Gigantic show this week! The guys welcome not one, but two very special guests, with NHL On The Fly and former Fox Sports North host Jamie Hersch, as well as TSN stat guru Mike Kelly both joining the show to talk hockey.

With Mike Kelly, the squad talks about his involvement in advanced statistics, and he helps convert eyeball test guys into true believers in watching the game with a more analytical perspective. Mike provides fascinating insight.
With Jamie Hersch, the pod discusses her transition from covering the Minnesota Wild full time to covering all 31 NHL teams equally on NHL Network. They also chat a little Twins baseball, and introduce “Lightning Round” to close out the interview.
Additionally, Brandon explains why Justin Kloos doesn’t get more recognition with the Iowa Wild, and Darren shares his experiences from his Wild road trip in Vancouver.
While recording at Wells Fargo Arena, Brandon gets a visit from a special guest... Big laughs ensue.
Finally, since this one was recorded over the weekend, the guys give a near-perfect (not really) prediction of Tuesday’s Wild/Avalanche game.
