The Hockey Show - Episode 327

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, returns tonight after all the festive dinners and celebrations have been put to rest. I hope the time spent with friends and family while eating some delicious food and opening unique gifts was as memorable as can be as Beans and I roll back into the studio tonight with another episode! You're probably sick of hearing Andy Williams' "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" by now and I'm pretty sure you never want to hear Pitbull's "Don't Stop the Party" ever again after Canada's drubbing of Denmark last night, but we have hockey to discuss and we'll look at the two biggest tournaments happening right now!

Let's be honest here for a second when I say that the World Junior Championship preliminary games are, for the most part, a joke. With the exception of the New Year's Eve game for Canada, should anyone be shocked that Canada has a fluff schedule to start this tournament like they do every year? In saying that, I spend most of this week focusing on the Spengler Cup where each win and loss carry some weight when determining when and who each team will play in the medal round. Tonight, Beans and I will go over some of the Spengler Cup information from the past two days, try to figure out why Zach Fucale's performance at this tournament never translates into chances in North America, and exactly who Canada will likely face in the semi-final. We'll also look at the World Junior Championship results from the first day-and-a-half, get everyone set for the Jets and Flames tonight as the two Western Conference division leaders clash, and we'll have a quick discussion about the Hurricanes wearing the colours of the Whalers. I also believe I said I'd be doing a giveaway tonight for some shwag, so make sure you tune in at 5:30pm CT!

You might be wondering where the blurb about the UMFM app has gone. I'm going on record to say you can still use it, but the new UMFM website will fill the needs of our listeners because the new online streaming player is pretty awesome. If you're using an Apple device, the player doesn't seem to like Safari, but we highly recommend you use the TuneIn app found on the App Store. The UMFM app will currently work for you, but there's some work being done to realign it with UMFM's new website, so it may go silent soon. If it does, TuneIn. It's a solid app.

I'm changing up the social media portion as well. I'm losing faith in Facebook, so that option will slowly be allowed to drift off into the horizon. However, the other options still work! Email all show questions and comments to! Tweet me anytime with questions you may have by hitting me up at @TeebzHBIC on Twitter! We're here to listen to you, so make your voice heard!

Tonight, Teebz and Beans go over the Spengler Cup, the World Junior Championship, the battle of the NHL division leaders, why the Hurricanes should never be associated with the Whalers, and much more only on The Hockey Show found exclusively on 101.5 UMFM, on the UMFM app, on the web stream!
