Good morning, ladies and gentlemen! Welcome to this this morning’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.
As the weekend winds down, and we stare down the business end of another work week, I hope you can look back at your weekend and know that you made the most of it.
As another day ticks off the calendar, we are again one day closer to the start of hockey! We are just a Ben Bishop (30) and an Alex Killorn (17) away from the first puck drop of the 2013-14 season! That’s right, ladies and gentlemen…just 47 more days.
I know I can’t be the only counter here.
Well, as usual, there is no time like the present to get down to business.
So 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.
