News: Bishop stopped 24 shots in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Flyers. Impact: The score is closer than the game was -- the Flyers scored their third goal in the game's final minute. He's picking up wins, but his save percentage has been sub-par in his last four starts. In fact, he's only been above .889 once in those four games. He's still a decent roll, but this bears watching.(RotoWire, )

News: Bishop will be in the crease Thursday against the Flyers, NHL.com's Bryan Burns reports. Impact: Bishop wasn't especially sharp Tuesday in allowing three goals on 25 shots, but the Tampa offense overwhelmed Arizona to give the goalie his fifth win. The Flyers have been hit hard with injuries on their blue line and could be similarly vulnerable to Tampa's offensive firepower, giving Bishop a good chance at moving his record to 6-1-1.(RotoWire, )

News: Bishop made 22 saves in Tampa Bay's 7-3 win over Arizona on Tuesday night. Impact: It's his fifth win, as Bishop's well on his way to delivering numbers just like last year's breakout season. And that is fantasy gold.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Oct 28, 2014
News: Bishop will start Tuesday's game against the Coyotes, Erik Erlendsson of The Tampa Tribune reports. Impact: Bishop will return to the starter's crease after giving way to Evgeni Nabokov in Saturday's game -- a contest that saw Bishop still play over 42 minutes in place of an ineffective Nabokov. Bishop has yet to give up more than three goals in a game this season, and will be looking to pick up his fifth win of the season Tuesday night.(RotoWire, )
Oct 26, 2014
News: Bishop entered Saturday's game against the Wild in relief, stopping 11 of 14 shots in his 42:45 of ice time. Impact: Bishop had the unenviable task of coming into the game cold due to Evgeni Nabokov being chased from the contest late in the first period after allowing four goals on eight shots. Since he had expected to rest the entire night, Bishop can be forgiven for not playing with much zest Saturday.(RotoWire, )

News: Bishop stopped 40 shots in Friday's 4-2 win over Winnipeg. Impact: It was a season-high save mark for Bishop, who is now 4-1-1 in six starts.(STATS, 11:19am)
Fri. Oct 24, 2014
News: Bishop made 40 saves on 42 shots in Friday's win over the Jets. Impact: A phenomenal performance from Bishop, who has now won three of his last four games. After getting a rest Tuesday, it's likely Big Ben gets right back in the crease Saturday vs. the Wild. Bishop is a workhorse in goal, and if his first six games are any indication, the 6-foot-7 goaltender is in for another remarkable season in 2014-15.(RotoWire, )

News: Bishop will be in the crease Friday against the Jets, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Impact: Bishop received the night off Tuesday in Calgary, so there's a good chance he'll start both ends of the Bolts' weekend back-to-back in Winnipeg and Minnesota. He'll enter Friday's game against the Jets with an impressive 3-1-1 record, 1.97 GAA and .921 save percentage, numbers comparable to those that he posted in his breakout 2013-14 campaign.(RotoWire, )

News: Bishop lost for the first time this season Monday, making 20 of 23 saves as Tampa dropped a 3-2 decision to the Oilers. Impact: Big Ben fell victim to a couple of unfortunate goals in this one, as the Oilers' Taylor Hall converted a second-period penalty shot before Ryan Nugent-Hopkins blew the game-winner past him in the third following a ghastly defensive-zone giveaway by Ondrej Palat. Bishop will probably take a rest in favor of backup Evgeni Nabokov when the Bolts play less than 24 hours later Tuesday in Calgary, but look for the 2013-14 Vezina Trophy finalist to bounce back this weekend as Tampa's western road trip continues.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Oct 20, 2014
News: Bishop will start in net Monday night against the Oilers, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports. Impact: Bishop is 3-0-1 in his first four starts this season, and will look to stay hot Monday against a struggling Oilers squad.(RotoWire, )
Sun. Oct 19, 2014
News: Bishop made 30 saves as the Tampa Bay Lightning beat Vancouver 4-2 on Saturday night and handed the Canucks their first loss of the season. Impact: Bishop is off to a strong start, going 3-0-1 with a 1.71 goals-against average in four games.(STATS, 2:46pm)
Oct 19, 2014
News: Bishop stopped 30 of the 32 shots he faced in Saturday's win over Vancouver. Impact: Bishop is now 3-0-1 this season with a .933 save percentage and 1.71 GAA. You can't ask for much more from this fantasy stud, who is well on his way to another excellent season. With a dynamic team in front of him, Bishop should finish the season as a top-five fantasy goalie.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Oct 18, 2014
News: Bishop will start Saturday against Vancouver, according to Eric Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune. Bishop was the first goalie off the ice at practice Saturday. Impact: He's an auto-roll when he's in the net. Get him in there.(RotoWire, )
Sun. Oct 12, 2014
News: Bishop made 32 saves Saturday. Impact: Start Bishop on Monday vs. the Habs. Bishop is 5-1-2 with a 1.30 goals-against average in eight starts versus Montreal, going 3-0-1 with a 0.94 GAA in four last season.(STATS, 2:06pm)
