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.
Briefly catching up on last night’s playoff action, and setting up the string of games for today.
Brent Seabrook’s hit on David Backes:
Nathan MacKinnon undresses the Wild defense (video via Puck Daddy):
A quick recap of yesterday’s games, and setting up todays. A few news items as well. This one is less than two minutes long. Enjoy.
Joel Quenneville makes a lewd gesture.
Milan Lucic speaks below the belt.
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.
Partick Kane freezes Ryan Miller
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.
Getzlaf takes a slapper to the face:

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.
Ben Bishop’s injury:
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.
K oc C:
(sorry, K had some problems with her phone. I did my best to minimize the noise, but it’s still there)
The Rink takes a look at the Bettman state of the game address, the new guys hired by the Dallas Stars and Montreal Canadiens, and yes, even the Stanley Cup finals.
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.
