More good stuff comes from the Thom Abraham Show this afternoon as he interviewed Nashville Predators goalie Pekka Rinne, who beat Atlanta Saturday night to end a 5-game losing streak for the Preds.

You can listen to the segment via the following link:
Thom does a great job of getting Peks to loosen up a bit in the interview, as we hear about what he'll be doing during the Olympic break, whether the NHL should continue to participate in the Olympics, and also drops news that he'll get the start tomorrow night against Phoenix, thanks in part to a new addition the Ellis household (congrats to Dan & his wife Katie!).
RADIO UPDATE: There's also encouraging news from 104.5's new 12-3 weekday show, 3 Hour Lunch. They had an entertaining segment with Jordin Tootoo earlier today, and I get the impression that while they're football guys at heart, they do plan on giving hockey its due. Thanks to Brent & the gang for mentioning this site on their show today.
