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.

Alexandar Steen’s OT Goal

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.

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.

Bobrovsky’s Bobble:

Getzlaf takes a slapper to the face:

Abbotsford Breaks Ties with AHL Team (The Globe and Mail)

The Rink Episode 65: Avalanche Blogger Roundtable

After day one of the Colorado Avalanche training camp, I got together with a five hockey fans to talk about the Avalanche, the media, twitter,  and the rest of the league.  It was a really fun conversation, and the only person who swore (and had to be bleeped) was me! So unprofessional. :)

A note about the production: This was the first time I recorded the show with this setup, and the volume levels are a little uneven.  It certainly wasn’t my intention for my voice to be the loudest.  It just worked out that way.  I’ll try and nail it next time I use it.

Please, visit their blogs, follow them on twitter, and enjoy the show.

The panel:

Angelique C. Murray – @Jori5280

Colorado Avalanche Prospects

Ryan Boulding and Johnathan Gebhart – @burgundyblog

The Burgundy Blog

James Kyle – @jqcolorado

Justin Goldman – @TheAvsGuild

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 64 Part 1: Goalie-Go-Round

I was privileged to spend some actual face to face time with Ryan Mance, aka Ryan Classic, to talk goalies (which seem to be the big news lately), and much more. We went long, so this one is split into two parts. Diffidently check out part two.

Quick mention: I said that Peter Budaj and Jose Theodore played in Chicago. It was a mistake, and a slip of the tongue, because we were talking about Chicago. By now, I’m sure you are used to me screwing something up. :-)
