First off, I’d like to thank Buddy Oakes of Preds On The Glass for having me on his radio show last night. We talked for about an hour and a half about the Blackhawks, Predators, head shots and what can be done to prevent such hits and some of the injuries that result from those. If you’re a Twitter-er and ever need a Predators fix, you should follow Buddy. His other guest last night was Mark from another Predators site, TheViewFrom111. I jumped on about ten minutes in. A direct link to listen to last night’s show is here.
And after you listen to that, and if you haven’t had your fill of my flu-ridden twang, TheThirdManIn~Radio returns tonight, Live at 8pm central at BlogTalkRadio.com/TheThirdManIn. No guest tonight. We’ll have plenty of news, notes and perspective from the two Rockford IceHogs games of the past weekend; Which Rockford prospects are close to helping, who isn’t and who doesn’t belong in the AHL. I had a chance to take in both games; losses, on Saturday and Sunday. We’ll get to many more of your emails. If you have a question or topic you’d like to hear addressed on the show, send me an email at radio@TheThirdManIn.com or ChrisBlock@TheThirdManIn.com with “radio show” included in the subject and we’ll get to it on the show…. I actually have an insightful and useful fantasy hockey segment tonight. Unlike the one I spewed from the crack of my backside last Tuesday. Professional operation we have here. Of course we’ll discuss what’s wrong with the Hawks. What needs to change and small alterations to be made to turn things around? We’re also shooting straight on what Jack Skille can do if he wants to become an effective, permanent NHLer.
— My intention was to do another full IceHogs postgame report Sunday night after their game with Peoria, however, with travel, work and being ridden with sick and overdoses of over-the-counter anti-flu medicines, Sunday’s game recap dropped off my radar. If you missed my detailed report of Saturday’s demoralizing 3-1 loss to Manitoba, click here.
Instead, I’ll share the bullet points from Sunday’s 5-1 loss at Carver Arena in Peoria. Continue reading »
