Bishop, Tampa Ready For Eastern Conference Final [VIDEO]
Former Black Bear Ben Bishop is gearing up for another Eastern Conference Finals in between the pipes, which gets underway tonight from Pittsburgh. Bishop has won eight games already this postseason for the Lightning heading into this series.
Tampa Bay is trying to reach the Stanley Cup final for the second time in as many years and will face a Penguins team that just finished off the team with the best record for the regular season in the Washington Capitals. Bishop has been great for the Lightning with an 8-2 record and is averaging just 1.89 goals per contest. The 29-year old is just one win away for the most professional victories in the NHL playoffs by a former UMaine goaltender.
Game one of the best of seven series gets underway at 8:00 p.m. tonight.
