The final in the 2016 World Cup of Hockey is set! Canada will face…Europe? Interesting. Rachel and Steven discuss the World Cup, Rachel’s visit to Toronto to watch a couple games and experience the atmosphere, and they lament the beautiful creature that was Team North America. Also, NHL training camps have opened, and optimism is high in both the Oilers’ and Flyers’ camps. The preseason begins tonight!
The first round robin games at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey are in the books, and there have been some big surprises. Team Europe, that gang of Old World orphans, shocked the heavily favoured USA, while Canada was especially dominant against the Czech Republic. However, those plucky upstarts on Team North America have already won over the coldest of hearts, blitzing Finland, and making Rachel and Steven very happy on this week’s Hockey Feels.
Season 2 of Hockey Feels is officially here! After a few episodes over the course of the summer, Rachel and Steven are back every week now, starting this week with their preview of the 2016 World Cup of Hockey, and how their beloved Team North America will fare. Also, Steven gushes over the Oilers’ new home Rogers Place, which officially opened to the public this past weekend.
