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.
Two days down, 3 more to go before the weekend is here again.
For those of us counting, there is now just 38 more days left until we get our hockey back. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, we are just a Ben Bishop (30) and a Mark Barberio (8) away from the first puck drop of the 2013-14 Tampa Bay Lightning season.
Busy day as usual, so no time like the present to get this party started.
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.
