Recorded Oct. 24, 2021

Life as a Caps fan is still good, we are in Week 2 of the season and Our Washington Capitals have still not lost in regulation...

While every game does matter, we dispense with our usual in-depth recaps in favor of a deeper dive into the most recent game against the Flames. Of course the usual highlights are notes are presented in our own way for all games, but as we explain this one was the most telling.

We then have the pleasure of having on as our guest a longtime listener and supporter of the PPP, the Red Rockin' trucker himself Eric Hayes. He comes on and gives us some great stories about his life on the road (live from actually being on the road at the time) as well as his thoughts about this year's team.

In something of an impromptu OT segment we are also visited later on by Robbie Gross of the Sports On the Hill Podcast who comes on to give his customary intuitive observations on the Caps so far in this early season.

Welcome back PPP listeners!

The Mermaid and I kick off our 4th year together and our Washington Capitals' 48th NHL season. We begin with a brief catch up and a celebration of the life of Nicollet Bergren, Anna's mother who recently passed away. Her spirit and sense of life will never leave us.

We move on to hockey specifically the Caps chances this year.  Yes we are cautious but we are also optimistic and the both of us present the many reasons why. No matter what happens, this is going to be a fun team to watch...

Thanks again for joining us for what we hope to be another action-packed season of Caps hockey talk as only the Mermaid and I can bring it to you!

Hate to ring in the new season on a sad note, but a promise is a promise...

This episode is dedicated to the memory of Mike Stepp, who was one of the most faithful fans of Our Washington Capitals you would ever have the privilege of knowing. One of the things Mike is most remembered for is his part in creating the Caps Fans Facebook fan page to which this podcast owes a lot to.

Joining me to talk about Mike's life is one of his best friends who moderates and helps out at Caps Fans, Thom Gobble. He and I take time to not only discuss the older days of being a Washington Capitals fan but of course Mike's life in general.

Mike is survived by his mother, who is in financial need due to Mike's untimely passing. Please visit our Facebook page (search POWERPLAY POINT PODCAST) for information about donations.

 

Tune in tomorrow and all this week for our first full episode of the season.

The Triple P rides into the sunset....for 2021 anyway. Joined by the always able and willing Mrs. Blueliner, we wrap up the season with some bad (The Ol' Trotz debate) and some good (shouts to good friends of the show, old and new).

Christian Levesque leaves some points to ponder and we go over some possible moves to consider in the offseason as well as the ins and outs of the upcoming Expansion draft.

Thanks to you, all of our loyal listeners and Caps fans for making 2021 our biggest ever. See you next season. Keep the faith and LET'S GO CAPS!!!

Blueliner rides solo on this one...

In this edition of the Podcast we present the story of a truly awesome Caps fan, Bryce Jurkovac. First we go over how he got started as a fan of both hockey in general and the Caps. Bryce then goes over his military career which involved some dangerous work the likes of which aren't usually discussed in open company in great detail.

We then discuss his life after the service which ultimately led him to combine the family he had come to know and be a part of in the US Army and the sport he had come to love in his youth--the Warriors Hockey team. We discuss how he got his start there and what the team has come to represent. And the service the continue to provide when they play for both disabled Veterans as well as the hockey community.

Finally....the story of how Anna does what she does so well....reach out to people in need.

Find out more about both the Lonestar Warriors as well as the DC Warriors

Easily the toughest week of the season has come and gone....Our Caps are bruised, battered but not completely beaten as yet.

Anna and I put out our frustrations in a direct, honest and yet hopefully humorous way...because we know how you the Caps fans feels right about now. To aid us in this endeavor we are joined by friend of the show Josh Kirby of the Josh Kirby on Sports Podcast who helps us not only to vent but take another look at things in a certain perspective.

To be sure it's still OK to believe....even though things look dire.

Anna and I begin this week's show by recapping the regular season finale as well as the thrilling Playoff opener against the Bruins.

Ring the bell, school is in session. Except there's a new tutor in town...

Blake Allen of the Chirpin' DMV Podcast joins us to teach us all about Hockey Analytics. Some would call these Advanced stats. Some call it Moneypuck. However you see it, we guarantee you will become a better hockey fan for it.

Blake goes over what they are and in depth two of the more telling metrics--specifically Corsi and Expected Goals. Educational you say?  Maybe. But only if you learn something...

Programming note: the Sports on the Hill Podcast will air live this week Tuesday at 9 pm over both Facebook live and the TRU Radio Network due to Game 2 taking place Monday. Catch Anna for Caps talk in the first segment.
