Silky N’ Filthy podcast: Vancouver loves Marchand and Beggsy’s Blues

Beggsy goes 0-4 in Round Two and curses two more teams during Round Three predictions

NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Boston Bruins at Columbus Blue Jackets
May 2, 2019; Columbus, OH, USA; Boston Bruins left wing Brad Marchand (63) skates to the penalty box after being called for tripping against the Columbus Blue Jackets in the second period during game four of the second round of the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs at Nationwide Arena.

This is how you make the best of a bad situation and boy, was I in a hole coming out of Round Two.

Yep, I’m that guy who gets to proudly wear the badge of shame after going 0-4 on my picks in Round Two. Did I have some regrets after my previous picks? Sure. Did I think I could still get at least one or two right? Of course I did.

Did I crush a beer for every Round Two loss on the latest episode of Silky N’ Filthy? You’re god damn right I did.

How else is one supposed to cope with such failure?

On the bright side, the rage of predicting every series wrong makes for an energized episode of Silky N’ Filthy.

And what’s a rage-fueled episode without talking about hockey most notorious rat?

Brad Marchand was his typical self in Round Two, pissing people off while making a difference on the score sheet. Kyle Bhawan and I talk about his surprising rise to prominence after 6 NHL seasons as a 50-60 point guy. What changed with his game?

We also break down the rest of the series in Round Two, and I curse two teams in Round Three by once again, picking two more underdogs.

Here’s a breakdown of the episode.
