T-Bone and the Hockey Doggz Podcast: Discussing the Cup Final, the Penguins Demise, and Recent Changes

Here’s our latest effort!  In this gripping episode of the T-bone and the Hockey Doggz Podcast we discuss a little of this:

  • What happened to T-bone and Moonpie’s beloved Pittsburgh Penguins?
  • The Stanley Cup Final and how we got there
  • The NHL Playoffs are clearly the best playoffs of any sport (sorry arena football)
  • Who’s going to be taking the vacant coaching positions in NYC, DAL, and the big Van Van?
  • Colorado is gonna be weird next season
  • Tim Thomas as a boarder patrolman

I must say, it’s a pretty good episode, especially when paired with a couple-a-hundred pounds of trail mix.  As always, feel free to leave your comments below (me).  You can also tweet us @tbonehockeydogs or send us an e-mail at tboneandthehockeydoggz@gmail.com.  WOO!

T-bone and the Hockey Doggz No. 8: Tim Thomas, Trade Talks, Slumpin’ & Streakin’

It’s finally here!  The latest T-bone and the Hockey Doggz podcast!  Recorded last night once again at Huskey’s Hockey Palace, in this episode T-bone and the Hockey Doggz discuss the recent political outbursts from Boston Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas and the team’s subsequent shittyness, the NHL trade deadline on February 27th, and the unveiling of a new segment called “Slumpin’ & Streakin'”.  I tell ya, it was a fun time and T-B&theHDz wanted you to be there, but they couldn’t get a hold of you so they just recorded it and are expecting your comments to come via e-mail in the next few days.  

A 36 Pack!!

The Boston Bruins and the H.U.S.K.E.Y. Method

First off: we still have some beautiful buttons for sale, folks. $30 each or 3/$100. We wore them. Game worn.

Should I say 'boo" or 'Broo-ins'?

Moving on: Sometimes… I swear, guys. *sigh* It’s like the Bruins just want me to hate them. I know what you’re thinking and then saying at your computer/smartphone/T-Bone and the Hockey Doggz E-Reader: ‘That’s crazy, bro. Those dudes don’t know you like that!’

True, true.

But! Don’t take things so literally, guys. And, besides that, I sometimes think that Bruins want me to love them.

Now everybody’s probably spit-taking coffee all over your computer/smartphone/T-Bone and the Hockey Doggz E-Reader and saying ‘what the fuck, bro!? Pick a side! And buy me a new computer!’

So I’ve folded a perforated sheet from a yellow legal pad (hot-dog style) and have created two columns: “pro” and “con”. The “pro” side is where I’ll provide positive commentary about the Boston Bruins, while I can use the “con” portion of the sheet to record all of the team’s shortcomings and foibles. When I complete this diagnostic, I can tally which side is truer and determine what I think. I call this the “Huskey Universal System for [K]alculating Excellent hockeY-teams” (H.U.S.K.E.Y.).

And. Here. We. Go. Continue reading

Freakin’ Weekend, It’s The

daaaaaamn

This is the same face she makes when watching hockey

Feeling that post-holiday ‘pinch’, both as your pants feel tighter and those credit card bills come rolling in? Take solace in the fact that hockey is there for you, ever ready to assuage all your worries, solve all of your problems, and alienate you from most of mainstream society (which got you into this ‘pinch’ mess in the first place). Put your driver’s license in your shoe, cuz who knows where you’re gonna wake up after this freakin’ weekend… Continue reading

Winnipeg Jets – Streak Killerz

During the month of November, the Boston Bruins were on what some would call a “serious tear”, decimating everyone in their path.  In 13 games they were 12-0-1 and had outscored their opponents 57-25.  After winning their first two games in December, the Bruins rolled into Winnipeg’s MTS Cent[er] on December 6th with a pretty good chance to increase the number in the W column against what once was the “Mighty Thrash”.

The MTS Cent[er] is quickly becoming one of the toughest places to play in the league for a visiting team.  At home last season the Thrashers were 17-17-7.  The Jets only need 5 more wins to meet that, and that’s just through 36 games.

Every night Bryan Little and Andrew Ladd each score a goal, this Little Lad hides a pot-o-gold in the MTS Centre

With leading scorer Tyler “Sleepy” Seguin out and Tuuka Rask making the start,the Bruins were still the definite favorite to beat the Jets to everyone outside of The Keysone Province.  However, Ondrej Pavelec saved 39 of 40 shots, Bryan Little and Andrew Ladd each had a goal, and the only goal scorer for the defending champs was Shawn Thornton.  Streak killed.

One week later on December 13th,  the league leading Minnesota Wild showed up to the MTS Cent[er] in the midst of a 7 game win streak.  It was likely that the Wild would make the Fly Boys (? Does that work? Is that already a nickname for the Flyers?) their 8th in a row.  Pavelec gave up one, saved 34, Zach Bogosian got his first and Bryan Little got another in a streak-ending 2-1 win for the Ice Mans.

Last night, the Mavericks (?  One of these will work, trust me) proved that they could not only kill long streaks at home, but they could take their act on the road.  The Colorado Avalanche came into the game last night having won 5 in a row and 8 at home.  Guess what happened…yeah, streak killed. The final score of this one was 4-1 which just proves that the Jets are getting better at this whole thing.

I can see a similarity.

Why is this happening?  What is aligned in the cosmos that makes sure teams can’t keep their streaks alive against the Airplanes (pretty good right?)?  I don’t have a clue, but I can’t wait to see if they can keep doing it.  If they can do it a few more times, they could start getting in the heads of the opposing players and streaking teams will fear the Turbines.

Fighting A Bear Has Never Been Easy

Yeah, it’s been a highly-entertaining NHL season so far. We’ve had our share of surprises and there’s still plenty more hockey to play yet. But let’s be real, gang: the Eastern Conference playoff bracket is shaping up to be a bit of a stinker. I mean, the Boston Bruins are looking redoubtable, indomitable, indefatigable, and sometimes all three at the exact same time. Now they’re just getting all smug about it. And to make matters worse, a lot of the East’s big doggz, shining stars, and rude dudes with ‘tudes are on the shelf  like your grandma’s tchochkes. While the teams in the Western US and Canada probably know a thing or two about killing bears, the EST boys are in a heap of trouble. Unless, of course, they do exactly as I say: Continue reading

It’s That Freakin’ Weekend-Time!

Seven days ago, nobody would have guessed that it’d be the weekend all over again. But here we are! Rather than sit around and cry about it, I decided to make a difference and fill you in on what’s going on out there. And by ‘out there’ I mean in your house and/or in front of a television. So instead of dealing with all the holiday hustle (not to mention that bustling bullshit that everybody’s gotten into lately) why don’t you get your head straight with some haaaaaaaaaaaawwwwkkeeeeeeeeey?

Note: This weeks edition of “It’s the Freakin’ Weekend” has been set to the tune of Gary Glitter’s “Rock and Roll (Part Two): Continue reading
