Video: Bishop stacks the pads, denies Plekanec with spectacular glove save


It appears goals will be hard to come by in this series between the Tampa Bay Lightning and Montreal Canadiens. You know, if the first two periods of Game 1 are any indication.

Not much of a surprise, really, that this has turned into a goalie duel. Ben Bishop and Carey Price have both come up with big saves, resulting in the two teams going into the second intermission in a scoreless tie. Both goalies had each gone five consecutive periods without allowing a goal.

Here’s an example of Bishop’s work this evening, as he stacks the pads and denies Tomas Plekanec with the glove on a short-handed two-on-one rush in the second period, keeping it 0-0.
