Lightning vs. Blackhawks, Stanley Cup Final 2015: Time, TV schedule and live streaming for Game 4

Tampa Bay can push Chicago to the brink with a win in Game 4.

Coming off an important win in Game 3, the Tampa Bay Lightning must be concerned about their situation in net.

Already up 2-1 in the Stanley Cup Final, the Lightning will try to push the Chicago Blackhawks to the brink with a win in Game 4 on Wednesday in Chicago. Whether they'll do it with their starting goaltender is another matter entirely.

Ben Bishop played hurt in Game 3, despite stopping 36 of 38 shots in the win. Coach Jon Cooper was insistent during and after the game about keeping him in the net, especially since Bishop essentially demanded the start during pregame. But if the Lightning do decide to switch things up, they'll turn to rookie goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy. The young Russian has played in three games during the playoffs, sporting a poor .895 save percentage and 4.45 goals against average.

Chicago will likely counter again with goalie Corey Crawford, who is showing signs of leakiness as the Cup Final progresses. After a solid start in Game 1, Crawford has given up seven goals in the last two games.
