Welcome to “2 Guys and a Goalie,” starring Dustin Nielson, Joaquin Gage, and Matt Kassian and presented by Odds Shark, Popeye’s Louisiana Chicken, and Sport Clips Haircuts. The show focuses on stories, notes, transactions, and everything else happening all around the NHL and the world of hockey.
Kass is back in studio! Dusty gets his thoughts on the Battle of Alberta, then they talk about the recent hot streak from Alex Ovechkin, and what his chances are at breaking Wayne Gretzky’s goal-scoring record.
The Athletic recently put out their player poll, and Dusty asks the guys who their favourite player were to have a beer with, and they discuss who the player’s voted for as the best player and goaltender.
Dusty quizzes Kass and Gager with Jeopardy!, former-teammates edition.
