EVERYTHING IS HAPPENING! Two days before free agency, the NHL takes leave of their collective senses, Merrin officially says goodbye to the Oilers, Carolyn doesn't understand any of it, and the entire offseason is just like a disgusting deconstructed sundae.
It's that time of year...Deep in the Heart of Hockey is back with the End of Season Musical Extravaganza! So turn your volume way, way down, and sing along with Carolyn & Merrin as they dissect the Stars' second round playoff exit, seranade Tyler Seguin, wax lyrical about goaltending, and express their hockey feelings through song.
Carolyn & Merrin talk the new name, playoff ups and downs, how much we love Leicester City, give tips on stress relief, personal finance, and why the New York Riveters are your new favorite team.
In the first-ever 2BL Playoff-bound podcast, the Ladies talk being #1 in the West, Merrin cries about Sam Gagner, Carolyn fills out a bracket full of feelings, and everyone knows you're just one wrong shirt away from elimination. It's gonna be lit, y'all.
The Ladies nominate Pat Maroon for the Masterton, are haunted by a phantom train, get confused by the number of people named Bill in the world, talk playoff seeding, Val's frustration, and whether old men live in trees. Remember: Podcasts are a social construct.
With only 8 points needed to clinch a playoff spot, the Ladies reflect on the Stars season, promptly jinx them by saying nice things about Kris Russell, Carolyn becomes "that guy", and Merrin has a baby related meltdown. You know, the usual.
With one week before the trade deadline, the Ladies chat about the Stars recent terrible play, where they think Dallas can upgrade, schadenfreude, and how Heather Benn set the standard for Good Hockey Moms everywhere.
In this episode, the Ladies talk musicals, aren't worried about the Stars (except when they are), Merrin gets blacklisted, Carolyn hates everyone, Ottawa makes a trade, and Connor McDavid is allowed to win the Calder, but only on one condition.
In this episode, the Ladies (eventually) discuss the upcoming All-Star Game, conclude the NWHL All-Star Game was pretty much the best ever, and are really cranky. Plus there's Horcoff, puppies, and more science than you can shake a stick at.
In this week-late episode, the Ladies talk the slump-that-shall-not-be-named, the most recent trade that Jim Nill won (hint: he made it in July), Merrin's mundane superpower is inneffectual rage, Carolyn does her best impression of Tyler Seguin, and no one's making it out of the zombie apocalypse alive.
