Ep. 15: Matt Calvert’s injury, and an 82-year-old fan joins the show (you’ll want to hear her story!)

November 26, 2019

Ryan S. Clark is back to talk injuries:

NBC Sports says it all happened after forward Matt Calvert was struck in the side head by an Elias Pettersson shot from point-blank range and remained down on the ice, bleeding from his head. The on-ice officials allowed play to continue and it ultimately resulted in Alex Edler scoring to bring to the Canucks to within one.

Peter Forsberg is living his best life right now, and we have clips from a Swedish game show to prove it. (Teaser: Forsberg, or "Foppa," and another athlete dramatically slide beers across a table in a game somewhat similar to shuffleboard.) 

And Clair Villano joins the show, she's 82, a fan of the podcast and says, "hockey in Denver is where it's at!"

Ep. 14: Emergency goalie activated! Byron Spriggs suits up for the Avs and shares his story

November 19, 2019

The Avs had to call in an emergency backup goalie during a Nov. 12 game in Winnipeg against the Jets. Byron Spriggs suited up but didn't quite make it onto the ice. 

"You really don't understand maybe in the heat of the moment what actually is going on, you know," Spriggs told us. "You really are technically one bad incident away from being in an NHL game." 

Former 9NEWSer now CNN photojournalist Andy Buck (@AndyJediBuck) also joined us in the studio where Steve and Geoff reminded him why the Avs rock.
