Back of the Net - March 19th

Good evening, 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.

The Tampa Bay Lightning is coming off of a big momentum builder as they closed out their home stand at the Tampa Bay Times Forum with a win over the Vancouver Canucks.

Tonight, the Bolts get back to business as they hit the road; their first stop, the Air Canada Centre where they will face off with Phil Kessel and the Toronto Maple Leafs in what some would consider a must-win game for the Bolts.

While we wait for all the action to get started tonight, let’s take a look at what else is going on around the National Hockey League today.
