CALGARY - For Kerry Joseph, one bad quarter outweighed three positives.

Largely due to a strong performance by Joseph, the Saskatchewan Roughriders built up a 27-15 lead over the Calgary Stampeders through three quarters.

The Stamps (14-2) then responded with 25 straight points in the fourth quarter to win 40-27. It was the fifth straight loss for the Riders (9-8) and the second in a row with Joseph at quarterback.

WINNIPEG - Ben Bishop stepped up when the Tampa Bay Lightning needed him most.

Although they were outshot 42-27, Bishop kept the Lightning in the game as Tampa Bay downed the Winnipeg Jets 4-2 on Friday.

"He was the factor in the first two periods for sure," said Lightning coach Jon Cooper. "You need that last line of defence and if you're going to win some games and you want to put yourself in a position to be in the playoffs, you need goaltending."

Bishop gave was modest, giving credit to his team's defensive play.
