Lightning Ben Bishop Gears Up For The Panthers

The Tampa Bay Lightning take on the Florida Panthers tonight for their home opener at the Tampa Bays Times Forum.

The Bolt are 2-1 after a three game road trip where goalie Ben Bishop shined with a .936 save percentage.

“It was a good road trip but there’s still a lot of learning to do,” Bishop told the media after Thursday’s morning skate.

“We’re playing well as a team, when we’ve needed to score we’ve scored,” Bishop said.

On the other end of the ice Panthers goalie Tim Thomas will be a question mark, he left Tuesday’s night game against the Philadelphia Flyers with a lower body injury (groin).
