The Daily Bolt – Tampa Bay Lightning Hockey Headlines

Good evening, Bolts Nation! Welcome to today’s edition of The Daily Bolt where we bring you all the latest and greatest news and updates from not just here in the Bolts Nation, but around the entire world of hockey.

As we tick yet another day off of what seems like an endless calendar, we find ourselves one day closer to the official beginning of the 2014-15 Tampa Bay Lightning Hockey Season.

As it stands now, there are just 42 days between now and the Lightning Home Opener. This means that in under a month and a half, we will finally be watching as the puck drops for the very first time at the Tampa Bay Times Forum this season.

The Lightning has a lot to look forward to this season, so anticipation is at an all-time high.

While we wait (im)patiently for the new season to start, let’s take a look at what else is going on around the National Hockey League today.
