Bishop named Third Star of the Week



It's not often that a Monday is a banner day for anybody, but today will go down as a good one for Ben Bishop. He was named the NHL's Third Star of the Week for the week ending Feb. 24.

Obviously there was some trepidation when Craig Anderson went down against the New York Rangers, but Bishop has the Sens in good hands. He may be best described as "sneaky good" last week, as the numbers underscore just how solid he was in goal.

From the NHL:

THIRD STAR -- BEN BISHOP, G, OTTAWA SENATORS

Bishop went 3-0-0 with a 2.03 goals-against average and .931 save percentage as the Senators won all four of their games. He posted 30 saves and denied all three shooters in a 2-1 shootout victory over the New Jersey Devils Feb. 18. Bishop then relieved an injured Craig Anderson and made 11 stops, plus another six in the shootout, to pick up a 3-2 win against the New York Rangers Feb. 21. He closed the week with 26 saves in a 3-2 triumph over the Toronto Maple Leafs Feb. 23. The Denver, Colo., native has played in 28 career NHL games, posting a 10-10-3 record with a 2.63 goals-against average, .906 save percentage and one shutout.

Bishop is going to look to keep the ball rolling tonight when he faces the Montreal Canadiens.

With tonight's matchup against Carey Price and his previous two against Henrik Lundqvist and Martin Brodeur respectively in addition to appearing in relief for Anderson, Bishop has certainly had his work cut out for him and found a way to thrive.

If you sneak a peek at the upcoming schedule, don't expect that to change.
