Lot of good hockey out there or not only in the NHL but. You've got the Milwaukee admirals getting ready to get it on. And the one I was tell him talking about this before we went to break through that the series have been watching. Has been the spectacular when you see peck around a who used to be a Milwaukee admiral. Has shut out the first two games against a Chicago Blackhawks Kane and in Toews and company shut him out and then only allowed two goals so far this bossi has been fantastic. And are you get to see guys like this play for the Milwaukee admirals which is the he minor league system for the Nashville Predators who were up three games to zip right now on the Blackhawks as. Well Nashville's hoping to close it out tonight in Nashville's a matter of fact that they can shut amounting closing down. They can walk away and win that first round talk more about it more about the Milwaukee admirals in their post season Aaron Sims voice of the admirals Aaron. I have been no I can't say I'm shocked but packer read AA has certainly been a hero so far this postseason. A he's been he's been really good guys around him have been very good as well like keeping bodies from the front of the net you can't push and shove what you could in the old days so. It's it's kind of like basketball you gotta get your spot didn't and establish position defensively and they've got a great job there blocked a lot of shots but Packers certainly. Gonna get a lot of credit they and he should. And and just say you're not shocked yeah that to a degree I guess but that is the way they've done it and outscored the Blackhawks 92 and three games I don't think anybody saw that coming. So let's talk about this admirals team because is admirals team got off to an extremely fast start and then their season. Comes to an ad and then there are now looking towards the post season and this match of so let's talk about that first and foremost how do you see this team going into the post season. Age pretty exciting. This is as close the team as there has been since I've been here these guys. And in the talks so much about cohesion and veteran leadership and all this stuff and I guarantee you there's fifteen other teams in the American Hockey League they're sixteen into the NHL that's the exact same thing. But in Milwaukee I think they feel better they have been several years because of the additions of guys like Trevor Schmidt who's the captain Adam parties it was late 340 games in the NHL. Mike Ribeiro who has played almost 11100 games. In the inning chill both guys added to an exciting young group of players. Really makes this team feel pretty well about about their chances with. In a Grand Rapids won seven of the twelve the admirals went by even 56 and had one no overtime loss soak. The apples are feeling pretty gutsy on the admirals had lost in straight in grand wrap dating back to January 2015. But this or that won three of the last four. Grand Rapids. Have a lot of to be positive about heading into the series and the Griffin's. Wood is there a bomb it out you never hope for somebody in particular do you play for a pure player you always say you know we'll take on whoever bud. There was a chance they could have ended up facing Chicago which could turn out to be. That that border rivalry so to speak was there a part of you as a broadcast of the was hoping that would have been Waltz. Let the football regret regret but I think at some chips and Crennel. He didn't win Grand Rapids at that winning streak in their wing and adjustable when you're in her very well. But let's see that so I'm on hold because whatever the socially nor is breaking up terribly so let's see if we can get a better Celso enormity and you are why do wanna talk more about this. The Milwaukee admirals tomorrow night his 7 o'clock eastern time 6 o'clock central time and everything on the Grand Rapids Griffin's. Over in Grand Rapids in the year first game of that series so. Our make sure that till we get to we gives much admiral chatter is weak possibly can but. As he said and they were finally starting to win over there so they're feeling pretty good really feeling pretty confident about going there. To be able to take on the Griffin's over in Grand Rapids 855830864. Let's try to get us try to get Aaron maybe walked on the claws that are took took you know finally finished go to the bathroom. So they go that's a better signal we don't Hebrew. Through the editor group or two possibility troop build our relatives I notice I know you are yet but I got to this day. All I have never in my life been a bubble had you looked pretty good as Boller had dude are. I had said that liberated a good job I just said don't make we just had apparently I'm pretty good job those of you out pretty happy at one that I feel good about giving to the family. You haven't years. You're like the broadcaster bowed to Pollyanna Carrie yeah. Yeah I would put more weight about which you didn't shoot very well. Obviously getting back to this is this matchup in this first round so I like you talked about they finally kind of going over the hump so to speak with some of the Grand Rapids put. What is Grand Rapids bring to the table it's gonna give a Milwaukee problems. Well Grand Rapids is is tremendously skilled they have a lot of young players who are a bit high draft picks for Detroit. They have a tremendous veterans they have three guys on the team that won a championship with that team in 2013. So. In this league that says there that doesn't happen that much we in the adult and have two guys on the current roster. And one who was not injured that won a championship in this week so. Got three guys from the same team