This here is the official archival spot for the Down the Frozen River Podcast. Miss the one from weeks ago and don’t want to scroll through everything, simply look for it on this page. Or maybe you’re just looking for something to win an argument with, either against us or your best friend, in that case listen to our files for what you’re looking for.

You might be wondering why we haven’t had one in a while- that’s because our podcast 1) hasn’t been made yet for this week 2) is taking a week off or 3) is on a little hiatus because of this thing called the summer. So please be patient, we’ll have plenty more on the way.

Instead of writing what the Down the Frozen River crew talked about this week like usual, I’m not going to write anything about the subject matter- therefore forcing you to listen to the entire episode! Trick or treat.

Down the Frozen River Podcast #13- Torts, Goalies, and Other Essentials

The Down the Frozen River Crew talks about the latest in league standings, Winners and Losers, more surprises, other things, and makes several plugs for themselves. Also, Antti Raanta’s only played in 1 game (0.00 GAA, 1.000 SV%), which is not considered by the NHL.com stats page to be leading the league in goalie stats, so you lucked out this time, Reto Berra.

Connor didn’t butcher any names, although he did talk about a keg in a machine instead of a cog… wonder what’s on his mind. Oh and Colby may or may have not spilled the beans on our next marketing campaign. Nick, as usual, did Nick things.

The Down the Frozen River crew analyzes the offseason moves made by all the Pacific Division teams and provides their 2015-2016 season outlook. We implemented a new introduction to our podcast (and we hope you like it). Connor improved, but still managed to mess up a name or two.
