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.

The Rink Episode 51: Eddie Garcia

I was in Anaheim for the Ducks – Leafs game, which I thought the Leafs would lose. Silly me.  The Ducks didn’t show up, but Eddie Garcia from the Puck Podcast did show up. We played a little hockey, and talked for a while about the LA Kings, hockey jerseys, and the California hockey experience.
