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 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 49: A New Hope?

This week on The Rink, everything is coming up bananacakes, as both Tom and I are having stellar starts to the season. But the Avs and Sabres aren’t the only things on our minds. Tom and I talk about the bottom end of the spectrum, which includes the Leafs, Red Wings, and Canucks, and we even delve into the dreaded trap. Enjoy.

Puck Daddy post on Chris Chelios.

The Rink Episode 44: All Things Russian

I am honored to be joined by Dmitry Chesnokov, best known in North America for his interviews and writing on Puck Daddy.  Dmitry is what I consider the the King of Russian hockey, and is here to remind me of how little I really know about the KHL, Russian players and the hockey culture of Russia.

The Rink Episode 38

I’m flying solo this week, and that means I get to talk about what I want to.  The Stanley Cup has been handed out and the season is over, but there is still plenty of news in the NHL and around the minor leagues.
