GDB 46.0: Going the Wrong Way (7pm MST, SNW)

One of my favourite movies scenes of all-time was in Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Del Griffith (John Candy) is driving while Neal Page (Steve Martin) is sleeping in the passenger seat.

GDB 43.0: Dynamite Defence (8:30pm MST, SNW)

When you have two Norris Trophy winners and a Canadian Olympian on your blueline, it is safe to assume the strength of your team should be your defencemen. The San Jose Sharks deploy Erik Karlsson, Brent Burns and Marc-Edouard Vlasic as their top-three blueliners. For my money that is the best top-three in the NHL….

Game Day Preview: Canada vs Finland

The New Years Eve matchup between Canada and Russia had a few goals, some big saves, and a good amount of bad blood. The one thing it didn’t feature was a Canadian victory. There was so much hype around this game and honestly, I think the young group of Canadians just let it go to…

GDB 39.0: Try to Avoid A Crash Landing (7pm MST, SNW)
