Valtteri Filppula Talks About Ben Bishop & Team Success

Valtteri Filppula Gives Credit To Ben Bishop

After Ben Bishop recorded 23 saves and earned his fifth shutout on the year while setting the Bolts franchise record for wins in a season Valtteri Filppula paid him the best compliment a teammate could, “You can pretty much see where we are in the standings, and he’s a huge part of it.”

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.
