Bishop allowed three goals on 15 shots in relief of Anton Khudobin in Saturday's 7-0 loss to the Wild.
It was not a good night for either of the Stars' goaltenders. Bishop wasn't a factor in the decision, but his GAA jumped to 2.28 while his save percentage dipped to .927 in 32 appearances. The Stars have over a week to reset from Saturday's poor outing before they face the ever-dangerous Lightning on Jan. 27.
Bishop gave up two goals on 20 shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Sabres.
A pair of empty-net goals by the Sabres made the score look worse than it was, but it was still an unusually weak outing from Bishop. He snapped a four-game winning streak, which dropped him to 16-10-3 with a 2.22 GAA and a .929 save percentage through 31 starts. Bishop's 400th career appearance will be a game to forget. Anton Khudobin is likely to get the nod Saturday in Minnesota for the last game before the Stars' bye week.
Bishop will start between the pipes when the Stars host the Sabres on Thursday, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.
Bishop and Anton Khudobin have paired to form a formidable tandem in the crease this season, with the pair splitting starts fairly equally in the last few weeks. Bishop is riding a four-game winning streak into Thursday's affair, allowing two or fewer goals in each. He's been especially difficult to beat at home, where the veteran netminder sports a 1.91 GAA and a .939 save percentage over 19 appearances.
Bishop permitted two goals on 43 shots in a 3-2 overtime win over the Avalanche on Tuesday.
Bishop was definitely busier than his Avalanche counterpart, Philipp Grubauer, but the former was not fazed. In the end, Bishop earned a fourth straight win, and he's allowed just six goals in that span. He improved to 16-9-3 with a 2.23 GAA and a .930 save percentage in 29 starts this season. The 33-year-old is one of the elite netminders in the league, and he should be started in fantasy whenever he plays.
Bishop will get the road start Tuesday against the Avalanche, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.
Bishop has made two starts since the calendar flipped to 2020, winning both contests and posting a .967 save percentage. His game has taken a hit on the road this year, however, as he's posted a 1.91 GAA at home versus 2.93 on the road. The Avalanche are in a bit of a slump, though, as they've lost three straight contests.
Bishop put up a 27-save shutout in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Ducks.
A goal in each period from the Stars' offense was more than enough for Bishop to work with in his second shutout of the season. The American has now won three straight starts with only four goals allowed on 103 shots. Bishop has a 15-9-3 record with a 2.24 GAA and a .928 save percentage in 29 games. The shutout was also his 33rd career donut. With strong performances lately from both Bishop and Anton Khudobin, interim head coach Rick Bowness will have a tough choice on his hands for Saturday's game in San Jose.
Bishop will get the start for Thursday's road clash against Anaheim, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.
Bishop will draw his first start since he backstopped his team to a victory in the 2020 Winter Classic on New Year's day. His past five starts haven't been great, however, as he's gone 2-3-0 with a 3.57 GAA and .895 save percentage in that span. The 33-year-old will draw a great matchup Thursday, facing a Ducks offense that ranks 29th in the league in goals per game (2.53).
Bishop stopped 31 of 33 shots in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Predators.
Bishop gave up a pair of power-play goals in the first period, but he was excellent as the Stars rallied back. He's now won two starts in a row after a 0-3-1 run. The 33-year-old improved to 14-9-3 with a 2.33 GAA and a .926 save percentage in 28 games. He could have a chance to go for a third straight win Friday against the Red Wings.
Bishop will tend the twine at home versus Nashville on Wednesday, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.

Bishop made 41 saves in a 3-2 shootout win over Colorado on Saturday night.
It was a season-high number of saves for Big Ben, who hadn't won since Dec. 10. This was a much-needed bounce back for Bishop -- he'd allowed 15 goals in his previous four starts. Perhaps the big man in red stopped at his house and delivered a new goal stick.
Bishop will guard the home net in Saturday's matchup against the Avalanche, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.
Bishop has lost four straight outings, and he posted an .862 save percentage and 4.40 GAA in that stretch. Perhaps the holiday break can help him get back on track, but it won't come easy nonetheless, as the Avalanche lead the league with 3.63 goals per game.
Bishop allowed four goals on 29 shots in Sunday's 5-1 loss to Calgary.
The struggles continued for Bishop and the Stars, the former having allowed 10 goals in his last two outings.

Bishop will start between the pipes for Sunday's game against the Flames, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio reports.
Bishop will handle the final game before the holiday break and has posted a 2-2-1 record along with a 2.71 GAA and .915 save percentage in his last five starts. He'll face a great matchup against a Flames offense that has struggled this season and ranks 27th in the league in goals per game (2.59).
Bishop gave up six goals on 20 shots before being replaced by Anton Khudobin midway through the second period of Friday's 7-4 loss to the Panthers.
The veteran netminder had allowed more than three goals in a start only once all season before Friday's debacle. Bishop is 0-2-1 over his last three starts, but he still carries a strong 2.29 GAA and .926 save percentage through 25 games. Expect him to shake this one off quickly.
Bishop will patrol the crease during Friday's road game versus the Panthers, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Bishop was pretty sharp during his last start Monday against the Oilers, stopping 26 of 28 shots, but he ultimately suffered his 10th loss of the season due to insufficient goal support.

Bishop stopped 26 of 28 shots in a 2-1 loss to Edmonton on Monday.
Bishop fared far better versus the Oilers this time around compared to the last meeting. Bishop was pulled after giving up three goals on 15 shots when the two teams previously squared off.

A tough matchup awaits next when they travel to Tampa Bay on Thursday to face Bishop's former team.
Bishop will be between the pipes at home versus Edmonton on Monday, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.
Bishop remains undefeated in regulation in his last five outings, as he posted a 3-0-2 record and .950 save percentage.

Bishop allowed three goals on 32 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Golden Knights on Friday.
He yielded two goals in the second period, but Bishop was having a pretty strong game going into overtime. Unfortunately, the 3-on-3 goal dropped his save percentage almost 30 points for the game and handed him the overtime defeat. However, Bishop still has very strong numbers with a 12-6-3 record, 2.07 GAA and .933 save percentage in 23 games this season.
Bishop will get the starting nod for Friday's home clash with Vegas, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio reports.
Bishop is riding a three-game winning streak which includes a shutout performance versus New Jersey his last time out. The netminder could face a heavy workload from a Knights squad that is averaging 33.6 shots per game (sixth highest in the league).
Bishop stopped all 26 shots in Tuesday's 2-0 win over New Jersey.
