    Soaking In The Playoffs

    Soaking In The Playoffs

    Again at full strength, we're back for another episode -- one we've been looking forward to for a long time. It's playoff time! Temperature check: how are the nerves going into the tourny? We talk lines, we talk bottom six, we talk about how the Boston Bruins did not give even half a shit about the last two games, and we of course talk about the Toronto Maple Leafs. Also, VOICEMAILS! TIME TRAVEL! UTAH! GET IN!

    Toaster Bath!

    Toaster Bath!

    Thomas bailed and the kids are running the show. Andrew and Ian discuss process over results; 9 game stretch against all playoff teams: 5-4-0... absolute stinker against Carolina notwithstanding. What are you taking from the totality of this run? Are we past the point of “let Swayman play out of it” and having Ullmark in pen GM1? Are you ready to declare the lineup for GM1? Plus: 7th player award, Torts torting, and the shitstorm that is the Arizona Coyotes. GET IN.

    Older Than Dyck

    Older Than Dyck

    Full roster for this episode, and Thomas is.. optimistic? Ullmark has pulled away as the number one heading into the playoffs, but will they ride him or are we still looking at a tandem in round one? We also discuss who sits and who stays for the defense when the time comes. Is Lohrie better off in Providence for the AHL playoffs? (spoiler, no he is not). PLUS: the Bruins sign a handful of college players, Conor McDavid inches closer to 100 assists on the season, George Parros meal preps, and your voicemails! GET IN.

    Ian Lives

    Ian Lives

    Low Qual returns from Thailand, the Boston Bruins hit a skid and still clinch, and the discord is becoming all powerful. Andrew and Ian kick off the show and cover much ground, pay some bills, and wait in agony to see if Thomas makes it home in time to join the pod and share some voicemails. GET IN.

    The Van Is Rolling Again

    The Van Is Rolling Again

    Thomas is back, Ian is engaged, Andrew is lonely on the discord. All good things. Van Alan joins us to discuss the recent stretch of what may just be the best bit of hockey we've seen out of the Boston Bruins all season. Are they hitting their stride at the perfect time? Who's in net come playoff time? Is Bill Daly the dumbest f--- on earth? VOICEMAILS (kinda), PREDICTIONS (abandoned), AND MORE. GET IN.

    This Deadline is Gonna Kill Me

    This Deadline is Gonna Kill Me

    The Boston Bruins keep blowing it, bouncing back the next night, and then blow it again. At least Andrew has the guts to lose predictions and stick to it night after night. At a historic pace I might add. PLUS: The deadline is gonna kill me, our voicemails keep getting weirder, and much more. GET IN.

Just Better

I’ve listened to a number of Bruins related podcasts and Short Shift is my #1 go to cuz it’s just better. The hosts are crazy knowledgeable without sounding like they’re regurgitating takes. Chemistry and banter is also fun and it feels like you’re in the conversation. I’m gonna get the courage to leave a voicemail for the show sometime soon!!!! GO BEEEEEEES!!!!
