Slewfoot 6.16 – A Wild Blue Jacket Streak

On this, our last show of 2016, we chat about the Minnesota Wild and Columbus Blue Jacket winning streaks! They have been playing very good hockey and have a combined 26 game winning streak – something that hasn’t been done in quite some time! Look out New Year’s Eve, someone’s streak will come to an end that night as they play each other in Minnesota. Who will it be? The Wild or the now first place Blue Jackets?

We also discuss what injuries occurred in the past few weeks, and we spend some time covering the World Junior Championships and some of the performances from the first few days of the tournament. We look at some of the top performances as well as few disappointments.

We end the show by giving you our top 5 moments of 2016, surprisingly, Dave’s number one has to do with a surprising first place team, while Fred’s has to do with a fateful day and a trade back in June.

Slewfoot 6.14 – No Peace on Earth or Goodwill Towards Men

This Episode of the Slewfoot Hockey Show, we are getting ready for the holidays but there wasn’t Peace on Earth or Goodwill Towards Men this week in the NHL! It was downright nasty!

Slewfoot 6.13 – Firing the Coach

This Episode of the Slewfoot Hockey Show, we discuss the firing of Florida panther Head Coach Gerard Gallant – a smart move by Florida? We think not…

We also chat about why teams do not like travelling to the West Coast to face Anaheim, San Jose and LA – specifically the Montreal Canadiens. What makes it so difficult? Why do teams have difficulty playing there?

We discuss the continued success that the Rookies are having this season and the impact they are having on the NHL. From Laine, to Matthews, Marner, McDavid and more, the youngsters are having fantastic seasons!

We find out who has jumped on board the injury train, and we finish off the show by playing a new game – “Real Stat or Forget That” – a game where we present real life stats, true or made up, we have to guess what they are!
