Lightning's Ben Bishop: Starting Tuesday against Panthers

Bishop will be between the pipes in Tuesday's home matchup with Florida, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Bishop was a little shaky in his only start of the season thus far, surrendering four goals on 32 shots, but did enough to help his team secure a 6-4 season-opening win over the Red Wings on Thursday. The 6-foot-7 backstop will look to pick up his second win of the season Tuesday in a matchup with a Florida team he struggled against last season. Bishop posted a 1-1-1 record with an unattractive 3.27 GAA and .888 save percentage over three appearances against the Panthers in 2015-16, but they'll be lacking a pair of key forwards in Jonathan Huberdeau and Nick Bjugstad for this one.
