Kelly is joined by Patrick Olsen from The Copper & Blue to have a chat about what we should expect from the hockey team the Oilers when they make their first visit to The Farg this afternoon. Our boys are coming off a less-than-impressive meeting with the Predators, and the Oilers are coming off a pretty exciting OT win over the Blackhawks, so we’ll see if momentum plays a role. Here’s what we chatted about:

  • Connor McDavid’s extreme greasiness
  • What it is like to have a front office led by Peter Chiarelli
  • The often-overlooked charm of old NHL arenas like the Spectrum and Rexall Place
  • Okay, we talk a lot about Connor McDavid.

Puck drops early today; it’s a 1 p.m. start on NBC Sports Philly. Let’s go Flyers!
