Goaltender Ben Bishop is set for another spell on the sidelines in a blow to the Dallas Stars.

The Stars' $29.5million netminder Ben Bishop left Monday's game against the Ottawa Senators after sustaining a lower-body injury, Dallas announced. 

Bishop suffered an apparent knee injury after a collision in front of the net with team-mate Dan Hamuis.

He met with trainers but continued to play until the end of the first period.  

Bishop, who is 26-17-4 with a 2.51 GAA this season, stopped 12 shots before leaving after the first period. The Senators won 3-2 in overtime. 

Backup goalie Kari Lehtonen started the second period for Dallas and could be in line to start Tuesday against the Predators.
