. 14. In six starts for Syracuse, Desjardins is 4-2-0 with a 1.85 GAA and .928 save percentage. He'll back up Anders Lindback for as long as Garon is out and carries no fantasy value.
