The Hockey Show - Episode Fifty-Eight

The Hockey Show hits the airwaves again tonight at 5:30pm CT on 101.5 UMFM, and we have a show packed with all sorts of hockey goodness! There will be the obligatory NHL chatter that we do, including previews of the Blues visiting the Jets on Friday and we'll be keeping our eyes on the Boston-Florida game where Tuukka Rask and the Bruins square off against Tim Thomas and the Panthers! The Russian Roundup will happen again as we update everyone on the KHL and Swedish Elite League players we're tracking. And we'll certainly talk a little more about the Pledge-O-Rama "Pledge Your Prize" show and the NHL '94 tournament that night.

Beans and I will also be talking a little international hockey as the Canadian and American women's teams tangle again after the brawl on Monday. We'll talk about who was responsible, why the fight was good for women's hockey, what it all means in the grand scheme of things between these two teams, and how it may affect future games. With the game between Canada and the US being played tonight in Quebec, it could be another night with fireworks if this donnybrook carries over.

We'll also touch on Patrick Kaleta's ten-game vacation for his stupidity, Max Lapierre's impending break away from the game for his hit on Dan Boyle, the unrealistic potential for the undefeated Avalanche meeting the undefeated Sharks on December 23, the Bisons men's and women's teams results and upcoming games, and a pile of other stuff that we'll work on trying to cram into the sixty minutes. Phew!

Please join us at 5:30pm CT on 101.5 UMFM. If you can't swing that time, that's cool too as I'll post the episode on HBIC Radio by Friday morning for your listening pleasure. The podcast will also go up Thursday night, so you can download and listen to it when you like. As always, your phone calls are welcome at 204-269-UMFM (269-8636) and I'll be taking tweets at @TeebzHBIC!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
