Ben Bishop Pulled, B’s Win 5-0
The Boston Bruins knocked former UMaine goalie Ben Bishop out of the Tampa Bay goal Saturday night with 4 goals on 17 shots. The Bruins beat the Lightning 5-0. Tuukka Rask stopped all 23 shots he saw in the B’s net for his first shutout of the year.
Ben Bishop had been stellar for TB coming into the game, a 5-0 record and a 1.57 GAA. But the Bruins got a first period goal by David Krejci and then second period goals from Adam McQuaid, Patrice Bergeron and Chris Kelley…and Bishop was removed from the game.
Rask’s first shutout this year is his 17th career shutout. He has played in all 7 games for the Bruins, a 5-2 record and a spectacular GAA of 1.29.
The Bruins play in Buffalo Wednesday night.
