Ben Bishop, Lightning goalie, puts one in his own net

Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Ben Bishop is getting his first taste of playoff hockey, and it's been a little rough.

With Tampa Bay already down two games to one in its series against the Red Wings, Bishop scored a goal on himself and received two minor penalties in a terrible start to Game 4 in Detroit on Thursday night.

The first penalty was for holding in the second period, followed by a tripping call in the third.

Proving that a lot can change in a year, the 28-year-old missed the playoffs last season due to injury and many reasoned that his absence played a huge role in the Montreal Canadiens' first-round sweep of the Lightning. 

Most people aren't calling him the Lightning's saviour this year. 

Fortunately for Bishop, Tampa Bay scored twice in a 77-second span late in the third period to force overtime, then completed their comeback victory thanks to Tyler Johnson's OT goal.

With the 3-2 win in extra time, the Lightning tied the series at two games apiece.
