New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Ben Bishop responded from a shaky performance with the biggest win of his career, a 22-save shutout to propel the Tampa Bay Lightning into the Stanley Cup Finals. Bishop's third shutout of the postseason helped Tampa Bay defeat the New York Rangers 2-0 in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals on Friday night. Bishop became the first goaltender to record shutouts in each of his first two Game 7 starts. He stopped 31 shots against the Red Wings on April 29 during the first round. Alex Killorn and Ondrej Palat each scored during the third period for the Lightning, who will look to win their first Stanley Cup since 2004, when they defeated the Calgary Flames in seven games. Tampa Bay will face the winner of Saturday's Game 7 of the Western Conference finals between Chicago and Anaheim on Wednesday. Henrik Lundqvist made 23 saves for the Rangers, who entered the game with a 7-0 record at Madison Square Garden in Game 7s and 10 straight home wins when facing elimination. New York forced Game 7 with a 7-3 win on Tuesday, but were shut out in the final 145:43 of the series on home ice thanks to Bishop's Game 5 whitewash.
