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 Game Day, everyone! Today, the Tampa Bay Lightning start yet another back-to-back this week; our fourth game so far this week to be exact.
The puck drops at an early 2:00 p.m. start time today, so make sure you are ready early. Also, if you are heading out to the game today, make sure that you leave a little early. Traffic heading into the Forum is going to be a little insane with the Gasparilla festivities going on in downtown Tampa.
While we wait on today’s game to start, let’s take a look at what is going on around the National Hockey League today.
