Cats, Wood and all that Jazzy

A bit of a strange show this week.  I think the cold wind in the car park got to us a little bit.

Anyway, the Cats were dispatched by a hard-battling Phoenix side.  They weren't too pleased about it either.

Hoog was shut down for the most part and young Andrew did a good job in between the pipes for Phoenix. Nell and Perkkio did their best to rain on the Phoenix parade but it was all for nought as Phoenxi prevailed and took their first four-point weekend for a little while.

All of that and the Flames did their bit to keep the Jets from breathing down the Phoenix necks for a little while longer.

The show is right here.

Phoenix Liews to Flames

Yes, we chat about "that" article tonight.  Well, I provide a summary of it; we all have a bit of a grumble about it and about the more bizarre of the responses to it and then we move on.

If you want to read it and can stomach reading anything on the Telegraph website, it's here.

Moving on to the ice hockey, it was a freak goal that put an end to an otherwise good game that had OT written all over it.  Jorge will watch that back a hundred times and still not believe it.  I'm guessing that it is already on YouTube so I won't bore you with writing it up here.  Listen to the show and watch Phoenix TV. Then cry a bit.

Feisty and scrappy at times, this match showed how much Phoenix wanted to claw back up to the top two and how much Guildford would play through the pain to stop them.

It's the Flames again on Wednesday night (away) and then a tough tie against the Jets on Saturday before we head back to the Dome.  Lets hope for happier things this time next week.

Jets Shot Down

On the back of a couple of undesired results this week, it was a great pleasure to see the Phoenix win so convincingly at home on Sunday.  The Jets were hurting after a defeat at the hands (or paws) of the Tigers on Saturday but Phoenix were even more driven by the result against the Wildcats on the same night.

The game was a mixed bag for the first period and, in fact, the first half but then Phoenix flew away with a total of 7 goals past Rockman.

Jorge El-Hage, having taken a bit of a hammering in the last week, stood up well to the opposition whilst Steve Fone and Joachim Flaten were still out, injured.

James Neil joined us for a chat at the end of the game.  We haven't heard from him in a little while so it was nice to catch him upbeat and feeling positive about the way things are going.

Of course, James had cause to be happy.  Not just because of his birthday trip to see the likes of Josh Ward and Robert Lachowicz this week but also because tonight's results yielded defeats for both Bison and the Flames.  Nothing is over quite yet....

Next week is two road games so there may or may not be a podcast, depending upon work and the like but, come what may, we'll all be cheering our boys on from wherever we may be.

We'll talk in your ears again soon....
