Bolts' Bishop: 27 Saves In Win

News: Ben Bishop made 27 stops in Tampa Bay's 4-1 win over Vancouver on Tuesday night.
Analysis: He has won three straight games and allowed just five goals in those three. He's clearly back on track after a couple of queasy efforts a week ago. Be sure to take advantage.

Lightning's Bishop Appears Set For Tuesday Start

News: Ben Bishop appears on track to start Tuesday's game against the Canucks.
Analysis: Per the report, Evgeni Nabokov was the only Lightning goalie on the ice for Tuesday's optional morning skate, which is an indication that Ben Bishop is about to make his fourth straight start for the team.

Bolts' Bishop Checkmates Avs With 40-Save Win

News: Ben Bishop made 40 saves through overtime and was the better netminder in the shootout in a 3-2 victory over Colorado on Saturday night.
Analysis: He had definitely scuffled in recent games against Philly and Boston, but he now has two, two-goal wins over the Oil and the Avs. His overall ratios aren't as good as he delivered last season, but he's a solid activation nonetheless.

Bolts' Bishop To Start Saturday, Tuesday

News: Coach Jon Cooper said Friday that Ben Bishop will start both of the Bolts' final two games before the All-Star break, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Ben Bishop will kick things off with a match Saturday at home against the Avalanche, who will counter with Semyon Varlamov in goal. Though the Avs haven't played up to expectations this season, the roster still packs plenty of scoring punch that could potentially make life difficult for Bishop, who hasn't been playing his best of late. Though he was able to eek out a win over the Oilers his last time out, he was miserable in the previous two games, surrendering a total of seven goals in losses to the Flyers and Bruins.

Bolts' Bishop Stops 30, Gets Back On Winning Side

News: Ben Bishop made 30 saves in Thursday's 3-2 win over Edmonton.
Analysis: It was a nice bounceback for the big man who had allowed seven goals in his previous 96 minutes of action. He's fine.

Lightning Stick With Bishop

News: Ben Bishop is in line to start Thursday's game against the Oilers, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: The Lightning have lost two straight games, but Ben Bishop will have a chance to get the team back on the winning track Thursday against the Oilers, who currently have a league-low 29 points.

Bolts' Bishop: Up And Down In 2015

News: Ben Bishop made 30 saves in a 4-3 loss to the Bruins on Tuesday night.
Analysis: He has allowed 15 goals in 290 minutes of work in his last six games and seems to be either on or way off since the start of 2015. He's still a great goalie and it's hard to sit him. Just swallow hard.

Bolts' Bishop Receives Nod Tuesday

News: Ben Bishop led the Lightning on the ice for pregame warmups and will receive the start Tuesday versus the Bruins.
Analysis: The decision to go back to Ben Bishop isn't surprising after Evgeni Nabokov took the ice Monday against the Flyers and was an utter disaster. Bishop wasn't much better in relief (three goals allowed on 12 shots), but he's otherwise been one of the better fantasy options in goal this season. He'll face a tough challenge on the road against the Bruins, but his owners will probably be content to use him Tuesday.

Bolts' Bishop Struggles In Relief

News: Ben Bishop surrendered three goals on just 12 shots after entering in the second period in Monday's 7-3 loss to the Flyers.
Analysis: Ben Bishop had a rough outing in relief of the ineffective Evgeni Nabokov, but the game was already out of reach by the time he came in. The 28-year-old has been one of the more reliable options in net, so this was most likely just one bad performance on a night he didn't expect to play rather than anything to worry about.

Bolts' Bishop Stops 20 Shots In Win

News: Ben Bishop stopped 20 of 21 shots in Friday's win against the Sabres.
Analysis: Want to hear something weird? Ben Bishop has made exactly 20 saves in each of his last three games. The 28-year-old has now won five straight games, advancing his record to 21-6-2 on the season. With a .913 save percentage and 2.31 GAA, Bishop is one of the most reliable fantasy goaltenders around. Keep him rolling.

Bolts' Bishop Getting The Start Friday

News: Ben Bishop will be in the crease for Friday's game against the Sabres, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Ben Bishop has won his last two turns against superior opponents in the Senators and Canadiens, making him a favorable play in goal for a match against the porous Sabres, who have lost six in a row. We don't have to tell you to roll Bishop for this one.

Bishop Backstops Tampa Win With 20 Saves

News: Ben Bishop made 20 saves in Tampa Bay's 4-2 win over Montreal on Tuesday night.
Analysis: He was solid and lucky on the night -- a couple of posts were his best friends. The win was his 20th.

Bolts' Bishop Gets Nod Tuesday

News: Ben Bishop will be in the crease Tuesday against the Canadiens, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Ben Bishop improved his record to 19-6-2 on the campaign after defeating the Senators over the weekend, but he'll have his work cut out for him against the Canadiens and a red-hot Carey Price.

Bolts' Bishop Solid In Win

News: Ben Bishop made 20 saves on 22 shots in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Senators.
Analysis: Ben Bishop rebounded nicely after being pulled in his last start, picking up his 19th win of the year. He's now won three of his last four after undergoing a rough patch in early December, but the 28-year-old netminder appears to be back on track, so keep him rolling.

