    • Bochenski pops up with pair of goals

      News: Lightning RW Brandon Bochenski scored a pair of goals Tuesday in Tampa Bay's loss to the Hurricanes.
      Analysis: The 28-year-old Bochenski has spent parts of five seasons in the NHL but has yet to stick around for more than half a season. Continue to ignore him in all Fantasy formats.
    • Lightning recall Bochenski

      News: The Lightning have recalled RW Brandon Bochenski from the AHL.
      Analysis: Bochenski is merely organizational depth and can be ignored in Fantasy.
    • Bochenski clears waivers, in AHL

      News: The Lightning assigned Brandon Bochenski to Norfolk of the AHL on Tuesday. Bochenski was placed on waivers Monday.
      Analysis: Bochenski played in 12 games with Tampa Bay, recording a goal and five points. Bochenski initially played well following his recall in January and even got some top-line time. But we figured it wouldn't last and it didn't. Bochenski is merely organizational depth and can be ignored in Fantasy.
    • Bochenski placed on waivers

      News: The Lightning have played RW Brandon Bochenski on waivers
      Analysis: Bochenski has only played 19 NHL games over the last couple of seasons and the Lightning clearly don't see him as a full-time option yet. Continue to ignore him in the majority of Fantasy leagues.
    • Bochenski doing well since recall

      News: The Sports Xchange reports Lightning LW Brandon Bochenski picked up three assists on Tuesday to tie a career high for points in a 7-4 victory against Washington.
      Analysis: Since being called up Jan. 2, Bochenski has a goal and five points in five games. Bochenski played his most recent game on a line with Steven Stamkos and Martin St. Louis and has been seeing plenty of power-play time. This latest run could keep Bochenski in the NHL, but we aren't sure how long his hot streak will last. He still has marginal Fantasy appeal until further notice.
    • Bochenski has two points, plus-1

      News: Lightning RW Brandon Bochenski scored a goal, tallied an assist and finished at plus-1 on Sunday against the Devils. Bochenski, who was recalled from Norfolk of the AHL on Jan. 2, scored on a quick shot from right in front after Rob Niederrmayer deflected a Steven Stamkos pass right to him at 5:13 on another power play.
      Analysis: Bochenski has played only 11 games in the NHL since the 2008-09 season. He has pretty much become organizational depth after being traded by a handful of teams. Despite the big night, Bochenski has marginal Fantasy appeal.
    • Lightning-Devils game postponed

      News: The Tampa Bay Lightning are going to have to wait a little longer to end their 10-game losing streak against the New Jersey Devils. How long? Nobody really knows after the Devils-Lightning game was suspended Friday night when a lighting problem on one side of the arena could not be fixed. The teams waited almost two hours before the league decided to suspend the game with the Lightning leading 3-0 with 9:12 left in the period. "We felt the teams could not continue playing," said Colin Campbell, the NHL's senior executive vice president of hockey operations. "We tried for an hour and 52 minutes to restore power and appropriate lighting, but were left with no alternative but to postpone further play for the evening." The game will resume at the point where play was stopped. Lightning coach Rick Tocchet wanted the game to resume Sunday, provided the building was available. "I think we got a five-minute power play, too," Tocchet quipped. Devils president and general manager Lou Lamoriello said a circuit breaker at three-year-old Prudential Center went down during the second period. The teams went to their locker rooms after initially waiting about 10 minutes for the lights to come back on. Lamoriello said arena personnel turned up the LED lights on the scoreboard to provide more light, but there were too many shadows for play to continue. "Safety has to come first," said Lamoriello, who said he was in constant contact with the league during the problem.
      Analysis: The teams could not afford to wait much longer for a decision on Friday, as the Devils play in Montreal and the Lightning are in Philadelphia on Saturday night. The last time an NHL game was postponed was on Nov. 22, 2005, when Detroit defenseman Jiri Fischer had a seizure on the bench in the first period of a game against the Nashville Predators. Doctors had to perform CPR on Fischer. Steve Downie, Brandon Bochenski and Steven Stamkos scored for Tampa Bay, which had won five of its last seven games. Kurtis Foster had a pair of assists, while Vincent Lecavalier, Ryan Malone and Martin St. Louis all had one assist. Mike Smith had 20 saves while working on a shutout. His counterpart, Martin Brodeur, wasn't having as good a night having made only four saves. Not knowing when this game will be continued makes for a tough situation in Fantasy. As soon as we know more about the makeup date, we will let you know what happens with the scoring in Fantasy.

    • Bochenski has point streak in AHL

      News: Lightning minor leaguer Brandon Bochenski has totaled two goals and four assists during a five-game point streak for Norfolk of the AHL. He has 13 goals and 18 assists in 39 games this season.
      Analysis: Bochenski has bounced around throughout his pro career and seems to be one of those Quadruple-A players -- too good for the minors, but not good enough for the NHL. He really has no Fantasy value at this time, so feel free to drop him in all formats.
