Lightning goalie Ben Bishop grew up a Rams fan, so he certainly wasn’t pleased when owner Stan Kroenke received approval to move the team to Los Angeles.
Lightning goalie Ben Bishop stopped all 21 shots he faced in Tuesday’s win over the Avalanche, but he enjoyed it more than any of his other 13 career shutouts.
Bishop, a St. Louis native and former goalie for the Blues, took extra pleasure in dominating the Stan Kroenke-owned Colorado franchise on the same night Kroenke’s Rams moved to Los Angeles.
Feels good to shutout Kroenke's hockey team the day he moves my childhood football team! Sad day for Rams fans!!— Ben Bishop (@Benbishop30) January 13, 2016
Elsewhere in the NHL, Blues fans took a moment during Tuesday’s win over the Devils to let Kroenke know what they think about the move.
Kroenke owns Arsenal in the English Premier League, too, and they play Wednesday afternoon against Liverpool. Although Liverpool probably doesn’t have any Rams fans on the roster.
