On this episode of the "House of Hockey" Podcast, Rae and her guest co-host Andy Zilch, dive deep into the latest NHL news, PWHL news and share candid opinions on the hottest topics in the hockey world. 

First, they bring you up to speed on the excitement of the playoffs round 1, where the Dallas Stars shocked the hockey world by eliminating the defending champions, the Vegas Golden Knights, to the heartbreak of the Toronto Maple Leafs' Game 7 loss against the Boston Bruins. They discuss which team feels worse: Leafs or Knights.

The duo also dives into the Carolina Hurricanes’ Evgeny Kuznetsov's Slow-Mo Shootout Move and discusses whether that takes real skill or is just a flashy maneuver. 

Another hot topic on the agenda is the controversy surrounding ticket sales for Round 2, as the Carolina Hurricanes and Ticketmaster limit purchases to fans in specific regions, potentially blocking out NY Rangers supporters. 

Additionally, they dissect the recent coaching change for the Seattle Kraken, exploring the rumors that some players threatened to leave if Dave Hakstol remained at the helm. The drama continues with the Rod Brind’Amour coaching offer saga, questioning the timing of negotiating this during the team’s Stanley Cup run. 

Rae and Andy share their predictions for the PWHL’s Walter Cup winners before diving into a surprising revelation for Andy about his St. Louis Blues. 

Andy shares a recap of his recent work gigs, providing play-by-play in the roller hockey world. 

And they debate singer Shania Twain's hockey loyalties or lack thereof.

Andy is a freelance play-by-play hockey broadcaster who recently covered the ACHA National Championships in St.Louis, MO and works with the Champions Hockey League calling games. He recently spent 5 seasons with the AHL’s San Diego Gulls as their play-by-play broadcaster.
