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.

Happy Friday, Bolts fans! I hope everyone has tremendous plans ahead of them for the weekend; at the very least, one that doesn’t have you working too hard. I mean, come on…there is a game tomorrow.

We are exactly one week away from the official start of the season! That’s right, ladies and gentlemen…only a Radko Gudas away from the first official puck drop of the 2013-14 Tampa Bay Lightning hockey season!

Furthermore, we are only 5 days away from learning who the new captain of the Tampa Bay Lightning will be. Surely, everyone has their opinions on who  that should be, but that is another story for another day.

I think it’s time to get down to business here.

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.
