Checks and Chong
This is a double episode, folks. Get comfortable.
What a weekend it has been!
The Flames game was edge-of-your-seat stuff and some excellent hockey was on display as these two powerhouses of British ice-hockey put their best feet forward.
A great win on the night for Phoenix but just two goals short of the win on aggregate. Shame really as I reckon we could have had the Jets in the Final!
Sunday night saw the first actual, full-on, proper sell-out of the Phoenix's decade. It was packed. It was loud. It was lacking the odd working vending machine but it was quite a spectacle.
The first period of the game was fast and furious albeit with a lot of board action going on. The second was all about the goals, which were stunning.
The final period was spent watching Stevie Lyle fall apart. I know that will have brought a smile to a few Phoenix faces as Phoenix have lost the other five games in the series against the Bison.
Also, we finally caught-up with Liam Chong! He talks playoffs and being focused on the game.
See you on Saturday, folks.
The episode is right here.
