OTTAWA, March 8 (UPI) -- Ben Bishop won his second game in as many starts this season Thursday, making 25 saves in bringing the Ottawa Senators a 4-1 win over the New York Rangers.
Bishop -- who saw limited duty in two previous NHL campaigns with Minnesota and Chicago -- was called up by Ottawa for a start against Tampa Bay Tuesday. He gave up three goals in a 7-3 win in that one and he was even more solid against the Rangers.
The only goal he allowed came from Ryan Callahan 4:36 into the game. Zach Smith tied it for the Senators 1:14 later and Nick Foligno put Ottawa in front for good late in the opening period.
Martin Biron made 18 saves for the Rangers, who lost for the third time in four games.
