The Hockey Show - Episode Ninety-Two

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back tonight with another show filled with hockey goodness! I'm a big fan of having guests on the show, and tonight we'll feature up to seven people in-studio to chat some puck! Yes, you read that correctly - SEVEN! This is an unprecedented move for The Hockey Show. When would we ever squeeze seven people into the studio during the hockey season? Um, never? Let's get this moving then!

Tonight, The Hockey Show is proud to welcome back the man behind the Re/Max Cup ball hockey tournament, Mr. Kevin Wilson! Kevin will be joined by as many as six players from the tournament as they come into the studio to talk about this year's tournament, past tournaments, the future of the tournament, their teams, and a pile of hockey as we run them through the paces! This should be a great setup for everyone as it really will give you an idea of the passion that these men put into this tournament not only as players but as stakeholders in terms of being representatives of the tournament and their respective teams. I'm psyched to have these seven men in tonight, and we'll talk some ball hockey for a while!

We'll also get all those who are in-studio tonight to participate in our weekly 3 Rounds Deep segment! Tonight, the topic will be a fairly easy one as we'll have to move fast with nine people possibly making picks. All you have to do to participate on tonight's 3 Rounds Deep segment is name the any NHL player you would hate to see your team play against but would love to have on your team! This should be a fun one as there are lots of guys that were loathed by every team they weren't on, but loved by teammates. This should be a fun topic to hammer through, so think of some names to go 3 Rounds Deep on tonight!

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. If you want to toss some names in electronically, the Twitter link is below where you can go 3 Rounds Deep!

Going 3 ROUNDS DEEP tonight: NHL players you hate to see your team against, but would love seeing on your team!

We'll also talk about the Stanley Cup Final tonight with the gents, and how the New York Rangers lived to play another day after a clump of snow jumped atop the leaderboard for the Rangers in the Conn Smythe Trophy sweepstakes.
Along with the Stanley Cup Final, we'll also discuss the Calder Cup Final between the Texas Stars and the St. John's IceCaps. If you missed last night's game - I didn't! - the Stars won 2-1 in overtime on a Travis Morin goal. The IceCaps looked like they had won after a Josh Lunden goal earlier in overtime, but the goal was disallowed after the officials had thought that Cristopher Nilstorp had covered the puck with his glove. Granted, Adam Lowry did poke the puck loose before Lunden fired it into the open net, but the end result is that the goal was disallowed, Morin scored minutes later, and the Stars lead 2-1 in the Calder Cup Final!

We're going to have fun tonight on the show, so please 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'll be available via phone at (204) 269-8636 (269-UMFM), so give us a call and play 3 Rounds Deep or share your thoughts on any of the topics we cover! You can tweet us anytime you like by hitting us up at @TeebzHBIC on the Twitter machine. You can also 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. In short, there are lots of ways to get a hold of us! Give us a listen, and enjoy the show!
