Bolts' Bishop Pitches 26-Save Shutout In Game 5

News: Ben Bishop stopped all 26 shots he faced in Sunday's Game 5 win over the Rangers.
Analysis: A fantastic outing from Ben Bishop, who had to leave warmups early after taking a shot in a very uncomfortable place. It was a great bounce-back performance from the 28-year-old, who had been burned for 10 goals in his last two games. Bishop's now 11-7-0 in this postseason and is one win away from advancing onto the Stanley Cup Final. Now that he's back on his game, look for Big Ben to have another giant outing in Game 6 Tuesday as the Bolts look to close out the series.

Lightning's Bishop Starting Game 5

News: Ben Bishop led the Lightning onto the ice for warmups before Sunday's Game 5 against the Rangers, ESPN Boston's Joe McDonald reports.
Analysis: Lightning coach Jon Cooper said it would be "asinine" to bench Ben Bishop, who has allowed 10 goals over the last two games. Another weak outing could perhaps change Cooper's mind, but it would still be surprising if the Lightning turned away from the goaltender who carried them all season.

Bolts' Coach: Benching Bishop Would Be

News: Lightning coach Jon Cooper said it would be "asinine" to bench Ben Bishop for Sunday's Game 5 against the Rangers, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Giving up five goals in Friday's loss qualified as a disappointment for Ben Bishop, but there was little chance the Lightning would turn to the untested Andrei Vasilevskiy with the series knotted at 2-2. This should be all the confirmation anyone needs that Bishop will be between the pipes Sunday.

Bishop Tagged For Five As Bolts Drop Game 4

News: Ben Bishop gave up five goals on just 24 shots Friday, leaving him with a series-tying Game-4 loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: A rough one for Ben Bishop, who saw his teammates fire 39 shots on opposing netminder Henrik Lundqvist, but this time they only got through the Rangers' goalie once. For all that Lundqvist had been criticized for giving up six goals in consecutive games, Bishop has been no stud himself in this series, as he's now allowed five goals twice in a row. He'll try to right the ship in Game 5 at Madison Square Garden on Sunday night.

Bolts' Bishop Starts Game 4

News: Ben Bishop will start Game 4 on Friday against the Rangers, Matt Baker of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Unsurprisingly, Ben Bishop will be between the pipes as the Lightning look to extend their 2-1 series lead on Friday. He'll look for a better start than his previous outing, in which he allowed five goals on 28 shots, though he did come away with an overtime win.

Bishop Shaky, But Still Gets Win In OT For Bolts

News: Ben Bishop battled the puck all Wednesday night, but ended up the winner in a 6-5 OT victory over the Rangers. He made 23 saves.
Analysis: He wasn't at his finest, but he made two excellent saves early in the overtime period to keep his team alive. A win is a win and he now leads the postseason with 10.

Bolts' Bishop To Get The Start For Game 3

News: Ben Bishop will get the start for Game 3 on Wednesday against New York, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Ben Bishop will remain in net Wednesday as the Lightning look to take a 2-1 series lead over the Rangers. He is sporting a .940 save percentage through two games in this series.

Ben Bishop

Bolts' Bishop Stops 35 In Win

News: Ben Bishop turned aside 35 of 37 shots in Monday's Game 2 win over the Rangers.
Analysis: It was another solid performance for Ben Bishop, but this time his mates gave him plenty of offensive support as the Bolts secured the 6-2 win to tie up the Eastern Conference Finals. He appears to be heating up at the right time as he's allowed just seven goals over the past four games since being replaced midway through the Game 4 loss to the Canadiens in the last round, and will look to stay sharp as the Lightning try to grab the series lead in Wednesday's Game 3.

Ben Bishop

Bolts' Bishop Gets Nod For Game 2

News: Ben Bishop is in the net for Monday's Game 2 against the Rangers, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Ben Bishop was steady in the series opener with saves on 28 of his 30 chances, but opposing netminder Henrik Lundqvist was just a little better as the Rangers eeked out a 2-1 win. Both goalies have been outstanding this postseason, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see the Eastern Conference Finals turn into a low-scoring affair, even though both teams' offenses feature plenty of firepower.

Bolts' Bishop: 28 Saves In Tight Loss

News: Ben Bishop made 28 saves Saturday in a 2-1, Game 1 loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: He made some great saves, but the winner came off a broken play late in the third after he coughed up the puck to Derick Brassard. Still, it was a solid performance and he robbed a few guys, including JT Miller who was standing on his doorstep with what seemed like a wide-open net. He'll be in there for Game 2 on Monday.

Bolts' Bishop Gets The Start For Game 1

News: Ben Bishop will get the start in goal Saturday against New York for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Ben Bishop is sporting a .931 save percentage through 13 starts this postseason and will remain in goal for Game 1 against the Rangers. He stopped 18 out of 19 shots in Tuesday's closeout win over Montreal.

Bishop, Lightning Close Out Habs

News: Ben Bishop stopped 18 of 19 shots Tuesday to finish off the Canadiens in six games and proceed to the Eastern Conference Final.
Analysis: He wasn't heavily tested in this one, as the Habs rolled over a bit easier than you'd like to see, but this was yet another strong playoff stat line for Ben Bishop, who's posted a .917 save mark or better in seven of his last eight contests. Now he and the Lightning await the victor of the Rangers and Capitals, who will play Game 7 of their series Wednesday.

