News: Bishop made 30 saves in the Lightning's 2-1 win over the Wild on Saturday night. Impact: It was a solid bounce-back effort for the talented twinetender after a less than stellar effort against the Maple Leafs on Thursday night. It's his 12th win of the season. He's an automatic roll whenever he's between the pipes.(RotoWire, )

News: Bishop will be between the pipes Saturday against the Wild, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Impact: Bishop turned in one of his poorer showings of the season Thursday night against the Maple Leafs, surrendering four goals on just 20 shots. His rate stats haven't been as good as his won/loss record, but he remains one of the upper-tier goalie options in the fantasy game.(RotoWire, )

News: Bishop made 16 saves in Tampa's 5-2 loss to Toronto on Thursday night. He allowed four goals. Impact: He was fighting the puck most of the night and allowed a David Clarkson goal just 1:29 into the game. Bishop's entitled to an off night; he'll bounce back.(RotoWire, )

News: Bishop will be between the pipes Thursday against the Maple Leafs, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Impact: Bishop owns a 3-4-0 record and 2.99 GAA over nine career starts against the Maple Leafs, but he should still be a viable fantasy play given the extent to which the Bolts have steamrolled opponents this season. He's tied for third in the league with 11 wins on the campaign.(RotoWire, )

News: Bishop allowed just one goal on 16 shots to pick up his 11th win of the year Monday in a 5-1 rout of the Rangers. Impact: He wasn't heavily tested, but he did more than enough to outduel Rangers netminder Henrik Lundqvist. At 11-2-2, Bishop's now tied for the league lead in wins and fantasy owners should continue to start him whenever the Lightning do.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Nov 17, 2014
News: Bishop was the first goalie off the ice Monday morning, meaning he'll get the start against the Rangers, Michelle Gingras of the team's official site reports. Impact: After dropping a couple decisions in a row, Bishop got back to his winning ways Saturday with a 25 save win over the Islanders. Bishop hasn't allowed more than two goals in any of his last three starts, and will look to keep rolling against the Rangers.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Nov 15, 2014
News: Bishop improved to 10-2-2 with a 25-save win over the Islanders on Saturday night. Impact: He's among the league leaders in wins and is putting up solid ratios. Roll him with confidence.(RotoWire, )

News: Bishop will be in the crease Saturday against the Islanders, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports. Impact: Bishop has taken a regulation and overtime loss his last two times out, but a small slump by his offense is largely at fault, as Bishop saved 37 of 39 shots on both occasions. The last two games notwithstanding, the Tampa Bay attack still remains one of the league's most dangerous, as their 3.53 goals per game (second in NHL) would attest. Bishop should continue to ride the offense to victories most nights, though he could have his hands full with the Islanders, who enter play Saturday riding a five-game winning streak.(RotoWire, )

News: Bishop made 37 saves in a 2-1 loss to San Jose on Thursday night. Impact: He was outstanding, but so was Antti Niemi, who came out with the win. Still, Bishop's performance netted him the game's second star. He's good. Very, very good.(RotoWire, )

News: Bishop is on track to start Thursday's game against the Sharks, Erik Erlendsson of The Tampa Tribune reports. Impact: Bishop was the first goalie off the ice following the Lightning's morning skate, which puts him on track to be in the crease Thursday night. Bishop will take on a Sharks team that has lost three of four entering Thursday's contest.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Nov 12, 2014
News: Bishop finished with 37 saves in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Blackhawks on Tuesday. Impact: Bishop has been steady all season, going 9-1-2 with a 2.29 goals-against average in 12 starts.(STATS, 5:33pm)
Wed. Nov 12, 2014
News: Bishop stopped 37 of 39 shots Tuesday against the Blackhawks, but took the loss in the shootout. Impact: If you're gonna end a five-game winning streak, you may as well end it in style by posting a better save percentage than you did in any of those five victories. That's just what Bishop did on Tuesday. He hasn't yet rediscovered the form that made him one of the most dominant netminders in the league last year, but he's showing some signs.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Nov 11, 2014
News: Bishop will be in the net Tuesday against the Blackhawks, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports. Impact: The towering goalie hasn't quite been the source for elite ratios like he was last season, but with a 9-1-1 record over 12 outings, Bishop's fantasy owners likely aren't complaining. He should continue to ride the coattails of a hot offense to victory most nights, though Tuesday's test against the Blackhawks and a dialed-in Corey Crawford (1.75 GAA, .932 save percentage in nine outings) won't be easy.(RotoWire, )
