After three weeks of wonderful guest co-hosts (thanks Cam and Pete!), Brian returns from paternity leave to join Elan for another classic episode of the Keeping Karlsson Hockey Podcast, chock full of the latest NHL hot streaks, cold streaks, injuries, outjuries, line changes and fantasy analysis.
On this week's show, your intrepid co-hosts discuss the possible key players in Edmonton's resurgence, the reliability of a handful of backup goalie options around the league, the potential for Alex Ovechkin to make history, the 3-headed goalie monster in Arizona, the 6-butted goalie disaster in Philadelphia, tire fire Flyers (plus a King and an Isle), and a Rangers forward best described by a fart noise. They also demonstrate why they should never/always do karaoke, and how difficult it is for them to make bets with each other.
