Rink Report – April 21, 2014

A quick update today, as I have to fly out of Atlanta today.  Last night’s games, tonight’s games, and a bit on Brent Seabrook’s punishment from the league.

Rink Report – April 18, 2014

Recapping the games from last night, and setting up the three games happening tonight.

No news to report today, much like April 18, 1930 for the BBC.  We, unlike the BBC, will not play piano music instead.

Paul Stastny ties the game

And then, Paul Statstny wins the game, from almost the same exact place on the ice.

Also, a Systems Analyst post from Justin Bourne on the game winner by Montreal against the Lightning.  I love these posts.

The Rink Episode 68: Why No Jagr?

For episode 68, you would think the Jaromir Jagr would come up once, but he wasn’t the story when it came to the Flyers.  James O’Brien and I talk about Pronger and the impact his injury may have on visors, as well as what is going on in this crazy league, where the Stars are on top, the Leafs are a playoff team, and one of the best goalies in the league just isn’t good enough for some people.

The Rink Episode 62: Time for a Tweetcast

It’s time for a tweetcast, where I poll twitter (you can follow The Rink at @rinkpodcast, or follow me at @tapeleg), and see who wants to talk hockey on the podcast.

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 50: Around the Rinks

It’s a bit of a milestone for The Rink. Episode 50 finds Tom and I talking about our favorite teams, Tom’s night out, and plenty of other stuff, including the Bruins solving problems, and the NHLPA having a hard time solving theirs.

The Rink Episode 46: Return of Tom

With the summer over, Tom Luongo makes his glorious return from off season hibernation, and has a few things on his mind.  We talk about preseason hits, The Great One becoming the missing one, and the NHLPA. Plus a whole lot more.

As promised, here is the Milwaukee Admirals 3rd jersey. If it weren’t a RBK EDGE jersey, I would buy one in a heartbeat.

A quick note about the production: Thanks to the great state of Alaska, there is no good internet to be found. I can’t stream anything, I can’t use Skype, nothing. Tom and I had to talk on our cellphones, and record the audio of our mics separately. So if things sound strange, it’s because we weren’t using our normal recording process.
