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.
The weekend is in full swing. At least for the time being, we have the start of the football season to guide us through the remainder of the NHL offseason.
Another day has come and gone, and therefore has brought us another day closer to the start of hockey season. We are now a mighty Martin St. Louis away from hockey season! That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, we are only 26 days away from the official start of the 2013-14 Tampa Bay Lightning hockey season.
There are so many things to talk about, so let’s get down to business.
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.
