Welcome to “2 Guys and a Goalie,” starring Dustin Nielson, Joaquin Gage, and Matt Kassian and presented by Odds Shark, Popeye’s Louisiana Chicken, and Sports Clips Haircuts. The show focuses on stories, notes, transactions, and everything else happening all around the NHL and the world of hockey.
The boys give their thoughts on Sheldon Keefe’s debut as Toronto Maple Leafs head coach last week, and the story that Mike Babcock asked Mitch Marner, during his rookie season, to compile a list of the “hardest workers” on the Leafs’ roster, and what it might mean for his future as a head coach in the NHL.
But first, marvel over Keith Yandle losing nine teeth and returning to play.
Then they give their thoughts about the Edmonton Oilers success, if they think the team is for real, and if Ken Holland needs to make any further moves.
