Ben Bishop Talks About Record Setting Night

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.”



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.
