OTTAWA - It'll be Big Ben Bishop in the net in the Battle of Ontario.

Senators coach Paul MacLean confirmed Saturday morning the club’s backup will start in place of the injured Craig Anderson as the Toronto Maple Leafs come to Scotiabank Place for Round 2 of the provincial punchup.

While many thought Binghamton callup Robin Lehner would get the start, MacLean said Bishop, who made 31 saves in a 2-1 shootout victory over the New Jersey Devils Monday, deserves the opportunity to play.
