Ben Bishop is still Tampa Bay's starting goaltender.

He has had a couple of lackluster performances in his past four outings, but he won't be losing the number one gig to Andrei Vasilevskiy yet. "To go back to me against Anaheim meant a lot to me," Bishop said of coach Jon Cooper's decision. "Coop and I have been doing this together now, and it's nice to know that he has my back and trusts me to get a big win against a big team." Bishop also played well against San Jose on Sunday in his last start. Vasilevskiy is slated to be Tampa Bay's netminder of the future, but Bishop still has plenty to give.
Feb 18 - 11:33 AM

Ben Bishop made 33 saves in Sunday's 5-2 win in San Jose.

The Lightning hadn't won a game in San Jose since 2003. Tampa Bay gave Bishop plenty of goal-support tonight. East coast teams tend to struggle when they go out west, but Bishop and the Lightning got the job done. His record improves to an impressive 28-10-3 this season, but his 2.45 goals-against-average and .911 save percentage are mediocre at best.
Feb 15 - 10:42 PM

Look for Ben Bishop to start in goal Sunday against San Jose.

The Bolts want to start off their western road trip on a strong note and will almost certainly turn to Bishop who will be looking to rebound after a poor game Thursday against the Blues in which he allowed five goals on 34 shots and was pulled after two periods. Bear in mind, that Bishop's struggles as of late have more to do with a breakdown in the Tampa defense than with Bishop sliding.
Feb 14 - 11:54 AM

Ben Bishop made 29 saves on 34 shots on Thursday night and watched the third period on the bench in a 6-3 loss to St. Louis.

Down 5-2 going into the final frame, the Bolts yanked their starter and let Andrei Vasilevskiy finish off the game. Bishop falls to 27-10-3 with a 2.47 goals against average and .910 save percentage this season. He has an .854 save percentage and 4.30 goals against average in four games so far in February.
Feb 12 - 10:59 PM

Ben Bishop will get the start Thursday night against the team that drafted him 85th overall in 2005, the St. Louis Blues.

Bishop's excellent season continues as he tests his 27-9-3 record with 96 goals against through 43 games thus far. He's 6-3-1 over his last ten starts with 23 goals against, and six of those games saw two or fewer pucks beat him. For what it's worth, Bishop is 1-1-1 with seven goals against his former team.
Feb 12 - 5:47 PM

Ben Bishop stopped 25 of 28 shots in Sunday's 5-3 win over Anaheim.

Feb 8 - 8:28 PM

Ben Bishop's teammates said they left their goaltender out to dry in Saturday's loss to Los Angeles.

Bishop was pulled at the start of the second period after allowing three goals in the first. "It was just unorthodoxed for us some of the goals we gave up,’’ defenseman Mark Barberio said. "We left Bish hanging out to dry, and we picked it up in the second and third, but it was too late, they already had three. They are a well structured team, they know how to shut other teams down and that’s what they did. We didn’t come out strong enough in the first and that’s how they won it.’’
