What if: Hedman and Bishop didn’t collide

There are certain moments in a game when you can feel the energy change. While sometimes they’re good moments - a lead-off walk in extra innings in a tie game - most of the time they’re bad moments. Instances where you think, or sometimes verbalize, the phrase “Oh my god” even if you’re a nonbeliever. For Tampa Bay Lightning fans, a perfect example of one of those moments was in Game Five of the 2015 Stanley Cup Finals against the Chicago Blackhawks.

You know the moment, six minutes into an important Game 5 with the series tied at two games a piece.
