Welcome back listeners!

In this week’s episode we return to our three period format.

1st Period: We discuss the Flames performance on draft day. They made 4 picks, including 4 forwards and a goalie. We give our thoughts on the picks and the rumours that were floating around regarding the Flames goaltending options.

We hope you enjoy it!

Episode 34 – Singing the Blues in Beantown

Hey listeners! The season has come to a close and an NHL Stanley Cup Champion has been determined. Congratulations to the St. Louis Blues who played one of the most unpredictable and remarkable seasons in ages. Last place in January to first place in June!

We recorded this episode hot on the heels of game 7, so we obviously had a lot to say about the Stanley Cup Final. We break down the series, the game, and talk about the Conn Smythe Trophy.

In our next segment, we revisit the NHL awards nominees and give our final picks for the winners. This was a really fun episode to record and we hope you enjoy it.

Til next time.

Episode 33 – David vs Goliath

Welcome back listeners!

This week we really focus in on the Stanley Cup Final and discuss how the series is going. Currently at 2-2, it is still anyone’s series. The health of the Boston Bruins is becoming an issue, particularly with Zdeno Chara going down with what has been reported in some places as a broken jaw.

We talk about the top performers on the Blues such as Ryan O’Reilly, Alex Pietrangelo and Vladimir Tarasenko.

Finally, we move on to some news and notes around the league including the impending UFA decision by Erik Karlsson and the Oilers hiring a new coach who seems a lot like the last coach.

Enjoy!

Episode 32 – The Stanley Cup Finals Begin as the World Hockey Champions Come to an End

Hey Listeners! This week we break down the World Men’s Hockey Championship. Finland beat Canada 3-1 in a frustrating gold medal final, while Russia won what I think was probably a disappointing bronze given the quality of the roster they brought to the tournament.

We talk about the performance of Flames players and complain about the Oilers as is our way.

We also talk about game 1 of the SCF, which the Bruins were able to win to gain a 1-0 series lead. Boston started slow after their long break, but once they got in gear they were easily the better team. The battle is already raging with a ton of physical play and after the whistle scrums.

Enjoy the episode and thanks for listening!
