Bedard’s OT Heroics, J.T. Miller’s ‘Net Crashing’, Bruins Stacking W’s, & More


New Year’s Eve celebrations included Dregs partying all the way till 12:01am, while Ray was at the Space Needle in Seattle after the Kraken vs. Oilers game. Rested and recharged, the guys ‘deliver the goods’ for the first episode of the New Year!

Headlines kicks off on the heels of a BEAUTY Connor Bedard OT winner that will surely go down in World Juniors folklore. The guys discuss a moment that was meant for Bedard, and Ray draws a comparison to an NHL hall of famer that might surprise you. Team Canada’s captain Shane Wright’s potential move back to the WHL is also covered as the Seattle Kraken look poised for the playoffs.

J.T Miller made waves as his unusual on-ice interaction with goalie Colin Delia circulated on social media. Ray speaks on relating to Miller’s emotion in the heat of the moment, but why it isn’t a good look, and discusses possible reasons for J.T's drop-off this season. Plus, the guys cover the Winter Classic as an event, and why the surging Boston Bruins might not want to add a big piece like Patrick Kane.

Kris Abbott joins the show. A scary incident in the NFL’s Sunday nighter is discussed as we collectively hope for Damar Hamlin's recovery. Kris talks chasing .500 in the pod’s weekly NFL picks as the Dolphins 'covered' against the Patriots. However, the fact the Dolphins lost should make bettors wary of putting money on them again. World Juniors bets are a hot topic and Kris talks the ‘happiness hedge’ he might consider as Team Canada is heavily favoured to win.

Ask Ray & Dregs sees questions on comparing the Bruins and Penguins Hall of Famers, and the guys look at their current rosters for who will garner consideration. A question on ‘top heavy’ vs. ‘cap friendly’ teams has the guys comparing NHL squads, and why David Pastrnak’s payday might change the dynamic in Boston. Plus, Ray commends a listener for asking him to ‘name names’ on his past teammates.
