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.
We are just one day removed from the weekend. I hope everyone makes it through the work week mostly unscathed.
As most you already know, they are putting in the ice at the Tampa Bay Times Forum today. How exciting is that? We are now only a Martin St. Louis (26) and a Mike Angelidis (10) away from hockey season! That’s right ladies and gentlemen, just 36 days from now, the puck will drop for the first time in the 2013-14 Tampa Bay Lightning hockey season!
The time to get down to business is at hand. 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.
