Beginner's Puck #43 August 15, 2020
Tukka Rask leaves bubble and crosschecking

No Cross Check, Please!

So far, so good, right? The bubble appears to be holding, but but that doesn’t mean it’s all champagne and roses, especially if you’re a Bruins fan. Deb and Erika talk about today’s biggest story (Tukka Rask), last week’s biggest story (that 6+ hour game), and the final slotting of the draft lottery. (Remember that?)

We also touch on the sassiness of the Jumbotron operators; the heroes and villains of the playoffs; and, of course, The Refs (See also: heroes and villains).

In this episode’s “What the Puck” we are all about the checks: body, hip and cross as well as a few that were new to us.

And, finally, Erika has been sprinkling the internet with her hockey tidbits over at @HollyGoGarkly on Twitter.
