With the second round now upon us, Adam Hess takes a shift with Sam, John and myself to discuss the playoffs to this point. As always, no subscription is needed for the podcast, and can be grabbed after the jump.
It was only five games ago we lowered the shark cage and let @AnthraxJones snarl and yell and chew on the bars Not much has changed since. Here’s what he had to say then. Nathan MacKinnon is on a 110-point pace, even though he missed a little time. Why has he become Asgardian this season? […]
I liked Hess’s title last night, so I’m going to piggyback off of it. I’m sure he won’t mind. This isn’t the autopsy of the Hawks. We’ll have plenty of time for that come April 9th. Hell, we’ve already been doing it. There will be even more time to speculate about what lies ahead, or […]
vs. RECORDS: Hawks 28-29-8 Ducks 32-21-12 PUCK DROP: 3:00 PM TV: NBCSN Chicago UNDERGROUND DISNEYLAND OVERLORDS: Anaheim Calling After showing an actual pulse yesterday in the third period, after a comeback we hadn’t seen in a very long while, and after an actually stirring win (though signifying nothing), the Hawks reward is to huff it […]

Both of the Western Conference’s games went to overtime last night, and both series were evened at two games a piece as they head back to Dallas and San Jose respectively.
We keep moving along through the river, well to be more apt this underground garbage fire of a preview that is slowly encroaching on nuclear waste, to the forwards of the St. Louis Blues. And once you get past the first line, it gets pretty automaton, but you probably already knew that. It’s a raft […]
None of what comes in this post is going to be much of a surprise to you. After reading us breaking down the entire Ducks team, you probably know where we think this is headed. But thanks to the NHL and their infinitely genius scheduling, we’ve still got time to kill. So let’s look into […]
Time to clean up our preview of the Hawks’ Western Conference Final opponent the Anaheim Ducks. Special Teams Now this is where things could go a bit sideways for the Hawks, and clearly the biggest flashing red light. Just like the Hawks did last round, the Hawks will face the team heading into it with […]
