Ben Bishop stretched out his entire six-foot-seven frame to make what could be considered one of the early contenders for ‘save of the year.’
Only one issue Bishop might take with it – he caused the turnover that led to the scoring chance.
Playing the puck in the trapezoid, Bishop passed the puck directly to an on-rushing Kyle Okposo. The forward had a guaranteed goal on his stick until Bishop dove like Superman across his crease. Miraculously, the Tampa Bay Lightning netminder made the save.
Joe Yerdon of NHL.com asked Bishop what went through his mind when he turned the puck over to Okposo. His answer was simple, “Oh s—.”
Oh [expletive], indeed.
