This one’s not for the squeamish.

Bishop saved a shot with his face in Dallas’ season opener against Vegas on Friday and had to leave the game. The Stars were leading 1-0 at the time, and lost 2-1.
He missed Saturday’s loss against the St. Louis Blues as well.
Dallas brought Bishop in May hoping to shore up the goaltending position after two seasons of disappointing crease coverage by Finnish duo Antti Niemi (currently sporting a 26.67 goals-against average) and Kari Lehtonen.
The 6-foot-7 Bishop might want to get a less gaping cage on his mask.
