Good afternoon, 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 has struggled to put points on the board ever since clinching their spot in the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

If the Lightning want to find themselves in a good position when the post season begins, they are going to have to dig deep and find a way to bring home points in the remaining four games.

The first of which is tomorrow night against the Phil Kessel and the Toronto Maple Leafs.

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