Weiss Hockey: 2-6-19

By Andrew Weiss

This week in hockey: The Patriots won the Super Bowl, life is meaningless, eat at Arby's. Also, hockey stuff.

Quick Hits – What happened in hockey this week

- Good morning, that Super Bowl was terrible to watch, huh? Well, onto hockey I guess.

- No podcast this week thanks to -20 weather in Chicago that combined with wind chill to feel like -52. Doesn't Chicago know I'm from Florida?? Someone turn up the heat in this city!