Bolts Roll With Bishop

News: Ben Bishop will start between the pipes against the Senators on Sunday, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Ben Bishop struggled in his last outing Friday and was pulled after allowing three goals on 10 shots against the Penguins. He will give it another go Sunday, facing a Canadiens lineup averaging 2.64 goals per game.

Rough Night For Bolts' Bishop

News: Ben Bishop (lower body) was chased from the net Friday after surrendering three goals on 10 Pittsburgh shots.
Analysis: It was a rough night for the big man -- he bobbled the initial shot on the first goal, leaving a tasty rebound that was drilled home. And there was confusion with the goal horn on the second after Evgeni Malkin rang the post. The horn went off even though it wasn't a goal and the Bolts let up, leaving Ben Bishop high and dry when the Penguins pounced on the puck. He should be fine going forward; this was just one of those nights.

Bolts' Bishop (Lower Body) Returns To Action

News: Ben Bishop (lower body) will be in the crease for Friday's game against the Penguins, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Ben Bishop was bypassed for Wednesday's start against the Sabres after tweaking the groin that had previously forced him to miss about a week of action earlier in December, but it was never considered a siginificant setback for the netminder. Groin injuries can remain a nuisance for goalies (see Varlamov, Semyon), however, so Bishop's situation bears watching over the next few weeks. While he remains healthy enough to play, he'll still be one of the steadier fantasy goalie options out there.

Bolts' Bishop: Tweaks Lower-Body Injury

News: Ben Bishop did not play Wednesday night against Buffalo because he re-aggravated a lower-body injury, according to the Associated Press. Earlier reports had indicated he would miss Wednesday's game for a routine rest day.
Analysis: He's day-to-day with the injury. We don't know when he suffered the tweak; fingers crossed he'll be back in action after New Year's. He had missed time prior to Christmas because of groin injury, but had played since (and won two).

Lightning's Bishop Not Expected To Play Wednesday

News: Ben Bishop will not start and is not expected to even suit up for Wednesday's game against the Sabres, Erik Erlendsson of The Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Ben Bishop feels good enough to play, but the Lightning will look to get him some rest heading into the new year. Andrei Vasilevskiy will start Wednesday, and Evgeni Nabokov is expected to serve as his backup. As it does not appear he is dealing with a health issue, it seems likely Bishop will be back in action for Tampa Bay's next game Friday in Pittsburgh.

Bolts' Bishop: Second Straight Win

News: Ben Bishop delivered 21 saves in a 3-2 win over the Maple Leafs on Monday night.
Analysis: That makes just three goals allowed in two straight wins since his return from injury. Make sure he's in your blue paint.

Bolts' Bishop Will Start Monday

News: Ben Bishop will get the call between the pipes Monday against the Maple Leafs, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Ben Bishop went through a tough stretch earlier in the month, but got back to his winning ways Saturday against the Hurricanes. He's 17-6-2 on the season now, and remains one of the league's top fantasy netminders.

Bolts' Bishop Picks Up Win In Return

News: Ben Bishop handled the Hurricanes easily Saturday, stopping 25 of 26 shots in a 2-1 win.
Analysis: The lowly 'Canes were the perfect team to get Ben Bishop back into the swing of things after sitting out the last four games with a groin ailment. The big man's 17 wins have him sitting seventh overall in the league while his .915 save percentage and 2.30 GAA are hovering right around his career marks of .919 and 2.38. As long as he remains healthy, last year's Vezina Trophy finalist makes for one of the best fantasy options between the pipes on a high-scoring, elite Lightning squad.

Bolts' Bishop Cleared To Start Saturday

News: Ben Bishop (groin) will make the start in goal Saturday against the Hurricanes, NHL.com's Bryan Burns reports.
Analysis: As expected, Ben Bishop made it through the Bolts' morning skate without incident and will receive clearance to see his first action since Dec. 15. He should be one of the top goalie options in daily formats Saturday at home against a Hurricanes squad that has tallied two or fewer goals in 11 of its last 12 contests.

Bolts' Bishop On Ice For Morning Skate

News: Ben Bishop (groin) was on the ice for Saturday's morning skate, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: The Lightning's decision to send Andrei Vasilevskiy back to AHL Syracuse during the Christmas break would seem to suggest that Ben Bishop is on his way toward a return to action Saturday against the Hurricanes. Expect coach Jon Cooper to provide confirmation on Bishop's availability to start shortly after the team completes its morning session.

Bolts' Bishop (Groin) Could Be Back Saturday

News: Ben Bishop (groin) could be ready to return to action for Saturday's home game against the Hurricanes, according to the Tampa Tribune. The Christmas break will give him four more days to rest and be ready for action.
Analysis: He said he "would have been available" for Tuesday's game, but understood the logic of getting the extra rest. Those of you in weekly formats are already locked in, but daily owners need to be ready to lock and load him into the lineup.
