UM’s Ben Bishop Takes On Bruins
Former UMaine goalie Ben Bishop leads the highly touted Tampa Bay Lightning into Boston Garden tonight for a matchup against the Bruins.
Bishop is coming off a 1-0 overtime win at Montreal Tuesday. He is among the leaders in almost every NHL goalie stat catagory. Bishop is 33-11-3 with a 2.34 GAA.
The Lightning back up Bishop with the top scoring offense in the league.
Meanwhile, the Bruins have won four of their last five games and have solidified their spot for a wildcard playoff spot. Goalie Tuukka Rask is 27-16-10 with a 2.31 GAA.
With Tampa Bay just a point out of the top spot in the east and the B's looking at a #8 or #7 playoff spot, these two teams could be opening round playoff opponents.
NOTE: Live coverage of the B's vs Tamp Bay begins at 6:30pm on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket.
