Back of the Net: Bolts By The Bay 8/8/13

Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen! Welcome to this afternoon’s edition of Back of the Net where we take you through all the latest and greatest news and updates from in and around the Bolts Nation, and the world of hockey.

I apologize for the long hiatus in posting Back of the Net. There have been forces out of my control that have kept me from the keys, but hopefully all of that is behind us, and we can resumes business as usual.

We are now only 57 more days away from the official start of the 2013-14 Lightning hockey season! Yes, we are now a Valtteri Filppula (51) and a Sami Salo (6) from the day we have waited so long for.

As you can imagine, there is a ton going on right now, not just in the Bolts Nation, but around the rest of the NHL as well. So…let’s get down to business.

Sit back and relax as we take you through all the latest updates, news, and rumors from not just around the Bolts Nation, but the great, wide world of hockey.
