Welcome to “2 Guys and a Goalie,” starring Dustin Nielson, Joaquin Gage, and Matt Kassian and presented by Odds Shark, Popeye’s Louisiana Chicken, and Sports Clips Haircuts. The show focuses on stories, notes, transactions, and everything else happening all around the NHL and the world of hockey.
The boys are back for 2020! Well… sort of. Dusty still away, but luckily Handsome Tom Gazzola is here to fill in!

They give their reviews on the new Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker.
They then discuss the Edmonton Oilers nearly blowing a six-goal lead on New Year’s Eve against the New York Rangers, but they also praise how Kailer Yamamoto performed in his season debut, and what the Oilers chances are for a playoff run.
The Tampa Bay Lightning are hot again, and they discuss whether the team has finally turned it around and are back in their form from last season.
