TAMPA -- Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Ben Bishop played well in his return to the Stanley Cup Final, making 27 saves on 29 shots, but a costly mistake early in Game 5 helped the Chicago Blackhawks to a 2-1 win Saturday at Amalie Arena.
Bishop missed Game 4 because of an undisclosed injury after twice leaving Game 2 in the third period and gutting out a 3-2 win in Game 3 with 36 saves.
The Blackhawks tested Bishop early Saturday, outshooting the Lightning 9-1 in the first 4:50. Bishop stopped a slap shot from Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw from close range, then made a tough save against defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson through traffic off a faceoff.
But Bishop was overly aggressive a little more than a minute later, and his decision led to a goal by Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp.
