Ben Bishop scores spectacular own goal (Video)

Anyone know if the Tampa Bay Rays are looking for a designated hitter? If so, we’ve got someone great in mind, and he’s probably going to be available soon.

Who is this person, you ask? None other than Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender, Ben Bishop.

Detroit’s Joakim Andersson fired the puck in on net just after crossing the blueline. The shot hit Bishop, bounced up in the air, and the goalie batted the puck backwards. The puck hits the crossbar, drops down to the ice and slides into the corner. Both Bishop and defenseman Jason Garrison wave at the puck as it glides completely over the line. Take a look:

The goal put the Red Wings up 2-0, inching Detroit ever closer to the 3-1 series lead. But the Lightning scored twice in the third period to force overtime.

All of the Lightning’s struggles can’t be pinned on Bishop. He’s done what he could, but the team in front of him – the highest scoring team in the regular season – hasn’t provided him with the run support he’s needed to close out a game.
