Back of the Net: Bolts By The Bay 9/25/13

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.

Here we are at Wednesday or as I like to call it, the day in between games this week. Tomorrow, we head to Estero for a rematch with our in-state rival Florida Panthers. Hopefully, we can either keep our penalties in check, or step up on our Penalty Kill so that we don’t end up in such a close game as we did in our 5-4 shootout win on Saturday.

We are now just a Tyler Johnson away from the start of hockey season! That’s right, Bolts fans…we are only 9 days from the Bolts storming into the TD Garden and kicking off the season against the Boston Bruins!

Ok, ladies and gentlemen…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.
