The Bolts

"The Rangers' Michael Grabner, who scored nine goals all last season, was celebrating his hat trick, the completion of which put the Lightning down 6-0. Hats fell from the Madison Square Garden stands, a few landing on the subdued Tampa Bay bench." [Tampa Bay Times]

Lightning team dentist says Bishop will be smiling again soon. "We're going to make him look great again. He has a great smile. We want him to smile and represent the Lightning just like he always has," Dr. Rivera told FOX 13. [Fox News]
