Bishop has stopped 52 of 58 shots sent his way through the first three games of the series, which includes two Quality Starts and one Really Bad Starts. However the Lightning trail the series 2-1, and are in as near a "must win" as it gets before racking up three losses.

Ben Bishop allowed two goals on 20 shots Tuesday night as the Lightning suffered a 3-0 defeat at the hands of the Red Wings.

Bishop has struggled thus far in the postseason, having allowed six goals on 58 shots against in three contests. The difference between his performance and that of Detroit's Petr Mrazek is the primary reason the Lightning find themselves trailing in the series entering Game 4.

Ben Bishop will be back in the Tampa goal Saturday afternoon against the Red Wings in Game 2 of their best-of-seven playoff series.

Ben Bishop was simply awful in the Lightning's 3-2 loss to Detroit in Game 1 on Thursday night, allowing three goals on 14 shots.

Bishop was starting his first playoff game in the NHL, and allowed a tipped shot past him in the first period, a Pavel Datyusk wrister from the slot in the second, then a nifty spin-o-rama move from Luke Glendening got by him in the third period for the game winner. Three goals on 14 shots, one of which was shorthanded, will not be good enough if the Bolts hope to advance.

Ben Bishop will be between the pipes for Thursday's series opening game against Detroit.

This will be Bishop's first taste of playoff action. The 28-year-old led the Lightning to the playoffs one year ago, but he was injured at the end of the regular season and was never able to return for the post-season. Bishop finished the regular season with an incredible 40-13-5 record with a 2.32 goals-against-average and a .916 save percentage. He has only played in one playoff game (AHL) in his professional career.

The Lightning will take on the Red Wings, beginning Thursday.
Apr 11 - 10:55 PM

Look for Ben Bishop to get the call Satuday night against Boston.

The Bruins need to win if they want to have any chance for a playoff spot and the Lightning need to win if they want to win the Atlantic Division. As a result, Tampa coach Jon Cooper will almost certainly start Bishop against Boston. Make sure you have him active.
Apr 11 - 10:46 AM

Ben Bishop allowed three goals on 24 shots, but it was enough to escape with a 4-3 overtime victory over New Jersey on Thursday night.

Bishop has not lost in regulation in his past four games, and owns a season record of 39-13-5 with a .915 save percentage and 2.33 goals against average. The Bolts will need him to win his 40th game of the season on Saturday to have any hope of finishing first in the Atlantic Division, but it will be a tough two points as Boston will be playing for a playoff spot.
Apr 10 - 1:06 AM

The Lightning have locked up a playoff spot but they can still win the Atlantic division.
