Bishop Rebounds And Nets Win For Bolts

News: Ben Bishop lost his shutout bid at 5:49 of the third period of Saturday's win over Detroit. He finished with 23 saves in a 5-1 victory.
Analysis: It was a nice rebound for the big man and marked his first NHL playoff win. The series now shifts to Detroit.

Bolts' Bishop To Start Saturday

News: Ben Bishop will be in the crease for Game 2 of the Bolts' playoff series against the Red Wings on Saturday, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Ben Bishop will look to bounce back from a poor performance in Game 1 in which he allowed three goals on 14 shots. Expect the Bolts to lean heavily on Bishop throughout their playoff run.

Bishop, Lightning Fall In Game 1

News: Ben Bishop gave up three goals on just 14 shots in Thursday's Game 1 loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: This was a strange first playoff game, with the Lightning dominating the possession time and the shots -- 46 to 14 -- and yet getting outscored thanks to Ben Bishop's .786 save mark while Detroit netminder Petr Mrazek was dominating. Nonetheless, it seems unlikely that the Lightning will turn away from Bishop in Game 2.

Lightning Turn To Bishop

News: Ben Bishop is slated to start Thursday's game against the Red Wings, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Thursday's turn will mark Ben Bishop's first career NHL playoff start. He'll be squaring off against Detroit's Petr Mrazek. On the heels of Bishop's 40-win campaign, in which he recored a 2.32 GAA and .916 save percentage in 62 appearances, we'd be surprised if backup Andrei Vasilevskiy drew any playoff starts for the Lightning, in the absence of a Bishop injury.

Shootout Win For Bolts' Bishop, Third Straight Win

News: Ben Bishop won his third straight game and 39th of the season Saturday when he delivered a 36-save, 3-2 shootout win over the Bruins.
Analysis: He bricked up the twine tent in the shootout and his mates did the rest. He'll have a few days rest before the Bolts drop the puck on their first-round series against the Red Wings.

Bolts' Bishop In Line To Start Finale

News: Ben Bishop was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and is thus in line to start Saturday's game against the Bruins.
Analysis: With the Lightning still having a shot at capturing the Atlantic Division crown with a win and a Canadiens loss Saturday, coach Jon Cooper will stick with Ben Bishop in an effort to give his team its best chance to capture the victory. Despite winning three of his last four starts, Bishop figures to have his work cut out for him against a Bruins squad that is still fighting for a playoff spot, which could make the goalie a less-than-ideal option in daily formats.

Bolts' Bishop: 21 Saves Earn 39th Win Of Season

News: Ben Bishop made 21 saves in Tampa Bay's 4-3 overtime win over New Jersey on Thursday night.
Analysis: He has back-to-back wins, including one by shutout, and a career high 39 on the season. The Bolts play the Bruins on Saturday night. As much as he'd probably like a shot at a 40th win, Ben Bishop could be resting on the bench in preparation for the playoffs. No guarantees, of course, until we get official word. That might not come until Saturday morning. Have another guy ready just in case.

Bolts Roll With Bishop On Thursday

News: Ben Bishop will be in the crease for Thursday's game against the Devils, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Ben Bishop claimed his 38th win and fourth shutout of the season his last time out Saturday against the Panthers, stopping 33 shots. His performance has fluctuated wildly since the All-Star break, but with one of the league's more potent attacks backing him, he's been able to uphold a record 20 games above the .500 mark for the season. Keep him active against the offensively challenged Devils.

Ben Bishop

Bolts' Bishop: 33-Save Shutout Win

News: Ben Bishop delivered a 33-save shutout win over the Panthers on Saturday night.
Analysis: It's a career-best 38th win for the big man and just what the doctor ordered to recalibrate things. He's now 2-1 with just five goals against in his last three outings and looks good to go for the postseason.

Ben Bishop, G, TB Bolts' Bishop Garners Saturday Start

Ben Bishop

Bolts' Bishop Garners Saturday Start

News: Ben Bishop will be in the starter in net for Saturday's game against the Panthers, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Injuries have thinned the Bolts' depth recently, which may help explain why Ben Bishop has dropped three of his last four outings. The unusual losing skid has prevented Bishop from surpassing last season's total of 37 victories, but he'll have a chance to claim win No. 38 against a Panthers squad that is nearing elimination from the postseason. Although his recent results haven't been encouraging, Bishop makes for a viable daily option against a team that is averaging just 2.44 goals per game this season, good for 25th in the NHL.

Bolts' Bishop: 32 Saves In Loss

News: Ben Bishop made 32 saves Thursday in a 2-1 overtime loss to Ottawa.
Analysis: It was a strong performance; the winner went in through a sea of legs. Ben Bishop's just 1-2-1 in his last four, but he hasn't been bad -- at least, other than in his yanking against Nashville.

Bolts' Bishop To Start Thursday

News: Ben Bishop will be in the crease for Thursday's game against the Senators, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Ben Bishop has delivered weak efforts his last three times out, surrendering three goals and falling below the .900 mark in save percentage on each occasion. The Bolts still profile as one of the strongest teams in the Eastern Conference, but with the team extremely banged up on the blue line and missing another top-six forward in Tyler Johnson, Bishop might not be that rock-solid of a starting goalie option for the final few games of the regular season.

