It's no secret that Dallas Stars goaltender Ben Bishop has had a lot of success against the Buffalo Sabres in his career.
He entered the game 12-0-1 with a 1.37 goals-against average and a .951 save percentage against Buffalo. His 12-game winning streak against the Sabres was tied with Pekka Rinne's streak against Edmonton for the longest active streak in the NHL for a goaltender against a single opponent. Bishop had shut the Sabres out in each of their last two meetings, and Dallas had also won the last five matchups, with Buffalo's last head-to-head win coming on Jan. 16, 2017.
Impressive numbers, for sure. But Monday afternoon, one shot opened the door to end Bishop's run. And what a shot it was.
Sabres rookie Victor Olofsson rifled a one-timer into the top corner 6:27 into the second period to give Buffalo the lead, paving the way for a 4-0 Sabres victory at KeyBank Center.
