Bishop allowed four goals on 26 shots in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Panthers.

It was a rare bad outing for Bishop, who had won four straight with just five goals in that span coming into Sunday's contest. His rate stats continue to lean more toward the middle of the pack, but the 28-year-old's 31 wins are fourth most in the league and he should continue to receive almost every start the rest of the way.

Bishop picked up his second shutout of the season Friday, turning aside all 28 shots in a 4-0 win over the visiting Blackhawks.

Bishop thoroughly enjoyed quieting the scores of red-clad Blackhawks fans that invaded Amalie Arena in this one, picking up his fourth win in a row. He now has 32 victories on the season in 48 appearances, and even though his .914 save percentage and 2.36 GAA are 26th and 15th in the NHL (respectively), he's trending upwards on one of the league's best teams and should be rolled out at every opportunity.

Bishop made 22 saves in Saturday's 4-2 win over Arizona. He made 11 of his final 20 saves in the third period.He'd been only lightly tested up to that point -- the Yotes had just 10 shots through two periods. But he got hit with 12 in the third. He'll get a rest Sunday when Andrei Vasilevskiy starts, so be sure to slot him out in those daily formats.

Bishop stopped 24 of 25 shots in a 4-1 win over the Ducks on Wednesday.That's two solid road wins in a row against San Jose and Anaheim for Bishop, who now has 29 victories on the year. There is some room for improvement as far as his GAA (2.42) and save percentage (.912) is concerned, but simply put -- he's one of the best goalies in the league with one of the most explosive offenses in front of him, and thus is a near-automatic roll in all formats.
