Bishop lost for the first time this season, making 20 of 23 saves as Tampa dropped a 3-2 decision to the Oilers on Monday.

Big Ben fell victim to a couple of unfortunate goals in this one, as the Oilers' Taylor Hall converted a second-period penalty shot before Ryan Nugent-Hopkins blew the game winner past him in the third after a ghastly defensive-zone giveaway by Ondrej Palat. Bishop will probably take a rest in favor of backup Evgeni Nabokov when the Bolts play less than 24 hours later Tuesday in Calgary, but look for last year's Vezina Trophy finalist to bounce back this weekend as Tampa's Western road trip continues.

Bishop stopped 30 of the 32 shots he faced in Saturday's win over Vancouver.

Bishop is now 3-0-1 this season with a .933 save percentage and 1.71 GAA. You can't ask for much more from this fantasy stud, who is well on his way to another excellent season. With a dynamic team in front of him, Bishop should finish the season as a top-five fantasy goalie.

Bishop make 16 saves in Monday's 7-1 win over Montreal.

The score was out of hand, but Bishop still had to deliver some solid saves during the game. He was particularly strong post-to-post, but that's not much of a surprise given the length of those legs. He looks every part the Vezina nominee from 2013-14. Use him well.

Bishop will get the start in net against the Canadiens on Monday, Marc Antoine Godin of La Presse reports.

Bishop is off to a nice start this season, allowing just four goals through two games so far. The Lightning will need him to be excellent Monday as they take on the Canadiens, who made it to last year's Eastern Conference Finals.

Bishop will be between the pipes Saturday against the Senators, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.

Though he's only ranked among the league's dominant goalies for one season, Bishop has fared well against the Senators over the entirety of his career, owning a 4-0-1 record. Bishop kicked off his season Thursday with a solid showing in the victory over the Panthers, stopping 19 of 21 shots.

Bishop stopped 19 of 21 in Thursday's season-opening overtime win against the Panthers.

Coming off a massive breakout in 2013-14, huge things are expected from Bishop this year, and he's off to a solid start. He'll presumably be in goal again Saturday against the Senators.

Bishop is lined up to start Thursday's season opener against the Panthers, Erik Erlendsson of The Tampa Tribune reports.

Bishop is entrenched as the Lightning's top goaltender after signing a two-year deal with the club during the offseason. He has an enticing matchup in Thursday's contest, taking on a Florida team that finished second to last in the NHL last season in goals scored.
