Alex and Jim spend some time conversing about one of the big splashes the organization was able to achieve in 2021-22, the theme jerseys worn throughout the season. Alex specifically makes sure to highlight her favorite, the Al the Ice Gorilla throwback jerseys. The design was based off of the former mascot and Jim gives fans of that design some really good news for the 2022-23 season. The two then discuss the Laval series, fan attendance, and the how former Crunch players Danick Martel and Cedric Paquette have done such a great job against Syracuse.
Jim acknowledges the challenges of selling tickets for Tuesday’s game 5 with such a short turnaround but expresses confidence that the Syracuse faithful will show up, be loud, and support their team. Alex ends the episode with a short look at Game 5 and some of the big headlines going into the contest, including the injury Syracuse goalie Max Lagace suffered during game 4 and how the Tampa Bay Lightning could end up shorting the Crunch a player or two sooner rather than later.
