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.
Today, the Tampa Bay Lightning swing the doors to the Tampa Bay Times Forum as they host Evgeni Malkin and the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Bolts are coming off of a three game win streak. Let’s hope that they can keep the momentum going, and send the Pens back home pointless.
