Video: How, exactly, did Ben Bishop make this incredible save?

5 Comments

Ben Bishop recorded the shut out as the Tampa Bay Lightning eliminated the New York Islanders on Sunday, and his incredible acrobatic save helped kill any hopes of a miraculous comeback attempt.

After a Cal Clutterbuck shot rebounded off the glass back out front, Bishop contorted his body, throwing down the right pad to rob Johnny Boychuk near the side of the net. That maintained Tampa Bay’s three-goal lead early in the third period.

Twenty seconds of game time later, the Bolts upped their lead to four on Nikita Kucherov‘s league-leading ninth post-season goal.

Game over. Series over.
