What's the takeaway?
Well, it depends...
Coming to ice near you: Ben Bishop in a glow-in-the-dark mask.
The Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender will sport a creative new mask sometime this season. Bishop's mask, the brainchild of artist David Gunnarsson, will feature lightning bolts that glow within Gunnarsson's G.L.O.W. Tech FX design.
According to the Tampa Tribune, Bishop chose to go with the ambitious glow-in-the-dark scheme...
He’s got 265 goals, 216 assists and 481 points in 472 games. He’s got 90 power play goals, 37 game winning goals and eight hat tricks in his seven year NHL career. He’s a two time Maurice Richard Trophy winner and a three-time All-Star. He’s superstar, Tampa Bay Lightning captain Steven Stamkos and this is how our photographer Christine Gunn sees him.
TopSportsReport’s lead NHL writer, Tyler Jones, wrote a comprehensive NHL power rankings article that includes the usual rankings, as well as notes on each team’s deadline options.

USA-born forward Brandon Bochenski will look to play for the Kazakhstan national hockey team this spring, as the former NHLer is currently in the process of receiving a new citizenship.
During his time in the NHL, Bochenski was rarely used as an offensive threat and more as a bottom six depth forward. In 156 career games, Bochenski was only able to muster 68 points with the Boston...

The Bolts got off quickly as Ondrej Palat scored his 15th goal of the year at 10:53 assisted...

Sam was kind enough to let me have the reins and do this post. I figured with it being Ryan Murray’s return to the line up, Murray of course being my favourite player, it was fitting I write this Aftermath.
