Big Ben Bishop

- February 23rd, 2013

So, it’ll be Big Ben Bishop vs. the Toronto Maple Leafs Saturday night at Scotiabank Place. No surprise really.
Those who thought it would be Robin Lehner were being naive.
Bishop deserves the chance. He has been here all year.
He played well Monday vs. New Jersey.
Didn’t love what he did against the Rangers Thursday but they won and he’s a big body which really helped in the shootout.
The Senators will have to get used to life without Craig Anderson.
He’s day-to-day. My guess he’s week-to-week.
Ankles are tough on a goalie.
Sprains can be worse than a break.
He has to be able to skate first.
When he can skate he will be close to a return.
I was surprised to see the Senators have allowed the second-most shots in the league behind the Buffalo Sabres.
That says a lot about the way Anderson has played.
Now it is Bishop’s turn.
Then it will be Lehner’s because the kid does deserve a shot.
The Battle of Ontario.
Always fun.
Enjoy folks.
