For some reason, Sean and Zach are back already with another quarantine edition of the pod. It’s time to revisit the Montreal Canadiens’ 2010 run to the Eastern Conference final – aka The Halak Playoffs. Plus, Zach pitches a dumb tournament idea, TV Show & Book Recommendations You Didn’t Ask For, a nod to The EGG Line, corrections, and some other stuff, too.
No hockey? No problem! (Okay, maybe some problems). The gents return to talk about how they’ve been filling their sports-less lives and review all the discourse around the no games sports world today. Plus “kind of reviews” of Gladiator, Hell or High Water, Stripes, the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Moneyball, The Town, Rounders, Groundhog Day, The Sandlot, The Natural, Hoosiers, The Last Dance documentary, The Rocket, Goon, Wayne Gretzky’s acting skills, Training Day, Good Boys, Everybody Wants Some!!, The Godfather III, Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood, Ronin and Chef.
It’s a very special crossover episode as Zach joins the gang from The Nosebleeds Podcast to look over everything that happened at this year’s NHL trade deadline.
And just like that the gents have wandered back into the pod pod for another episode to talk Ilya Kovalchuk, the Habs potential trade deadline action, Nick Suzuki, Ovechkin potentially catching on Gretzky and imagining what the XFL would look like if it were for hockey. Plus, a new bit called Beating the Dead Horse.
The gents are finally back for another episode of the big pod with a look back at the past decade of your Montreal Canadiens, including the All Decade Team, a year-by-year look back, What We Were Most Wrong About, and the Top Five Moments of the Decade. Plus, a Roster Report Card for the season to date and alligators in the streets of Montreal!
The Habs just never beat the Sharks. Even when your Montreal Canadiens outshoot them 37-23 as was the case on Thursday night at the Bell Centre. Evander Kane was a monster in this one, unfortunately.
This past weekend’s afternoon slate of games was a microcosm of how the Habs season has gone so far, so it should come as no surprise they won one and lost one, though who they beat and who downed them was surprising.
