The NHL announced the outdoor games for next season, and because Bryan has no problems rubbing salt in the open wound of Bacon, they discuss the recent Winter Classic, which the Chicago Blackhawks lost to the Boston Bruins. The Executive office of the Dallas Stars had some colorful choice words for some of their players, and the NHL also announced the All-Star Rosters for this year’s game, but one Superstar opts not to go! Find out who!
Goaltender Martin Ouellette joins to talk about his career and his time with the Orlando Solar Bears. The Tampa Bay Lightning have won 7 in a row…and oh…they’re getting their All-Star Goaltender back. Jonathan Toews gets his 700th point in the NHL, and Bacon gets his time to talk Hawks. And then there’s Weezer at the Winter Classic, but Bryan isn’t happy about it.
Martin Ouellette, goaltender with the Orlando Solar Bears, returns to the team after being called up to Syracuse and gets his 100th pro win! Marty joins Bryan and Bacon to talk about reaching career milestones, his reasoning to opt for playing College Hockey over Juniors in Canada, and he also shares some insight into his last season in Florida, one where he played in Game 7 of the Kelly Cup Finals.
What’s there to say about the Tampa Bay Lightning? They’re big and strong, have won 7 in a row…and oh…they’re getting their All-Star Goaltender back. Bryan and Bacon discuss what’s next for the team and what the effect of Andrei Vasilevskiy returning has. Louie Domingue was the NHL’s 2nd star of the week and there is NO discussion about the New York Rangers visit to Tampa recently.
Jonathan Toews gets his 700th point in the NHL, and we’ll celebrate by digging deep into the fanhood of our own Bacon. Which of his beloved Blackhawks is more important in his eyes, Toews or Kane? Weezer has been selected as the entertainment at the Winter Classic on New Years Day. Bryan isn’t happy with this decision. The St. Louis Blues, Edmonton Oilers and much more!

The Tampa Bay Lightning are enjoying a 4-0 record since our last show, and it seems Bryan may have found the key to the Lightning success this season so far! The Bolts are in the drivers seat through the first part of the season, but as the year is set to turn soon, the Playoffs grow closer, and the team has to be ready for a major benchmark…the Trade Deadline. Bryan and Bacon discuss what the team could plan to do in late February.
The NHL announced expansion to Seattle, bringing the league to 32 teams. Bryan gives Bacon some history on the Hockey “Scene” in Seattle and the guys ponder some names for the team. One team will be the beneficiary of some difficult years ahead because of the expansion, and what the rivalry situation will be for the divisions after re-configuring. William Nylander got signed, sealed and delivered in time to join the Leafs this season, but Bryan has a serious question for the Maple Leafs. Quick hits, and more!
Orlando Solar Bears goaltender Corbin Boes talks about his young Pro Hockey career, and whether playing against former teammates offers an advantage to either player. The Bolts have 2 scorers in the Top 10 in the NHL points stats, and Bacon called it! Braydon Point and Nikita Kucherov lead the way for the Lightning, while the team plays goalie shuffle with their supporting cast as they await the return of Andrei Vasilevskiy. The Buffalo Sabres are incredibly good right now. Bryan loves it, Bacon…does not.
