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.



I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
