Ben Bishop Sets Tampa Bay Lightning Franchise Record For Wins In A Single Season With 31
This weekend the Tampa Bay Lightning are celebrating their Stanley Cup Championship team of 2003-2004 and the goalie on that team was Nikolai Khabibulin who held the record with wins in a single season with 30 (set in 2002-2003 season)
On Saturday evening Bolts goalie Ben Bishop won his 31st game of the season to break Khabibulin’s mark and did it by recording a shutout against the New Jersey Devils and all-time wins leader Martin Brodeur.
Bishop remarked about Brodeur, “He’s got a few more than me, It’s always nice playing against the best in the game, if not the best ever. So, whenever you can get a win against him, you remember those.”
As for becoming the teams all time single season leader in wins Bishop said “It’s a nice accomplishment but a whole lot of credit to the guys in front of me – I don’t get that without them.”
