Bishop was pressed into relief Saturday after a wobbly start by Kari Lehtonen and earned the win on the back of 39 shutout minutes. He made 18 saves.

EDGE Analysis

Bishop entered the game down 3-2 and made some sharp saves to give his mates a chance to dig themselves out of a hole. He had been given the day off after a wobbly start Thursday against the Bolts, so let's hope this game sharpens Bishop's focus going forward.

Bishop allowed six goals on just 28 shots during Thursday's 6-1 loss to Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

Tampa Bay entered averaging the most goals per 60 minutes (3.95) in the league, so this was a daunting matchup for Bishop. However, it's further discouraging that he's now surrendered 11 goals through his past two starts. Still, Dallas has shown considerable improvement defensively this season and allowed the fifth fewest high-danger scoring chances (9.93) in the league, so downgrading Bishop is probably premature. It's not out of the question to be selective with his matchups moving forward, though.

Bishop will get the starting nod for Thursday's clash with the Lightning.

EDGE Analysis

Bishop will make his first trip back to Tampa Bay after being traded away last year. In his three seasons as the Lightning starter, the netminder racked up an impressive 112 wins. Unfortunately for the 30-year-old, he will be facing the league's most potent offense (3.89 goals per game), which could make his return to Amalie Arena less than enjoyable.

Bishop saved just 23 of 28 shots during Monday's 5-1 loss to Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

This was a disappointing showing from the veteran backstop, and especially after posting a shutout over the Islanders in his previous start. Additionally, it further affirmed Bishop's game-to-game inconsistency to start the campaign, as he's now allowed three goals or more in six of his past eight outings. His .907 save percentage and 2.67 GAA are mediocre ratios, and while it's unlikely Kari Lehtonen cuts into Bishop's playing time too much, the Dallas backup could make a case for an uptick in starts with a strong showing Tuesday against Florida.

Bishop will man the crease for Monday's matchup against Carolina, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Bishop's first season as a Star hasn't necessarily gone to plan, he was stellar in his last start, a 5-0 win over the Islanders on Friday. However, that was just the second occasion in Bishop's past eight appearances that he allowed fewer than three goals. Bishop's opponent Monday, the Hurricanes, sit 23rd in league goal scoring, so they could make for a good candidate for Bishop to build upon his strong performance against.

Bishop needed to make just 14 saves to earn his first shutout of the season during Friday's 5-0 win over the Islanders.

EDGE Analysis

There has been little game-to-game consistency from Bishop through his first 13 starts, but with a 7-4 record, .915 save percentage and 2.48 GAA, his numbers have been serviceable in the majority of fantasy settings. The Stars are playing better team defense to start 2017-18, so Bishop is in position to continue being a strong asset. Additionally, there's a chance he's undervalued in some circles, so tabling buy-low offers could pay off.

Bishop will be in goal against the Islanders on Friday, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the exception of his matchup with Vancouver on Oct. 30, Bishop has really struggled of late, as he has posted a 1-3-0 record in his previous five outings. In those contests, the netminder logged an abysmal 3.64 GAA and .887 save percentage. While it may have seemed ridiculous to suggest at the onset of the season, the 30-year-old could suddenly find himself ceding starts to Kari Lehtonen -- who has given up just one goal in each of his last three appearances -- if he can't figure his game out soon.

Bishop saved 22 of 25 shots during Monday's 4-1 loss to Winnipeg.

EDGE Analysis

Bishop also lost his previous outing to the Jets, and he's now allowed three goals or more in six of his last seven appearances for a disappointing .892 save percentage and 3.60 GAA. Those are concerning marks because Dallas has been far from a defensive juggernaut over the past few seasons. Additionally, backup Kari Lehtonen sports serviceable .914 and 2.40 marks. It's far too early to abandon ship, though, as the Stars have made a long-term commitment to Bishop. He'll likely draw in again for a home start against the Islanders on Friday.

Bishop will man the crease against Winnipeg on Monday, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

In his last appearance, Bishop allowed four goals to Winnipeg while making just 22 saves in what was arguably his worst performance as a Star to date. On the season, the 6-foot-7 netminder has accumulated a 2.66 GAA and a .913 save percentage with a 6-3-0 record. Bishop is also still looking for his first shutout of the year, and getting it against the Jets Monday would be great revenge after the last tilt.

Bishop gave up four goals on 26 shots in Thursday's loss to the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

It's been up-and-down for Bishop lately, as he's seen his save percentage drop to .913 on the season. The Stars' defense is lacking, but Bishop is locked into the starting gig and should pick up plenty of victories this season. After a 38-save win against Vancouver on Monday, Bishop had no answer for a Jets' team that is catching steam. Look for the veteran goaltender to bounce back, as he's followed some poor showings with some strong ones this year.
