Ben Bishop gave up only one regulation goal, but was beaten in overtime to record a 2-1 loss to the Ducks Tuesday night.
The Lightning lost a man early in overtime as Tyler Johnson was sent to the sin bin for hooking. That allowed Ryan Kesler to win the resulting faceoff and feed Rickard Rakell, who riffled a shot past Bishop. It snapped a four-game winning streak for Bishop, but the goalie remains hot with a GAA of 2.00 or less in his last four games. Jan 18 - 1:41 AM
