Bishop has compiled a 21-16-4 record while posting a 2.50 GAA and .920 save percentage in 44 appearances this season. Bishop hasn't been able to replicate the numbers he posted a season ago (27-15-2 record, 1.98 GAA, .934 save percentage), but it's hard to complain about a third straight 20-plus win campaign and a .920 save percentage. If the NHL ultimately resumes regular-season play, the 33-year-old netminder could pick up 3-to-5 more victories down the stretch.
Bishop gave up four goals on 27 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Rangers on Tuesday. Bishop has lost four consecutive games, yielding exactly four goals in three of those outings. He was down 4-0 on Tuesday before the game was 40 minutes old, a daunting deficit at the best of times, but especially during this four-game stretch in which the Stars have averaged just 1.25 goals per night. Bishop will try to snap his losing ways Thursday against Florida.
Bishop will get the starting nod at home versus the Rangers on Tuesday, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports. Bishop gave up just one goal on 23 shots faced in his last outing, his first since suffering a lower-body injury. The 32-year-old netminder should reach the 50-game mark and could challenge for the 30-win threshold for the first time since leaving Tampa Bay.
Bishop made 22 saves in Saturday's 1-0 loss to the Predators. The veteran netminder came up with some big stops and didn't appear hampered by the minor lower-body injury that kept him out earlier in the week. Unfortunately, the Stars were unable to solve Juuse Saros for the second straight game, giving Bishop no margin for error. One the season, he now sports a solid 2.46 GAA and .921 save percentage.
Bishop will guard the home goal Saturday versus the Predators, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio reports. Bishop was cleared to play Thursday but served as the backup to Anton Khudobin in the contest. He'll look to shake off his lower-body issue and some struggles in the cage all in one Saturday, but he'll have his work cut out for him versus a Nashville team that averages 3.31 goals per game on the road (third in NHL).
