Ahead this week on AFITC, the Leafs conclude a busy week with losses to the Phoenix Coyotes and Calgary Flames but not before equaling their season high win streak of four games with victories over the Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks earlier in the week. We’ll take you through those games to begin the Redline Report. James Reimer and Mike Brown up for discussion as well before Quick Hits looks at whether or not Ron Wilson’s little cash incentive in San Jose was such a bad thing.
Back Checking gets lots of good Listener Contributions onto the show from Twitter and Facebook as well as a great email from Aaron Balsillie. The acquisition of Fabian Brunnstrom and the continuing epidemic of head shots in the NHL, two points that Aaron touches on in his email, are also up for discussion in this segment.
Following that, the Junior Hockey Report comes your way with an update on one St. Michael’s Buzzers game from the past week. Finally, the Gong Banger’s off again this week so instead we welcome Matt Reiter of “Matt’s Musings” to the show to talk all things Leaf.
To wrap the program, rigamarole focuses on one of the most painfully stupid things in the NHL. Stick around, lots coming your way on Episode 6.17 of AFITC.
