Episode 4.20

This week on Episode 4.20 of AFITC, just one Maple Leaf game since we spoke with you last and what a disaster it was. We’ll get you caught up with what happened when the Maple Leafs made their first visit to the XCEL Energy Centre in Minnesota since the 05/06 season.

Later in the Redline Report, we spin through a nearly empty Revolving Door, discuss the All Star Game and relating topics and finish with Quick Hits, today featuring news on a lucky fan in Chicago, Hendrik Zetterberg, Ray Emery, and the future of the current Collective Bargaining Agreement.

In On The Bubble, we check in with Listener Emails from Andre and Aaron, take you through the Junior Hockey Report with news on the St. Michael’s Buzzers last week of action and play you back a sit down interview with Buzzers’ Head Coach Cam Stewart.

To conclude the program, rigamarole justifies why Doug Gilmour deserves to have a banner raised to the rafters at Air Canada Centre, who should be next and then what to expect in terms of honouring players in the upcoming years.

Alex Ovechkin won the shootout skills drill at the All Star Skills competition because he put on a hat with a Canadian flag and wore sunglasses. We’re both wearing hats and sunglasses right now so I guess that make us the best hockey podcast there is. Thanks for coming out people but we’ll take it from here.

Check out the official website of the Central Division and click on Highlight Videos to watch “Where Hockey Began“ a feature with Nick D’Agostino and Dave Stevens of the St. Michael’s Buzzers and Glen McCarron of the Newmarket Hurricanes discussing how their passion for the game of hockey began on backyard rinks.
