Here we are with episode 5 of the 3 Amigos podcast- Reed Duthie, Kirk Luedeke and Dominic Tiano.
We cover a lot of ground in this one, sending our best wishes, thoughts and prayers to former Bruin Craig Cunningham and his family after he collapsed before a game involving his Tucson Roadrunners of the AHL. It was a heart attack and he’s in stable condition as of this posting, but a tremendous outpouring of support has gone out to him- we break it down some more.
We also discuss the early developments of the Bruins season and how the team has stood the preseason narrative of a porous defense and powerful offense on its head thus far. Of course- the podcast was recorded before captain Zdeno Chara was lost in the Tuesday night loss to the St. Louis Blues, so that’s a development to watch. We don’t know much about the injury yet, but if the second period Kabuki Dance in the Boston end was any indication, he’s the one guy this team could ill-afford to be without for an extended period.
Tuukka Rask gets his due for the tremendous performance he’s had thus far, playing like the elite goalie everyone knows he can be.
We talk youngsters Brandon Carlo and Austin Czarnik, plus the savvy veteran additions of Dominic Moore and Riley Nash.
And of course- there’s Bruins prospect talk and a look ahead at some names for the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.
The closing tune is 12 Stones’ “Anthem of the Underdog” which is our tribute to Craig Cunningham- get well soon, Cunner!
Now, go listen to the podcast- thanks as always for the support.
