06.13.2015 Tampa Bay Lightning versus Chicago Blackhawks SCF game 5 coverage

Follow @RawCharge The Tampa Bay Lightning wouldn't be here without Ben Bishop. Yes, his numbers this season aren't the Vezina-caliber, eye-popping stats he produced a season ago when he was a Vezina trophy finalist. His save percentage dropped from .924 to a near-league average .916. "Near league-average" is probably an apt way to describe Bishop; he's good, certainly capable of stealing a game or a series, but not a world-beater by any stretch of the imagination. That's what Bishop is. In many ways, he's exactly what the Lightning need: competent. Capable. When the Lightning play...

Lightning not sure which goalie will start Game 5

Lightning not sure which goalie will start Game 5 Tampa Bay head coach Jon Cooper is unsure if injured goalie Ben Bishop will return for Saturday night’s Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals against Chicago. Bishop sat out the Lightning’s 2-1 loss in Game 4 on Wednesday with a lower-body injury. The series is tied 2-2. “I do not know sitting here today if Ben Bishop is going to play on Saturday,” Cooper said Friday. If he’s not in the pregame skate (Saturday), that’s a pretty good indication of whether he’s going to play or not. When we made the decision not to play him the...

2015 Stanley Cup Final: On Ben Bishop, Andrei Vasilevskiy, what is, and what ought to be

The story of the 2014-15 Tampa Bay Lightning has largely been written with Ben Bishop as a main character. In spite of all better judgement, letting that story end with Bishop in a main role is ultimately fitting. The Tampa Bay Lightning wouldn't be here without Ben Bishop. Yes, his numbers this season aren't the Vezina-caliber, eye-popping stats he produced a season ago when he was a Vezina trophy finalist.

2015 Stanley Cup Final: Ben Bishop held himself out of Game 4

Perhaps looking for extra rest for a now critically important Game 5, Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop reportedly made the decision to hold himself out of Game 4 in Chicago. Jon Cooper is taking the day off. In media availability today, associate coach Rick Bowness fielded the questions in lieu of the usually diplomatic and tight-lipped Cooper. Bowness filled in admirably, but was revealing in some of his answers to questions about the ongoing Ben Bishop injury situation: Bowness on Bishop: "He's a great competitor, he knew he couldn't give 100 percent so he made (the decision)....

Lightning goalie Ben Bishop out for Game 4 with undisclosed injury

Ben Bishop stood alone in a hallway leading to the Lightning's locker room Wednesday morning, his knees swallowed by a pair of Lightning-blue shorts as he bounced a pair of still-packaged skate laces — which may as well have been his thoughts — off a white, cinder block wall.
