Listen now
We're on a time crunch folks so let's get right into it! This week's Kraken Reaction (2:25) covers another run by the Coachella Valley Firebirds as they await their final opponent of the 2023-2024 season in the Calder Cup Final, and where the Seattle Kraken ranked in The Athletic's annual broadcaster awards as voted on by fans from around the league and Jeff gives insight into why Mickey and Ken are so good at covering hockey in the Motor City (Detroit Red Wings podcast). In NHL News: Jeff and Joey break down their biggest takeaways from the first two games of the Stanley Cup Finals including Bob willing the Florida Panthers to victory in game 1, how Edmonton needed much more than physicality in game 2, what to expect in the series moving forward as things got a lot more personal, injuries, and Paul Maurice providing us with yet another all-time quote at the postgame presser. In #NoDumbQuestions, (22:28) Joey goes full STAT MAN to see if any team has ever come back from being down 0-2 in the Stanley Cup Finals which leads to yet another history lesson in the Detroit Red Wings where Jeff's former self dealt with heartbreak in a Cincinnati church basement at the hands of his most hated NHL team. Three Stars of the Week covers everything from an Indiana judge deciding what the definition of Mexican food is, birthday golf with the boy, how to rob a bank, "Fallout" on Amazon Prime and Joey's hot take on it, and Joey Chestnut getting banned from the 4th of July Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest.
