The big thing wasn't that Ben Bishop started the game.

It wasn't that he somehow managed to finish it.

For Bishop, and for his Tampa Bay Lightning, it was the 60 minutes in between that will be remembered.

Bishop added another moment to his growing legacy Monday night, gutting it out in a 3-2

I am guessing , but the mystery of what is ailing Ben Bishop is being kept under raps so Chicago can’t take more of an advantage of it. That means Chicago is looking at a lot of film to see if they can figure it out! I hope they don’t! GO BISHOP! GO BOLTS!

I don’t know how we won that game…but the great thing is Chicago doesn’t know, either! Go Lightning!
