Coach Maurice:  Thoughts on the game.  How did he like the way his defence played?  Thoughts on Michael Hutchinson’s game?  On Byfuglien being engaged.  Play of the 4th line.  Jets strong PK.  Play of Tanev.  Jets PP.  More on Michael Hutchinson.

For a look around the NHL, where training camps are in full swing and hope springs eternal (except for certain woebegone teams), we are pleased to be joined by @hailey_salvian of @TheAthletic.

Tune in and join the conversation:

During #NHLJets Training Camp, it's easy to be Mr. Brightside.

Our next guest on The IC Hockey Show, @mikemcintyrewpg, is hopefully going to Smile Like He Means It, but regardless if we can Read His Mind, he will definitely remain The Man.
