Canadiens vs Lightning Game Five Top Six Minutes: Parenteau, Habs force Game 6

Just when you thought overtime was on the horizon, P-A Parenteau floats a game winning goal over Ben Bishop's glove for the 2-1 win.

The Habs will attempt to stave off elimination for the second straight game. Carey Price is 6-0 in elimination games including his Gold Medal run with Team Canada at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi. Can they pull it off? They'll have some help on the blueline with Nathan Beaulieu...

Bishop shakes off Subban's "horshoe" comment

Lightning goalie Ben Bishop shrugged off comments made by Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban that he had been "sitting on horsehoes" early in the series, helped by luck.

David Desharnais makes it 3-0 thanks to a mistake by Ben Bishop

Is that the tide we hear turning? David Desharnais hasn't been having great games in the playoffs to say the least. What he needed was a bit of luck, or an error on the part of the Lightning. Ben Bishop obliged. After streaking down the left wing, Desharnais blasted a slap shot at Bishop's glove, and the Tampa goaltender somehow found a way to replicate his own goal at the hands of Max Pacioretty from earlier in the series. That made it three goals on 14 shots, and it marked the end of Bishop's night, as coach Jon Cooper pulled him in favour of backup Andrei Vasilevskiy.

Canadiens vs Lightning Game One Top Six Minutes: Ben Bishop, ruiner of everything

The Bolts and the Canadiens met in game one, but only the Bolts came up victorious. 1st Period My laptop ominously stopped working right before I started typing this. So I'm guessing Tampa Bay is going to blow the Habs out in this game. Why does this game have to start at 7:00? How many posts can the Habs hit in this game? Correction, how many shots can the Habs take in this game? Bishop is 6'7. Did you know that?

2015 NHL Playoffs: Ben Bishop is having a better playoffs than you think

And no, it's not just because of the shutout in Game 7 to eliminate the Detroit Red Wings. Take a gander at overall, all-strengths save percentage for goaltenders in these 2015 NHL Playoffs and you might think Ben Bishop is having a fairly mediocre playoffs, especially excluding an outstanding performance in net in the Tampa Bay Lightning Game 7 win over the Detroit Red Wings in the first round.
