The 4th Line Hockey Podcast #176 – The Fiery Unelimination

The guys are back and Joel is upset with Carl and his reverse jinxing ways. So upset in fact, that in an unprecedented move he is removing the Colorado Avalanche from the Elimination Station. But have the Avs done enough to merit this? Can they ride on Nathan MacKinnon‘s wings to the playoffs?

With the Avalanche out, the Calgary Flames go in. How far are the Flames from being Stanley Cup contenders? Can Mike Smith do this again next year? Would the Flames do the Travis Hamonic deal again?

The general managers are meeting to discuss changes to goalie interference, playoff format changes, long term injured reserve and, for some reason, power plays? Which of these changes are actually better for the game?

William Karlsson has been on a tear this season. We look at him and other surprising scoring leaders.

Lastly, the Pavel Bure Must Watch Games of the Week are selected.

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.

Who are Carl and Joel? Carl comes from Calgary, AB. His facial hair of choice is a mustache. His team of choice is the Colorado Avalanche and his smoked meat of choice is brisket. Joel comes from Calgary, AB. His facial hair of choice is a beard. His team of choice is the Toronto Maple Leafs and his smoked meat of choice is ribs.
