Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen! Welcome to today’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.
For most of us, the work day is about to come to an end. Hopefully, the day has been kind to you. If not, just remember there is only one more day standing between you and the weekend.
Speaking of another day, we can now mark another day off of the calendar, as we are now just a Dana Tyrell (42) plus one to the start of hockey season. That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, only 43 days remain between now and the official start of the 2013-14 Tampa Bay Lightning season!
It has been another busy day in the world of hockey, so let’s get down to business straight away.
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.