Bolts' Bishop Wins, Sets Up Two Goals

News: Ben Bishop made 25 saves in Monday's 5-3 win over Montreal. He also picked up two assists.
Analysis: He out-Priced Carey Price, who is known for his stickhandling. But Ben Bishop sprung his guys loose with beautiful passes and he had the assists by the 4:57 mark of the first. The win was his 37th, which equals his career mark from last season.

Lightning Turn To Bishop On Monday

News: Ben Bishop is slated to start Monday's game against Montreal, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Ben Bishop will look to bounce back Monday on the heels of back-to-back losses in which he has allowed six goals in 86:08 worth of ice time. Meanwhile, the Habs -- who lead the Eastern Conference with 102 points -- snapped a two-game slide with Saturday's 3-2 overtime win over the Panthers.

Nineteen Saves For Bolts' Bishop In Loss

News: Ben Bishop made 19 saves in Saturday's 4-0 loss to Detroit. He allowed three goals.
Analysis: The Wings and Petr Mrazek had the Bolts' number all game long and Ben Bishop's teammates had no response. Chalk it up to experience and keep him in the net. He'll be fine.

Bolts' Bishop Between Pipes Saturday

News: Ben Bishop will be in the net for Saturday's game against the Red Wings, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Ben Bishop will look to redeem himself after he was pulled early Thursday against the Predators upon allowing three goals on 11 shots. He could surrender the occasional start to Andrei Vasilevskiy before the season draws to a close, but Bishop is still clearly locked in as the Bolts' No. 1 netminder. With a win Saturday against the Red Wings, he'll tie the career-best total of 37 victories he notched a season ago.

Bolts' Bishop Yanked After Three Goals On 11 Shots

News: Ben Bishop allowed three goals on 11 shots before being pulled from Thursday's game against Nashville.
Analysis: He'd won five of his six previous starts, so although this is his second straight three-goal outing, it's best described as a hiccup. Fantasy owners need not worry about their Ben Bishop investment.

Lightning Turn To Bishop On Thursday

News: Ben Bishop is slated to start Thursday's game against the Predators, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: In the process, Ben Bishop -- who will look to help the Lightning extend their winning streak to five games on Thursday -- will also have a chance to tie the team's franchise record of 37 wins that he set last season.

Lightning Turn To Bishop On Sunday

News: Ben Bishop is slated to start Sunday's game against the Bruins, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Ben Bishop, who has won four of his last five games, while allowing just seven goals in that span, sports a 17-5-2 record since Jan. 4, per sportsnet.ca, but he's 0-3-2 lifetime against the Bruins.

Ben Bishop

Bolts' Bishop Stops 25 In Win

News: Ben Bishop turned aside 25 of 28 shots in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Bruins.
Analysis: Ben Bishop has now won three straight starts, and the Bolts have collected at least a point in 10 of his last 11. The 28-year-old has been terrific in that stretch as he's allowed just eight goals in his past five outings. Now sporting a 36-11-4 record, Bishop should be an automatic roll.

Bolts' Bishop Makes 30 Saves In Win

News: Ben Bishop turned away 30 of 31 shots in Friday's win over Detroit.
Analysis: Another terrific performance from Ben Bishop, who has been red-hot of late. Bishop has won four of his last five games and has allowed just seven goals in that span. The 28-year-old has suffered just one regulation loss in his past 10 appearances and has allowed two goals or less in nine of those games. With a 35-11-4 record on the season, Bishop should be an automatic roll.

Lightning's Bishop Starting Friday

News: Ben Bishop will start Friday's game against the Red Wings, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: No surprise here, as a win over Detroit would put the Lightning in fantastic position to grab one of the top two spots in the Atlantic Division. On the other hand, a Detroit regulation victory would leave the Red Wings just four points behind Tampa Bay, with a pair of games in hand. Ben Bishop has given up just four goals over his last three starts, despite going to overtime in two of those games.

Bishop Backstops Bolts To Win With 32 Saves

News: Ben Bishop made 32 saves in Monday's 4-2 in over the Canadiens.
Analysis: He has beaten Montreal twice -- once on the road and now at home -- in just six days. These two teams could meet for the Eastern Conference title, so Ben Bishop's work is good prep for that. Of course, it's also great for his fantasy owners -- that's win 34 on the season, just three shy of his career mark for wins (37).

Bolts' Bishop Starts Monday

News: Ben Bishop will start in net Monday against the Canadiens, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Ben Bishop finished Thursday's matchup against Boston with a shootout loss, but set aside 28 of the 30 shots he faced in the contest. Following a day off Saturday, he will get back in the crease Monday for a matchup with the Canadiens, a team sitting in the bottom third of the league in scoring.

Bolts' Bishop Solid, But Loses In Shootout

News: Ben Bishop stopped 28 of 30 shots Thursday against Boston, but took a shootout loss.
Analysis: The Lightning have lost 10 straight games to the Bruins, and Ben Bishop's seen a lot of that action. But the two teams meet twice more before the regular season concludes, so he'll have his chance at revenge. Despite the defeat, he's still got a sparkling 6-1-1 record over his last eight starts, allowing two or fewer goals in seven of those.
