This week on the show that has a show this week, it’s a crossover event for the ages, as the ladies of PUCK BUNNIES, AUDREY & CHRISTINA make their RGS debuts. There is so much hockey to catch up on, and we try to touch it all: the Hurricanes’ improv troupe energy, the Blue Jackets pushing all in, why Jay Beagle is beloved in Washington, the Morgan Rielly thing, and why the Pittsburgh Penguins are the most fascinating team to watch as a Vancouver fan. PLUS: Audrey and Christina discuss their experiences with hockey Twitter’s sexist gatekeepers, we run afoul of Islanders and Leafs fans during the Tavares return game, and we revisit the relic of gendered hockey coverage that was CBC’s While The Men Watch.
This week on the show that knows car and cat are only separated by one letter (isn't that neat?), Dalhousie Tigers forward and former WHL beauty JACKSON PLAYFAIR returns to the show for an in-studio hockey spectacular. John is over the moon with the Leafs signing John Tavares, while Stefan wallows in self-pity and Justin finds glimmers of hope in the Canucks' discouraging free agent crop. PLUS: Our Auston Insider reveals what the Leafs moves mean for Matthews, forecasts his dad's future in the game, and goes deep on the one feud that may have ended with Playfair jerseys in the firepit. We talked hockey with Jackson for 100 minutes and could have gone 300 more.
