News: Bishop made 16 saves on 19 shots in a win over the Rangers on Wednesday. Impact: Not a great day for Bishop, but he still got the win, his fourth in five starts. He already has 13 wins on the season, and while his numbers aren't as good as last year, his .915 save percentage and 2.33 GAA are still plenty acceptable.(RotoWire, )

News: Bishop will start in goal Wednesday against the Rangers, the Tampa Tribune reports. Impact: Bishop has allowed just eight goals in his last four contests -- three of which have resulted in victories for the Bolts. He has a .923 save percentage so far in November, and a 2.30 GAA on the season.(RotoWire, )

News: Bishop is expected to start Wednesday's game against the Rangers, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Impact: The Lightning held an optional morning skate, so it might not be confirmed until pregame warmups that Bishop is Wednesday's starter. Even so, it's hard to imagine coach Jon Cooper bypassing his top netminder in a non-back-to-back scenario, especially with Bishop owning a 6-0 record and 0.93 GAA for his career against the Rangers.(RotoWire, )

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, )
Thu. Nov 20, 2014
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, )
Thu. Nov 20, 2014
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, )
Mon. Nov 17, 2014
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, )
Sat. Nov 15, 2014
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, )
Thu. Nov 13, 2014
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)
