TAMPA -- Lightning goalie Ben Bishop turned 30 today and the Tampa Bay Lightning presented him with a birthday cake which celebrates his toughness.
Back on October 25, Bishop took a puck to the mask which knocked out his two front teeth. The moment was immortalized on the Tampa Bay Lightning Twitter feed.

As the 2015-2016 NHL All-Star goalie celebrate today, the Lightning kitchen staff whipped up a birthday topper that was unmatched and completely appropriate: a fondant recreation of the upper teeth with two gold choppers in the front.
Bishop posted a photo the cake on his Twitter and thanked the staff for coming up with an dea which brought tears to his Twitter emoji.
