Good morning, 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.
There is only one more day until we cruise on into the weekend. Hopefully, we can all make it through together.
With another day in the books, we are again another day closer to the start of hockey season. We are now just a Martin St. Louis (26) and a Keith Aulie (3) away from the first puck drop of the 2013-14 Tampa Bay Lightning season. That right, ladies and gentlemen…only 29 more days.
It’s time 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.
