Very low-tech: no bells, no whistles, no moderator Kevin Mio with his fancy mixing board, a hum from the Bell Centre’s Jacques Beauchamp Media Lounge overhead lights that we couldn’t turn off (and we tried) and recorded at 11:40 pm following the Canadiens’ 4-3 win over the Boston Bruins. (We knew it was time to end it when Boone started to get up to leave.)
What you get here is the year-end hot-stove babbling Puckcast from The Gazette’s Pat Hickey, Mike Boone and Dave Stubbs. Mostly Boone and Stubbs listening to Hickey – but he’s the beat man, so that’s as it should be – discussing the Habs win, Subban’s hit, Cammalleri’s fight (!), the callup of Max Pacioretty, the upcoming seven-game road trip, and backup goalie Alex Auld (in 1974, didn’t The Three Degrees record a hit “When Will I See You Again”?)
Happy holidays to all, and remember if you listen: you’ll never get this 22 minutes and 16 seconds back.
