Rink Report – April 17, 2014

Day two of the playoffs, day two of the Report.  Let’s get this thing going.

I recap the scores of the three playoff games, as well as tidbits (yes, I said tidbits) from each.  I also take a quick look at the four playoff games happening tonight.  And news from Abbotsford, BC.  You heard that right.

Rink Report – April 16, 2014

Welcome to the first Rink Report, a daily podcast catching you up on the news of the NHL, and setting you up with the hockey games of the night.

This is really rough.  I’m not used to podcasting on my own, and I’m doing this for fun and for the experience of it.  I will make mistakes, names, stats, things like that.  I will do my best to correct them on the twitter feed and in the next episode in an errata section.

Heck, I don’t even know if I’ll be able to sustain this.  Let’s just see how it goes.

As ever, this is an independent podcast, and not associated with the NHL or any other media outlets.  All mistakes are my own, unless stated otherwise.

The Rink Episode 64 Part 2: Classic All Over

It’s part two of my talk with Ryan Classic, where we continue our goalie discussion, and talk about Teemu Selanne, the retirement of Chris Chelios and that fine chili he makes, and Ron Tugnutt. Yes, really.

The Rink Episode 53: Tweetcast!

It’s another tweetcast, and I’m joined by a happier Jay Kumar to talk about the Toronto Maple Leafs, and by Justin Goldman of The Goalie Guild to talk about… goalies.  And we have a lot to talk about. It’s a fun episode of The Rink.

The Rink Episode 29A

Another two parter this week.  Eric McErlain joins Tom and I for a preview of the playoffs.  The best part is, I get to stay out of the way for the most part.  Bonus for you.

Part two goes live a little later in the week.

The Rink Episode 8

In this episode, we go a little longer than normal, but it’s worth it.  We are talking to three fantastic bloggers this week:

Alanah from Canucks and Beyond talks with us about the Roberto Luongo shutout streak

Steve Lepore from Puck the Media chats about Versus ratings, and a whole lot more

Earl Sleek of the Battle of California gives us some perspective on Brian Burke stepping down as GM of the Ducks

Plus, Tom and I talk about the news of the week, and we put out the call to you, the listener.  We want you to call and tell us what your hockey weekend is going to look like.  Going to games?  Watching games? Playing games?  What hockey adventures are you going to have this weekend?  Call us at 845-704-RINK (7465) and let us know.  Responces will be put on the podcast.
