NHL hockey is almost over and that sucks. On the bright side, we’ve got Celly in Seattle: Episode 7 to hold you over until Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final! John and Mike of Beast Pode joined us this week to talk about hockey and Seattle sports.

Here’s what we covered this week.

Stanley Cup Hypotheticals - 00:30

The Golden Knights were so unlucky in Game 4. We kicked off the podcast by speculating wildly about Game 5, our Conn Smythe picks, who will score the game winning goal.

We also talk about how to tell a clean hit from a dirty hit (looking at you, Tom Wilson).

Garth Snow and Doug Weight Fired - 26:00

In other NHL news, the firing of former Islanders GM Garth Snow and Head Coach Doug Weight made waves on hockey Twitter this week. We talked about why it’s such a big deal and what this means for Seattle.

Seattle NHL Team Name Alliteration Poll! - 34:25

Welcome to the tasteful gentlemen of Beast Pode! Together with John and Mike, we looked at this week’s poll asking if an alliterative name was important to the people of Seattle when considering an NHL team name. Here are the results!

We ended up getting a lot of interesting name suggestions on Twitter too.

Sonics Rising’s own Taylor Bartle reminded us of one very superstitious reason to consider an aliterative name.

Mike Gastineau’s Poll - 48:12

Mike Gastineau (or Gasman) of Seattle Sports Radio 950 KJR posted this poll on Twitter asking how women can impress men at the ballpark. We talked about why framing sports like this can be so frustrating to fans.

Listener Questions - 55:20
