Lightning's Ben Bishop: Edges Panthers in shootout

Bishop stopped 28 of 31 shots through the first 65 minutes and then five of six in the shootout to take home a 4-3 victory against Florida on Tuesday.

Backup Andrei Vasilevskiy's lone start was better than either of Bishop's two so far, but the towering netminder still has a pair of wins to show for his work. He's also coming off a .926 save mark last year, so fantasy owners should remain optimistic about Bishop even though his workload is projected to shrink a bit from the last few seasons due to the emergence of Vasilevskiy. The 29-year-old Denver native is unlikely to reach his fourth consecutive season of 60 or more starts, but he'll still offer plenty of wins and strong ratios.
