Bishop Shuts Out 'Canes In Tampa Bay Debut, 5-0

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Ben Bishop earned a shutout in his debut with Tampa Bay and the Lightning routed the reeling Carolina Hurricanes 5-0 on Thursday night.

Bishop, acquired a day earlier from Ottawa in exchange for promising rookie Cory Conacher, stopped a career-high 45 shots.

Teddy Purcell, Tom Pyatt and Keith Aulie scored during the Lightning's three-goal second period.

Martin St. Louis had a goal and two assists, NHL goals leader Steven Stamkos had two assists, and Benoit Pouliot added a goal and an assist to help Tampa Bay earn points for the fourth straight game.

The Lightning moved into a tie with Carolina for third in the mediocre Southeast Division.

Dan Ellis stopped 25 shots for the reeling Hurricanes.
