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)

Abbotsford Heat to leave, city to pay $5.5 million to end deal (Chilliwack Progress)

Rink Report – April 16, 2014

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:

The Rink Episode 11

This week, Tom and I take a piece out of Sean Avery (sorry, but we had to), talk about the Coyotes, Thrashers,and Lightning.  Plus, a special bonus feature at the end of the podcast.  You want to stick around.

In this episode, we referenced a few blog posts.  Here are the Links:

Puck Daddy on the Coyotes.

Eric McErlain talks to a woman who had a Sean Avery encounter.

The Rink Episode 8

In this episode, we go a little longer than normal, but it’s worth it.  We are talking to three fantastic bloggers this week:

Alanah from Canucks and Beyond talks with us about the Roberto Luongo shutout streak

Steve Lepore from Puck the Media chats about Versus ratings, and a whole lot more

Earl Sleek of the Battle of California gives us some perspective on Brian Burke stepping down as GM of the Ducks

Plus, Tom and I talk about the news of the week, and we put out the call to you, the listener.  We want you to call and tell us what your hockey weekend is going to look like.  Going to games?  Watching games? Playing games?  What hockey adventures are you going to have this weekend?  Call us at 845-704-RINK (7465) and let us know.  Responces will be put on the podcast.
