Leagues of Their Own
It’s a great hockey week for Erika, not so much for Deb, as they discuss the run for the playoffs. They then delve into the U.S. Women’s National Team’s decision to boycott the Women’s World Championship’s being held later this month.
In “What the Puck?” Deb and Erika break down the league, conference and divisions of the NHL and why every point counts as teams fight for a Wild Card position.
Note: Deb does not actually think any hockey organizations, or players, actually went into the desert to lick frogs.
How do you feel about the US WNT’s decision? Is your team on the wrong side of the Wild Card race? Let us know what you think!
