Coming into Saturday night, Ben Bishop was one of the NHL’s hottest netminders.

By evening’s end, he was anything but.

Bishop, the Tampa Bay starter, was chased from the net after allowing four goals on 17 shots in a 5-0 loss to the Bruins.

Boston dominated the contest from start to finish, getting goals from five different skaters — David Krejci, Adam McQuaid, Patrice Bergeron, Chris Kelly and Shawn Thornton — while Tuukka Rask stopped all shots faced for his first shutout of the season.

The Bruins dominated Tampa with one of their most balanced attacks in recent memory. In addition to the five separate scorers, Boston had 12 different players notch at least one point on Saturday.

As for Bishop, it was a night to forget.

The league’s tallest netminder came into the B’s game on fire, boasting a 5-0-0 record with a .943 save percentage and 1.57 GAA. He’d also wrestled away Tampa Bay’s No. 1 gig from Anders Lindback, who came on in relief late in the second period, allowing one goal.

    My favorite part was seeing a goal assisted by Eriksson and Smith.

    Still not seeing Iggy’s name in the ‘scored a goal’ section. Very nice start to the season.

      The goals will come. I love the way he’s playing so far.
