Gospel of Hockey co-hosts Matt Gajtka and Larry Snyder seek to promote the pure sport, without the foolishness of fighting, which makes this week's featured guest a natural fit. Paul Busch, editor of the It's Not Part of the Game blog, joins the GoH to discuss his motivations for taking a diligent stand against fisticuffs in pro hockey, especially the NHL. How has he refuted arguments for keeping fighting in the sport at its highest level? Does Paul have a specific plan for phasing it out? Will our ongoing brain injury research be the "tipping point" and ultimately lead to a more aggressive punishment of fighting? Matt and Larry pick Paul's brain on his controversial and courageous stance, then they dig into this week's Local Hockey Report. Three local players had huge moments in the past few days at the NHL level, plus area college hockey programs enter the last month of their regular seasons.
