Ben Bishop kicked out 30 of 31 shots in regulation in Ottawa's 2-1 shootout victory Monday afternoon.
Bishop bested Ilya Kovalchuk, Patrik Elias, and Bobby Butler in the shootout. That was Bishop's first victory of the season and it comes at a critical time for Ottawa. With Jason Spezza and Erik Karlsson both sidelined, potentially for the remainder of the season, goals are going to be hard to come by for Ottawa. If they want to make the playoffs, they're going to need to continue to win this type of contest.
