Ben Bishop turned a near gaffe into two highlight-reel saves Saturday.

The Dallas Stars goalie stole a goal from the St. Louis Blues with two lunging saves on one David Perron shot during the second period of Game 2 of the Western Conference Second Round.

Perron's shot off the faceoff went wide, but it hit the end boards and trickled into Bishop's crease. He tried to smother the puck, but it squirted away and he had to sweep it off the goal line with his arm before it could roll into the unguarded net.

"It went off the boards, then it was coming at me and hit my pad," Bishop said after the game. "It was kind of one of those, oh-you-know-what moments, and luckily I was able to keep it out."

They were two of Bishop's 14 second-period saves, and the most impressive of his 32 stops in the Stars 4-2 victory that evened the best-of-7 series at 1.
