In response to BadHabitude's comment:
True, that is absolutely NOT facedown, he is clearly reaching far to his left to attempt to poke check the puck. If he were 'face down' how could he know where to poke check? all he would be seeing is ice and not the puck on Zibenajad's stick.
And just use common sense, think of whenever you dove for anything in any sport - you focus on the object you are diving for.
This is a simple case. Goalie dove for a puck and got a minor dent by his own defenseman.
It's funny, this was the one thing stevegm and I agreed on. From page 3...

Anyway, regarding the point about his "head barely moving". At the point of impact, Bishop is sprawled, face down.
No it isn't fletch. We agree he got dinged in the punkin too. We agree it probably hurt, and we agree we have no idea how much. We agree we don't know any details, and we agree the trainers, "may' have held him out of the rest of the game. Mainly, I only disagreed with your assertion he was trying to draw a penalty. That did, and still seems incredibly illogical. The other point I disagreed with, is the notion that his head should have moved violently at the point of impact. The rationale being his face was down, and already in close proximity to where it would stop after any violent impact anyway. Since those two points were critical in creating the hall of fame embellishment theory, it struck me as being very flimsy logic from which to base an alternative belief.
That's not me telling the world what to think, or what to believe in. That's just me sayin, don't be too quick to jump on someone elses bandwagon.
