Today’s Backhand Shelf podcast, which is supposed to be about hockey, was about – get this – actual hockey. We went through and commented on every game, which means we hit every team, all while making completely over-the-top statements like “The Rangers suck.” It was fun. We included:

* The Kings pre-game ceremony (which annoyed me – more on that later)

* The Canucks goaltending situation

* The Blues, man

* The success of the elders

* The Oilers youth

* The Asham/Glass fight

* And much more

  1. I’m a Kings fan and I’m with you on the celebration. If you don’t win it at home, fine, let the team pass the cup around.


    I’m not going to go so far as to blame the ceremony for coming out so flat (as some have), but they didn’t look like they gave a damn about it.

    The Kings can certainly blame he loss on the lack of Kopitar and Mitchell, but they can’t keep that up against Colorado.

  2. Is it bad that “Overreaction Monday” was kinder than I felt about Detroit’s defense? Ericsson stepped on a puck yesterday and is out with injury, and he was one of – if not the – best defenseman on Saturday.

    Johnathan Ericsson!?! And now he’s out!?!

    We are so screwed.
