Hockey and Stuff

Author: Emily King

Subscribed: 0Played: 1


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.

Based Cornwall, UK.

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.
A look at real and virtual Atlantic Division standings, plus an update on updating NHL 19 rosters, and the call of World of CHEL?/Chel? (EA, which is it?)

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.
A look at Thursday's Oilers @ Bruins game. Plus an analysis of the NHL app and game playback, and how I'm itching to get back to NHL 19.
