Joel returns to the show and has some big news, but he won’t tell us. But he will hint at the news the entire show. The show starts with cleaning out the Rant Shack for Carl so that he can step into it and share his thoughts about the Los Angeles Kings and Jonathan Quick‘s treatment of the concussion protocol. What is the point in a concussion protocol if no one follows it?
Roman Polak is back on the Toronto Maple Leafs. Will Joel at least acknowledge that it’s happening?
The Montreal Canadiens continue to struggle. What is the solution? Is there a solution?
Antti Niemi‘s time as the Pittsburgh Penguins’ backup goaltender has come to an end. Who should the Penguins be looking to as the new backup? Malcolm Subban has joined the wounded with the Vegas Golden Knights meaning that they are on their third goalie of the season. Backup goalies in the NHL are a surprisingly important piece of a team, when an injury occurs. Why don’t teams look for better backups?
Andreas Athanasiou is back with the Detroit Red Wings. Why did it take so long and what exactly are the Red Wings doing?
The guys also pick the Pavel Bure Must Watch Games of the Week, for which you can play Game Winning Goal Hi Sticking!

The 4th Line Podcast is a weekly hockey podcast hosted by Carl Landra and Joel Schnell. Every week they share their unique and fun take on what is happening in the world of hockey. While they don’t take themselves too seriously, they have a typical no 4th line attitude: what they lack in finesse, they make for in being willing to go to the corners and work hard to get the job done.
