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.
It’s game day again! Today, our Tampa Bay Lightning head into Estero, FL to take on the Florida Panthers for the second time this preseason. Let’s hope that the Lightning can get past their loss to Nashville, and put another notch in the win column.
As things stand now, we are only a Mark Barberio away from the start of hockey season! That’s right ladies and gentlemen…just 8 more days until the first official puck drop of the 2013-14 Tampa Bay Lightning season!
Let’s get things started here, shall we?
