Hockey Prime Time Radio Show Preview

James Murphy, a hockey scribe that I really look up to and admire, posted his weekly radio show preview on his blog today so I figured I would share it with you here.

Give this show a listen folks. Murph and co-host Conor McKenna know what they’re talking about and always have terrific guests on the show:

We’ve got a great show in store for you as we look at the Primetime stories around the hockey world. Murph and Conor will start things off by looking back at the week that was in the NHL and any other hot hockey topics. Former NHL referee and Head Of Officiating for the ECAC Paul Stewart will join Conor and Murph to discuss the turmoil surrounding NHL Executive Vice President Of Operations Colin Campbell and what has become known as “Coli-mail”. Andy Strickland of Truehockey.com joins us to talk some St. Louis Blues and look around the Western Conference, and player agent and family adviser Matt Ebbs of Ebbs Sports Management will be on to take about the latest CSB prospect rankings that came out this past week.

Rooting for the B’s

Seeing as how I went to college somewhat near Boston, MA (Stonehill College in N. Easton, MA), I have been rooting for the Bruins throughout these Stanley Cup playoffs.

Luckily for me, James Murphy, one of my favorite hockey writers, covers the B’s for NESN.com and he had the following to say regarding the keys to tonight’s big tilt:

1. Clear the traffic in front of the net

The five goals allowed by the Bruins in the 5-4 overtime loss in Game 4 was the most allowed by the B’s in the 2010 Stanley Cup playoffs.

The reason for these tallies had nothign to do with bad goaltending but rather a sea of orange in front of goalie Tuukka Rask throughout the game. The Flyers forwards were allowed free passage to the net, and Rask took full responsibility for the showing despite being helpless at times.

Medaling the Boston Bruins

From good friend of the blog James Murphy at NESN.com:

What’s an Olympic break without handing out some medals to the Bruins? James Murphy comes at you with deserving winners of the Bruins’ bronze, silver and gold medal—and throws in an honorable mention for good measure.

After the medals breakdown, Murphy speaks to the Bruins’ Stanley Cup hopes. The skinny? The team isn’t quite there as a viable contender—yet. It’s not about being one blockbuster trade away, it’s about developing as a team before the Bruins can be considered Stanley Cup contenders.

Miller, Sabres Struggling

From good friend of the blog James Murphy at NHL.com:

“The big part of it is if you let things start to creep into your head, get uneasy and start to lose confidence as a team. That’s exactly the wrong way to think. You have to believe that what you’re doing is the right thing. You have to trust you have a good system in place.”

Miller has allowed 15 goals during his five-game skid, with a 4.07 goals-against average and .874 save percentage. He still has very solid stats overall, with a 2.15 GAA and .931 save percentage. Miller thinks that he and his teammates just need to roll with the punches and realize that sometimes it’s not as good as it seems and other times it’s not as bad.

“We’ve had some games this year where we haven’t been very good and we’ve won,” Miller said. “And we’ve had a few games in this stretch even where I thought we’ve been really good and haven’t got rewarded for some of our play.”

An Interview with James Murphy of The Inside Hockey Radio Show

Almost every Friday or Saturday on Kukla’s Korner, our very own Alanah will post an advertisement for the Inside Hockey Radio Show, which can be heard on XM NHL Home Ice, Team 990, and AM 1120 in Boston.

Since their ad is constantly on our site and because I am a big fan, I figured that this would be the perfect opportunity to interview the host of the show, James Murphy. Murphy is a hockey journalist and his musings can be read on NHL.com, InsideHockey.com, NESN.com and Le Magazine and heard on XM Home Ice, Team 990 and AM 1120.
