Hockey and Stuff

Avatar
By Emily King
Ice hockey isn't exactly huge in the UK, but since reviewing NHL 12 back in 2011, I've been slowly falling in love with the sport. Maximum velocity was hit during the 2017-18 season, thanks to the Boston Bruins, and a little web comic called Check, Please! So join me as I talk with little to no knowledge about ice hockey 🏒 and talk with knowledge about other stuff, like Supernatural and videogames.

#11: New ink
This weekend has been spent catching up with the Boston Bruins; pondering the nature (fights v "hugfests") and future of NHL ice hockey (gambling)... And getting the colour work on one of the most beautiful ice hockey tattoos you have ever seen.

A catch up on the Boston Bruins not so fab away games against the Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks. Plus a look at a very expensive For Dummies book on ice hockey, with a side of knitting.

#7: NHL 19 and ow my thumbs
Feeling well enough to spin up my copy of NHL 19 on my PS4, I continued my quest to be the best player the Boston Bruins have ever seen, while also torturing my thumbs a little. Plus I have a little whine about waiting for the next installment of the Check, Please! webcomic.

With the opening Capital's game a distant memory, I chat about how the Boston Bruins dominated the Detroit Red Wings. P.S. Pastrňák is amazing.

#4: Senators v Bruins
Don't let my chill manner deter. I was super excited to watch the Senators v Bruins live. I'm remaining optimistic for the season.

Why support the Boston Bruins? That's the question sort of doggedly answered in today's episode. With also a confession about my second love: the Vegas Golden Knights.
