The Dallas Stars will get their starting goaltender back on Tuesday night when Ben Bishop suits up against the Florida Panthers.

The 32-year-old Bishop left last week's contest against the Minnesota Wild with a lower-body injury.

Before his departure, Bishop was in the midst of a franchise-record shutout streak that stands at 230 minutes, 53 seconds entering Tuesday's contest. The previous Stars record was held by Ed Belfour, whose streak lasted 219 minutes, 26 seconds in 2000.

Bishop's run is the longest in the NHL since San Jose Sharks goaltender Martin Jones shut out his opponents for 234:33 during the 2015-16 season. The longest shutout streak in the modern era belongs to Brian Boucher, then a member of the Phoenix Coyotes, at 332:01 set during the 2003-04 season.

Overall, the 6-foot-7 Bishop is enjoying a career year. He sports a 2.05 goals-against average and a .933 save percentage, while the Stars are currently in a playoff position despite ranking 29th in scoring.
