Ben Bishop gave up three goals on 22 shots in the Lightning’s 3-2 loss to the Islanders on Saturday night.

Bishop has a 2.04 GAA and .926 SV%, and the loss snapped a streak of five games in which he helped Tampa Bay earn at least a point. Nov 28 - 9:40 PM

Look for Ben Bishop to start in goal against the Islanders Saturday night.

He got Friday night off as Andrei Vasilevskiy started and lost to the Capitals 4-2. Bishop is coming off a very fine 37-save, 2-1 shootout win over the Kings on Wednesday and has not allowed more than one goal in four of his last five starts. His current goals against average is 1.99 and his save percentage is .929. Pretty impressive numbers.

Lightning goalie Ben Bishop turned away 37 of the 38 shots he faced from the Los Angeles Kings Wednesday night en route to a 2-1 shootout victory in Tampa Bay.

Bishop has been on fire. He has allowed one or fewer goals in five of his past six games. His goals-against average is now under 2.00 -- at 1.99 -- and his save percentage is .929. His record on the season is 9-7-2. If you can somehow grab him for your fantasy team, now would be the time.

Bishop has allowed more than two goals once in his last nine contests. The 6-7 netminder has a 2.05 goals-against average and .925 save percentage. The record (8-7-2) is not as good as you’d expect, but the upside is there for much better.

Ben Bishop will face the Ducks on Saturday night, and it's his 29th birthday.

Bishop has been solid over his last five starts, allowing just nine goals with four coming in a single game. For the season, he sports a 7-7-2 record with a .920 save percentage and a 2.18 GAA. Considering the Ducks' inability to score so far, Bishop should be an excellent play tonight.
Nov 21 - 6:18 PM

Ben Bishop stopped 20 of the 21 shots he faced in Thursday night's win over the Rangers.

Bishop and the Bolts halted the Rangers' nine-game winning streak with a stingy effort. Bishop is now back to .500 with a 7-7-2 record, .920 save percentage and 2.18 goals against average.

Ben Bishop will get the start in goal Saturday night when the Lightning face off against their Florida rivals, the Panthers.

Bishop is coming off a win (finally) on Thursday in which he stopped 30 Calgary shots and allowed only one goal. Despite his recent losing streak (five losses), Bishop has been outstanding has as he has not allowed more than two goals in a game in almost a month. Make sure he is active Saturday.
Nov 14 - 10:59 AM

Ben Bishop snapped a five-game losing streak by allowing just one goal on 31 shots in Thursday night's 3-1 victory over Calgary.

It was an odd slump, as Bishop allowed just one or two goals in each of those five losses. Nonetheless, the 28-year-old is back on track with a 6-7-1 record, .924 save percentage and 2.15 goals against average.
Nov 12 - 11:57 PM

Ben Bishop will be the Lightning's starter on Thursday.

Bishop has lost five straight games, but it's hard to pin that on him when he's surrendered just eight goals over that span. We'll see if he gets more support tonight against the Calgary Flames.

Coach Jon Cooper said that Ben Bishop remains the team's number one goaltender.

"Bish is our guy, we know that," Cooper said. "But I've said this many times before, that kid has played a lot of hockey. He's done a hell of a job for us, look at how well he's playing right now. It's phenomenal that he hasn't won in his last (five) starts, and he's got as sparkling statistics as he's ever had in his NHL career. Feeling for the kid." Andrei Vasilevskiy will be between the pipes against Buffalo on Tuesday night, but it seems more like a move to give Bishop some rest and get Vasilevskiy back into a game rhythm than a brewing goalie controversy.
Nov 10 - 12:48 PM

Ben Bishop gave up one goal on 26 shots but it was not enough as the Tampa Bay Lightning dropped a 1-0 decision to the Wild.

Bishop saw his record fall to 5-7-1 this season after he posted 40 wins in 2014-15. Bishop has a 2.24 GAA and a .920 save percentage. It was his fifth loss in a row but he cannot be blamed for this losing streak as he has given up only eight goals in the five tilts.
Nov 7 - 10:49 PM

Ben Bishop is the likely starter for Tampa against Minnesota Saturday night.

Andrei Vasilevskiy has looked good in the two starts he has made since recovering from blood clot surgery, but this is still Bishop's team. The veteran netminder has lost four games in a row but has only allowed seven goals in those games. We would start Bishop as sooner or later the Bolts will support him with some offence.
