As the Blackhawks set themselves up for the final stretch before the postseason, Robert and Adam go over how well they think the Hawks have played in the past week with new pieces like Andrew Ladd, Dale Weise, etc. The guys also preview the upcoming tough stretch of games and take a look at the Pacific Division side of the Western Conference playoff bracket. The pair also speak with Defending Big D managing editor, Taylor Baird, about the rise of the rival Stars and their prospects in the postseason.
The overall rundown:
- Talking Dallas Stars with Taylor Baird from Defending Big D.
- How newly acquired Blackhawks have fit in the past week, as well a preview of an upcoming Western Conference gauntlet. (How have Ladd, Weise, Tomas Fleischmann, and Christian Ehrhoff fit in so far?)
- World Cup of hockey rosters and schedule announced. (Prohibitive favorite to win it all, sleeper team, roster snubs, and jersey issues)
- The absolute without question, definitive ranking of Mario games across any genre or system. Nostalgia likely provided (Warning: hot takes included.)
