by Jeff Odom @jeffodom /

It's safe to say Stars goaltender Ben Bishop was in full "beast mode" in Game 7 on Tuesday.

While it wasn't enough to push Dallas past St. Louis in double overtime, the Vezina Trophy finalist earned the praise of many around the Twitterverse for his heroic, 52-save effort to help keep the Stars ailve on the road.

From ESPN puck personality John Buccigross to former Stars netminder Marty Turco, here is a collection of the best tweets from the night:

Bish made some NHL postseason history, too.

Tweet from @PR_NHL: Ben Bishop of the @DallasStars is the fifth goaltender to make 50+ saves in a #Game7 since 1955-56.The most in that span is 73, a mark set by Kelly Hrudey in the 1987 Division Semifinals dubbed the ���Easter Epic��� (w/ NYI). #NHLStats #StanleyCup


Of course, the official Stars Twitter account showed its appreciation for Big Ben.

Tweet from @DallasStars: Bish is playing his heart out tonight. #GoStars

Tweet from @DallasStars: Ben Bishop is on another level. Incredible stuff. #GoStars

Tweet from @DallasStars: Unreal. #GoStars #StanleyCup


The Stars didn't advance in the end, but it was a hard-fought series from both sides -- and a performance for the ages by the Dallas netminder.

Tweet from @DallasStars: Both teams left it all out there tonight and much respect to the @StLouisBlues for a hard-fought series.
