Beginner's Puck #4 April 5, 2017
Olympics and EBUGS

Should They Stay or Should They Go?

This week Edmonton is turning orange which leads Erika and Deb down the fruitless - but always amusing - path of which team has the best jersey. The bittersweet joy of watching the new kids skate with the eliminated teams is discussed and there is a bit of a disagreement between your hosts over the NHL’s decision to sit out the 2018 Winter Olympics.

In this week’s “What The Puck?” the weird and wonderful phenomenon known as the “Emergency Back-up Goaltender” (EBUG) is explained.

Finally, in this week’s Hockey Tidbit, Deb thinks the tradition of rookie solo warmup laps is adorable, even if they’re not a surprise.

Do you agree with the NHL’s Olympic decision? Drop us a comment or tweet and let us know!
