He ended the night with a save percentage of .962.

It was the first win he's picked up for the Kings since coming over in a deadline deal from Tampa Bay. He's had three quality starts since coming to Hollywood though. His numbers over the season have been fairly decent with a 2.54 goals-against-average and a .910 save percentage in 37 appearances.

Ben Bishop will probably get his fifth game with the Kings on Thursday against the Jets.

Ben Bishop made 14 saves on 16 shots in the Kings' 5-2 loss to Calgary on Sunday.

Bishop came in to relieve Jonathan Quick in the first period after he allowed two early goals. Bishop fared better, but ultimately allowed the game winner and thus his record falls to 16-14-5 this season with a 2.56 goals against average and .910 save percentage.
Mar 20 - 12:52 AM

Ben Bishop blocked 30 of 32 shots in regulation and turned aside another nine in a shootout as the Kings lost 3-2 to the Coyotes.

Bishop is now 0-1-2 with the Kings, which is all the more disappointing because he ended his time with the Lightning one a five-game winning streak. His overtime losses came with save percentages of .933 against the Flames on February 28 and .938 against the Coyotes, so it is difficult to blame him for the lack of success.
Mar 15 - 2:05 AM

Ben Bishop will be between the pipes in Tuesday's game against the Arizona Coyotes.

This will be Bishop's first start in four games. He has a 16-13-4 record with a 2.58 goals-against-average and a .910 save percentage.
Mar 14 - 10:21 PM

Ben Bishop still lacks a win with the Los Angeles Kings, who fell 4-3 to the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday.

Bishop gave up four goals on 21 SOG, last giving up a goal a little more than midway through the second period. The Kings really buttoned things up in attempting to come back, only allowing Vancouver four third-period SOG. It's a reminder that the team around Bishop could still push him to a higher level if he can start to build up some confidence.
Mar 5 - 2:06 AM

Ben Bishop will likely get the start on Saturday against Vancouver.

He was the first goaltender off the ice at the morning skate. Bishop made 28 saves in a 2-1 overtime loss to Calgary in his Los Angeles debut this past Tuesday. That defeat snapped his five-game winning streak, which he established when he was still with the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Mar 4 - 2:24 PM

Ben Bishop will be between the pipes for tonight's game against Calgary.

It'll be his first start as a member of the Los Angeles Kings. Bishop comes into tonight's game with a 16-12-3 record with a 2.55 goals-against-average and a .911 save percentage.

GM Dean Lombardi says the trade for Ben Bishop was not an insurance policy but the opportunity to have two number one goalies.

Lombardi can say that but if Jonathan Quick is healthy, he should get most of the starts. The Kings will not want to overload Quick since he missed 59 games with a groin injury but make no mistake, he is number one while he remains healthy. "I think it’s not that complicated. Obviously we have Jon coming back," Lombardi said. "However, I think there’s a number of concerns. Number one, you’re never sure how well a guy who’s been out this long – is he going to have his ‘A-Game,’ so to speak, or not? These types of injuries which are fairly serious, the history of comebacks can go either way. That’s the first thing. On the other hand, we all know that Jon’s a tremendous athlete. He’s one of the top goaltenders in the game, and most importantly he’s one of the game’s top competitors. So you certainly don’t worry about Jon that once he passes the mental part that ‘I’m capable of doing athletically what I have in the past’ that he’s going to be able to give his all."

Ben Bishop has been traded to the Los Angeles Kings.

He has been shipped to Los Angeles along with a fifth-round pick in the 2017 draft in exchange for goaltender Peter Budaj, prospect defenseman Erik Cernak, a seventh-round selection in 2017 and a conditional pick in 2017. Bishop is eligible to be an unrestricted free agent in July. He will provide the Kings with some insurance if Quick's groin acts up again.

The flu bug appears to have bitten Ben Bishop, as he was absent from Sunday's practice with the team.

It's unclear if the veteran netminder will start Monday's match versus the Senators, but if he doesn't this is why. Consider him day-to-day for the time being.
