The Hockey Show - Episode 135

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back tonight with a couple of guests, some goodbyes, playoff chatter, and a song that will be played over Manitoba's radio waves for the first time! I'm actually excited that we have the exclusive to this new song by an emerging artist, so you'll hear that off the top while we close out with one of this artist's songs that put her on the map. Our two guests are coming in to promote an upcoming event, and we'll talk about the four games last night on the NHL Stanley Cup Playoff schedule, the four games scheduled for tonight, and who we're predicting to see in the next round!

Kevin and Vin will be in-studio tonight as they are gearing up for the 2015 edition of the Re/Max Cup taking place here on May 22-24 at the Glenwood Community Center in Winnipeg! This is one of the better ball hockey tournaments in this great nation, and they always have incredible prizes for fans and players! Kevin and Vin will discuss the tournament, how many teams are signed up, who may challenge for the Re/Max Cup, and much more. Reportedly, there may still be a few spots available if you're interested! Find out tonight!

We'll also wish Columbus a fare-thee-well tonight as she'll be joining us for her last show as she heads home to the USofA for the summer. We'll keep in touch with her as she prepares for a world-wide tour next year as she continues her studies in South Korea! We'll also share in a fare-thee-well for Aaron Sabasch, the host of Straight Ahead, who has the time slot right before us on UMFM. Aaron's final show is tonight, so we'll send him off by talking about his beloved Calgary Flames with him after they downed the Vancouver Canucks last night in a great game. We'll miss you both, but we'll keep in touch!

We'll also toss in our predictions for each of the Stanley Cup Playoff series. We'll chat about no further discipline to PK Subban and whether that's the right call. We'll talk about goalies and their impact on series as Scott Darling pushed the Blackhawks past the Predators last night after putting up a wall through nearly four periods. We'll definitely talk about what the Jets need to do to defeat the Ducks. And finally, I have an announcement for Jets fans to encourage them to come out and support the team!

We have another big show tonight and the phones will be open for Whiteout Power! Buzz us at 204-269-UMFM (204-269-8636) and we'll put your comments about the Jets on the air! Of course, we will be live on 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! You can tweet me anytime you like by hitting me up at @TeebzHBIC on Twitter. 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. Tonight we get ready for the first Whiteout since 1996!
