It's the Moooost Wonderful Tiiiiime of the Year!
But first, we quickly recap the end of the regular season. Several games are covered, with wins, losses, milestones and heck - even goals by Magnus Paajarvi and Robert Bortuzzo happened! The heart of the show, however, is finally getting a chance to talk to our buddy and #FancyStats -whisperer Robb Tufts. He talks to us about watching the season finale amongst Caps fans, and also what he has found when looking at the Blues through the analytics prism. We talk about the goalie controversy/non-controversy, and also the nature of goal-scoring stats. It's always a fun time catching up with Robb. At the end, catch our Blues/Hawks predictions - one of which might come as a surprise to you.
Give it a listen, eh?
