Welcome, friends, to a brand new episode of the Real Life Podcast. It’s the podcast where the boys set an agenda every week and are lucky to check off even half of it. This week, the boys touch on the Oilers recent run of solid play, recap Saturday’s fan therapy brunch party, and a whole lot more.
To start off this week’s podcast, the boys jumped in with a look at John Tavares’ return to Long Island and whether or not Islanders fans should be embarrassed about how they acted. Along the lines, the guys also discussed the celebration that happened a couple of days later when Leafs fans gave Tavares a standing ovation back at the ACC. Was it too much? From there, the guys get into the fan therapy brunch that happened at the Brewhouse on Saturday morning and marvel at the Nation’s ability to come together even when things are going poorly with the hockey team. Sticking with the Oilers, the guys spent a few minutes looking at Mikko Koskinen’s stellar play since Cam Talbot’s trade to Philadelphia and wondering if he can keep it going for the rest of the year. Lastly, it is Jesse Puljujarvi’s hip surgery day so the guys wrap up this week’s podcast with a look at the youngster’s health and whether or not we’ve seen the last of the former fourth overall pick in an Oilers uniform.
