News: Bishop lost for the first time this season, making 20 of 23 saves as Tampa dropped a 3-2 decision to the Oilers on Monday. 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 after 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 last year's Vezina Trophy finalist to bounce back this weekend as Tampa's Western road trip continues.(RotoWire, )
