Ben Bishop Fights Boredom As Lightning Pepper Peters
Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Ben Bishop sat back as his team poured shot after shot at Hurricanes goalie Justin Peters. Entering Saturday evenings contest the Lightning season high for shots on goal was 45 against the Montreal Canadiens on November 12.
They ended tonight with 50 shots total with 49 of them coming in regulation. Their previous season high for shots on goal in a period was 16 (multiple times) and they exceeded that in both the first (19) and third (17) periods.
Bishop faced just 27 shots (26 in regulation) and after the game remarked that he had to remind himself that he wasn’t a fan watching the game back there.
