The Columbus Blue Jackets are the hottest team in hockey, tearing their way back to playoff contention. We’ll talk about this unreal run the team has put together behind Latvian star rookie Elvis Merzlikins, the huge returns of Cam Atkinson and Oliver Bjorkstrand, and the debut of the other Latvian goalie. We also discuss the Cleveland Monsters’ rough road swing and how their stars have been developing down on the farm.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • How much do we love Elvis?
  • Why we do love him so much?
  • How important were Cam and Bjorkstrand last week?
  • How about Matiss Kivlenieks?
  • Who deserves credit for the goaltending success?
  • How have the callups affected the Cleveland Monsters?
  • How have the top prospects played lately in Cleveland?

...plus a lot more.

We discuss naturalstattrick.com and Greg Wyshynski’s standings reform exercise in this episode.

Our theme music is the song “Green Eyes,” by Angela Perley and the Howlin’ Moons off of their album “Homemade Vision.” Angela’s newest album is called “4:30” and you should listen to it! Go check her out at angelaperley.com.
