This podcast was originally to be titled "Who's your favorite Backstreet Boy?" but then the Norris news hit.

The Hosts: MGoHockey Correspondent David Nasternak and Las Vegas Knights fan Anthony Ciatti. .

This Podcast Has a Sponsor: Michigan Law Grad Jonathan Paul is the guy with the C you want skating next to the ref and pleading your case. He's also a good guy to sit next to at the hockey games.

This podcast was recorded right before the news that Michigan's leading goal scorer is out for the year after getting injured at the World Juniors. It was too late to add anything about it, and anyway it would have lost us our precious family rating despite the fact that David is constitutionally incapable of using swear words.

1. On Taking It Outside

starts at 0:50

Welcome back! We don’t really talk about the GLI because it wasn’t on TV! Anthony does talk about the GLI’s impact on his Michigan fandom growing up and we lament how its reduced significance has affected fans in the area.We talk about the outdoor game with Notre Dame, some zany goals because of the conditions, and how Michigan was the beneficiary of a rare goalie meltdown. Outdoor games are hard to watch on TV but a blast in person and a great benefit to those who are able to attend, we discuss this and other nuances of the events.

2. What Happens in Vegas

starts at 20:55

avid sadly talks about the Merrimack loss while Anthony heaps praise on the Vegas Golden Knights in-game experience and how those intertwine. How can Michigan lose to a team that in the 15-ish percentile when that is sandwiched by two top ten wins? We talk OSU, a series split on the road is great. Michigan benefits from parity in the conference in this instance, although the pathway to parity has been a net negative but still welcomed considering where the conference was a few years ago. How does Michigan beat two top-ten teams? The trap! Anthony talks about this and other clever things the team is doing to get by this season. What does Michigan have to do to make the tournament?
