With Steven at yet another Doctor Who-related gathering (this time in Chicagoland), Rachel again provides the interesting discussion points in this episode of Hockey Feels, namely the state of beat writing and reporting in today’s NHL. But there’s still time for Stadium Series talk, Connor McDavid return dates, and more!
Rachel and Steven are back in their proper places this week, with the Doctor Who-related globetrotting behind them (for now). And good thing too as there are two notable topics that feature during this week’s episode – the change in format to the upcoming NHL All-Star Game, as well as all the wacky (and, occasionally, smart) ideas people are coming up with in order to increase scoring in the NHL.
A very special episode of Hockey Feels! Steven and Rachel record in person at Long Island Who, a Doctor Who convention and, in keeping with the theme of the world’s longest running science fiction programme, your intrepid hosts take time to compare NHL players of past and present to all the Doctors – with amusing results! Also, talk of injuries, advanced stats, and bobbleheads flesh out this week’s charming episode. Enjoy!
An awful week for both Steven and Rachel’s teams this past week. The Oilers and Flyers met each other in NHL action on November 3, and while the Oilers escaped with a 4-2 win, they lost superstar Connor McDavid for the foreseeable future with a broken clavicle. Also, the Flyers endured a six-game losing streak before finally snapping it with a win over the weekend. Despite these setbacks, Steven and Rachel talk about defining moments of their hockey fandom in order to cheer themselves up.
An extra special episode of Hockey Feels this week! Steven is on vacation in the UK for the next couple weeks, so he and Rachel invited Patrick Smyth, host of The View From The Bridge, a podcast about the Belfast Giants of the EIHL! The topics range from the history of hockey in Great Britain to where the game is going in the future. A great chat about hockey across the pond that we hope you enjoy.
