How anyone could possibly blame Bishop for that or call it a soft goal is surprising. Killorn and Cizikas skated directly in front of Bishop (maybe about 3 feet away from him) and Martin took a low wrister when his blade (and by extension puck) were screened by Gudas' skate and stick. The wrister makes no sound and can be a sneaky shot, Bishop had no opportunity to see the puck as it was shot (thanks to Gudas), and even if he miraculously picked up the puck mid flight Killorn and Cizikas passed right in front of him maybe 3 feet away. And to those saying it was a weak shot or that it bounced...what? That puck was not weak, it was quite a tricky shot.
The timing of the goal was unfortunate, but in no way was it soft or Bishop's fault.
