Ben Bishop (knee) was on the ice Wednesday morning.

It's a step forward, but Bishop isn't close to returning yet. The plan is to re-evaluate him next week. Given that the season is almost over and Dallas isn't likely to make the playoffs, it wouldn't be surprising if Bishop doesn't return before the 2018-19 campaign.

Ben Bishop allowed three goals on 25 shots in Friday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Ottawa Senators.

This was Bishop's first game back in the lineup since missing five games with a lower-body injury. The Stars went into the third period with a 1-0 lead, but they found themselves down 2-1 with under two minutes remaining. Thankfully for them, Tyler Pitlick tied the game late in regulation, but Sens forward Mike Hoffman scored the game-winner in overtime. Bishop now owns a 26-17-5 record with a 2.50 goals-against-average and a .916 save percentage this season.

"He worked really hard (Thursday) and came through it fine," said Hitchcock. "He felt good before he went on the ice this morning and we just wanted to be re-assured that he was going to be fine. We tested him in every situation (Thursday) and he was fine."
