The Hockey Show - Episode Eighty-Eight

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is going to have some fun with more craziness today! We will wrap up the final two opening round series by dismissing the Tampa Bay Lightning and Philadelphia Flyers from Survivor: NHL Playoffs, and then try to squeeze Round Two's eliminated players in tonight as we have a special guest lined up for next week! We'll talk a little about who that is below, but it's going to be another busy show tonight so buckle up and hold on!

The reason for us pushing the Survivor: NHL Playoffs schedule into tonight is that we're honoured to have an NHL great join us in-studio for a chat about the game. We will welcome former LA King, NY Ranger, and St. Louis Blue Ted Irvine to the show next week, and we'll have a pile of questions for one of the game's most memorable players. He was a tough hombre who played an excellent defensive game, making him invaluable to the Rangers who swapped Real Lemieux and Juha Widing to the Los Angeles Kings to acquire Irvine. We'll talk to Mr. Irvine in-depth about his time in the NHL, his thoughts on today's game, how he got his nickname, and many more topics!

Beans and I will go 3 Rounds Deep next week with Mr. Irvine as well, but tonight we'll focus on a relatively easy topic that could produce some incredible answers. Since Beans and I are both defencemen when we play, we will debate and discuss the players with the best slapshots of all-time. This could produce some pretty good fireworks as Beans has his favorites and I have mine!

If you wanna be a part of 3 Rounds Deep tonight, give us a call during the segment at 204-269-8636 (269-UMFM) and we'll put you on the air! Same rules as always as we can't repeat picks made by others and neither can you, so it will get a little tougher as people start participating. We'll start it off, then open up the phone lines and hit Twitter for everyone else to participate.

Going 3 ROUNDS DEEP tonight: who has the best slapshot of all-time! You know what to do!

Amongst the other topics we'll take a look at tonight, we'll discuss the fall of the Bruins, Wild, and Penguins in Round Two and what the fall-out from each loss could be, we'll talk about the impressive numbers shown by the NCAA in terms of hockey programs and graduation rates, we'll chat about Milan Lucic's comments after Game Seven yesterday, and we'll work in a couple of promotions tonight.

One such promotion? We're giving away movie tickets! while he's avoided us with "work", we're still big on Jared Keeso's rising star. We saw him in Elysium, we're huge fans of his work on Bravo's 19-2, and now you'll get to see him on the big screen as he stars in Godzilla! Jared plays a character only known as "Jump Master", so his role may be small from its description, but there are no small roles in Hollywood! Tonight on The Hockey Show, your cue to call for the tickets will be the very prominent Godzilla roar, so listen closely for your chance to win two tickets to see this new blockbuster that opens tomorrow!

We've got a jam-packed show tonight, so here's how you can participate! First, you gotta listen to the show! Tune us in at 101.5 UMFM on your radio dial in the Winnipeg region, or you can listen live between 5:30pm and 6:30pm CT on your web-enabled device at the UMFM webpage! We're always available via phone while on the air at (204) 269-8636 (269-UMFM), so give us a call whenever you like and to play 3 Rounds Deep! You can tweet us anytime you like by hitting us up at @TeebzHBIC on the Twitter machine. You can post some stuff to Facebook if you use the "Like" feature, and I always have crazy stuff posted there that doesn't make it to the blog or show. You should "Like" that.