Bolts' Bishop Gets Nod Against The Habs

News: Ben Bishop will be in the crease for Tuesday's Game 6 against the Canadiens.
Analysis: Ben Bishop hasn't been able to close the door on the Canadiens the last two games, but those have represented just the second and third regulation losses off his career against Le Bleu-Blanc-Rouge. Over his 16 career appearances (including postseason), Bishop is an impressive 13-3-2 with a 1.88 GAA and .930 save percentage.

Bolts' Bishop: Only Perfect Shots Get By Him

News: Ben Bishop was beaten just twice Saturday, both on perfect shots, but took the 2-1 loss to the Canadiens. He made 27 saves.
Analysis: The first shot went off Big Ben's shoulder and under the crossbar; the second went off the crossbar and in. It was a nice rebound for the big man, who was yanked his last time out. The shots that beat him were indeed perfect shots; Game 6 is Tuesday.

Lightning Stay With Bishop For Game 4

News: Ben Bishop is in line to start Thursday's Game 4 against Montreal
Analysis: On a quick turnaround, Ben Bishop, who made 30 saves in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Canadiens, will look to help the Lightning complete a sweep of their second-round playoff series on Thursday. Such an outcome would earn the big netminder some well-earned rest, as he's a virtual lock to start every playoff game for the Lightning moving forward, in the absence of an injury.

Bishop, Bolts Can't Finish Sweep

News: Ben Bishop was chased from Thursday's Game 4 loss to Montreal after allowing three goals on 14 shots in just over 25 minutes of play.
Analysis: The Habs had their backs to the wall, and they played that way, overwhelming the Lightning to send the series back to Montreal. Ben Bishop had been red-hot of late, having won five straight with sparkling rate stats, so we'll cut him a break on this subpar outing against a desperate team. Backup Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 23 of 26 in relief.

Bolts' Bishop: 30 Saves In Game 3 Win

News: Ben Bishop made 30 saves in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Canadiens.
Analysis: It might have been his best game of the postseason. The Habs maintained consistent pressure throughout the game, but Big Ben kept them at bay. It was his fifth consecutive win, a span where he has allowed just six goals.

Lightning's Bishop Starts Game 3

News: Ben Bishop was the first goaltender off the ice at the Lightning's morning skate Wednesday and will start Game 3 of the team's series against Montreal, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Ben Bishop remains the Bolts' top goaltender, and is coming off a string of solid performances in net thus far in the postseason. He's bested Carey Price in the first two games of the series, and will look to do so again in Game 3 on Wednesday.

Bishop Stops 27 In Tampa Game 2 Win

News: Ben Bishop made 27 saves in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Canadiens.
Analysis: He was busy enough, but the Habs were stunningly undisciplined, spending far too many minutes in the penalty box. Their lines were a bit of patchwork quilt because of it, so they never really got in a groove agains Big Ben. The Bolts now return to Tampa Bay with a 2-0 series lead.

Ben Bishop

Lightning Stay With Bishop For Game 2

News: Ben Bishop is on track to start Sunday's game against Montreal.
Analysis: Ben Bishop, who turned away 43 of 44 shots in a double-overtime win over the Habs in Game 1 of the team's second-round series, will look to continue a roll in which he has won his last three playoff starts, while stopping 96-of-99 shots in the process.

Bolts' Bishop Makes 43 Saves In Game 1 Win

News: Ben Bishop was outstanding Friday, stopping 43 of 44 shots in a double-overtime Game 1 win over Montreal.
Analysis: Simply a phenomenal performance from Ben Bishop, who didn't let a weak third-period goal by Max Pacioretty get him off his game. That's back-to-back dominant outings for Big Ben, who stopped all 31 shots he faced in Wednesday's first-round Game 7 win over Detroit. Bishop is now 5-3-0 in this postseason with a .933 save percentage and 1.68 GAA. Now that he appears on top of his game, the Habs better watch out, as the 28-year-old is capable of stealing this series and propelling the Bolts to the third round.

Ben Bishop

Bolts' Bishop Will Start On Friday

News: Ben Bishop led his team onto the ice for pregame warmups, and will be in net in Friday's Game 1 against Montreal, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Ben Bishop will look to build on his excellent performance in Game 7 of Tampa Bay's first round series against Detroit. In that game he turned away all 31 shots he faced en route to his first career playoff shutout. The Lightning will continue to lean on Bishop heavily throughout their playoff run.

Bishop Posts First Playoff Shutout For Bolts' Win

News: Ben Bishop made 31 saves in a 2-0 win over Detroit in Game 7 of their opening-round series Wednesday night.
Analysis: Honestly, he wasn't really tested that much in the game despite the number of shots. It was his first career playoff shutout and he and the Bolts will now face the Canadiens in the next round.

Lightning Stay With Bishop For Game 7

News: Ben Bishop is slated to start Wednesday's Game 7 at home against the Red Wings, MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Both Ben Bishop and Detroit's Petr Mrazek will be making their first NHL Game 7 starts Wednesday, with Bishop looking to maintain the momentum he gained in Monday's 5-2 road win in Game 6, in which he stopped 22 of 24 shots. For the series, Bishop has a 2.18 GAA and .904 save percentage.

Bolts' Bishop Forces Game 7 With Win

News: Ben Bishop turned aside 22 of 24 shots in Monday's Game 6 win over the Red Wings.
Analysis: Ben Bishop has been inconsistent during this first round series, but he's been able to deliver the win in all three outings that he's posted a save percentage above .900. He hasn't been solely responsible for the losses though, as his mates have failed to muster much offense--having been shut out twice--but they exploded for a five-goal showing Monday. The Bolts have alternated wins and losses through the first six, so they'll be relying heavily on Bishop to turn in another solid performance in Wednesday's Game 7.