four years ago that that that a lot of ball to the cohesion and we talked so much about that but. I Grand Rapids is an awfully good team they're guys that can shoot the puck. They they squirrel article there about three and a half goals per game which is astronomically high and that they need to hockey so. It is there's no doubt it will be channeled it certainly will be challenged the vehicles Gillick the rough to a teacher. We talk about riding hot goalies right now that's what it all comes down to how is that who matches up better. I tell you what. VP season series mark adamant that the apples number one goaltender any of the goals against that have been half. And it save percentage under 90% and then it's and that great that being said. Since February 1 round of the numbers have been outs and difficult against it about two point previous save percentage around 92% both are fantastic numbers. Your coral is about the same coral played fourteen games in the NHL Detroit this year. He's three and three against Milwaukee this season with a 3% rate of about 90% took it kind of pedestrian. All of the other got a Grand Rapids had today and and any coach quality was drafted by the Atlanta Thrashers which you never hear that name anymore. Here he can't actually shut the apple thought twice this year what foreign want I think we're gonna see Jared Cole more because he has. The true number one on that team but they have a pretty good ace in the hole and that's quality over there. So when it comes down to x.s and o.s and hockey arm is there something that you look for specifically because a lot of times people really if you don't follow hawking your casual fan. Ages of like a much you guys gave me kind of pass and things around but there are so many things did you try to find weaknesses in match ups his lines change. Who's got the advantage when you start getting into the bench depth. Well these people teams pretty good that they'll roll four lines in bowl teams aren't really necessarily linebackers. Bought that being said when you have home ice. You get the final change so we are here in this series for example do you have a in the adult head coach puts out his five players on the ice. Todd Nelson the Grand Rapids coached. Can say okay. This guys on the site so I want to make sure this guy can block because he can skate or he can be physical he can be rock bottom he can make it difficult for him so. Those are the types of things that you know there are systems. That they play. You know how he worked renewed calls on the left wing locks. You know did trying to negate passes. On the all of that stuff it is the big thing with this you can't hold and hook and all of this stuff like he used to in the old days ten years ago. But that being said you can make it hard you do not want him to have the other team have speed through the neutral zone because they get the puck in deep. The big defenseman turn around and then that's when the turnovers happened so it's really become a game opportunities and being opportunistic. In the in this day and age. Gone back to the NHL we alike and so far in the post season. Locker you want it's hard to go looking at natural right now on you know career Ric Flair always says to be the man you got to beat them and the natural beating them and right now I'm. So it's really hard not to like them you know beginning of the year they were an attractive pick were at least the final appearance because. Although the addition of Kiki Superman and the health of the team and and that really had that added some depth. You know Harry's older Cilic is a guy who was. Not both be natural he has one of the goals eight of the nine goals scored by the Predators this year in the playoffs eight of those came from got the plate for Milwaukee so it's then they use the depth and they used it really well armed. It's hard to go get natural which a lot alike think it exposing Washington out east I thought I thought Washington would be the favorite. But Toronto's Pete did is really exposing Washington although Washington came back with a nice win yesterday but. Theory you know again in an eight feet can win eight seed has won in this in this league and that you is right now it. Looks like natural doing pretty well and looked as well too. Yeah I was gonna say I wouldn't sleep on the saint Louis blues and and I like that matchup that they have with a wild and right now saying loosely says series three games of one. And the blues although they took the loss to the wild in game four puzzle was back was against the wall Saturday night should be a really go what in many out ask. Yeah you know Saint Louis last night they came all set and in order kind of like just go into the mulch and like now we're up three nothing we can just get through an easy one here. And and it burned them. Armed they can't afford to do that in the next game and in. The hardest win that game four and I know that cliche but there's a reason for wishes and then seamless need to be much much better than they were. It's because he's my friend all the bubble had it sitting on my desk once they said to Minnesota guys wanna the only ones and keeping so just trying to. Flattering I appreciate that bill got the ball over that I'm gonna dress it up it's going to be wearing Hawaiian close by Ian Summers and let it go be right there with me I promise not to take it in the bathroom. Don't reflect the doctors that are. Thanks a guy that's there and Sims should go hockey at rolls and a breaking down Allen the admirals in the Grand Rapids Rubens but also the NHL as well good stuff. Onto the Tonys and the children's program a good stuff. When are we get a chance to get him.
