Connecticut Sports Talk, Feb. 17

Wednesday's Nutmeg Sports picks up where CT Pulse left off. Earlier in the day, Kate Czaplinski and Josh Fisher talked with Darien Times editor Susan Shultz, and Nutmeg Sports' own Rob Adams. Rob and Susan are nominated for an award for multimedia from the New England Newspaper and Press Association.

However, the show opened with Rob and Dave Stewart (another NENPA nominee) catching up on things in boys basketball. A few of the top seeds are almost set, but there are still a few teams with chances to lock up a spot in the playoffs.

New Canaan girls hockey coach Rich Bulan calls in to discuss the state of girls hockey. First up, Rob asks the coach about what has been learned since the 2015 state championship game. That game, between the ETB co-op and Simsbury, ended in a 2-2 tie after double overtime and put Connecticut in the national spotlight.

Coach Bulan also won his 300th game at New Canaan earlier in the week, and is looking forward to the upcoming FCIAC and state playoffs.

Susan joins Rob and Dave to review that 2015 girls hockey championship game, and the process that led to the award nomination.

The show finishes up with the status of girls basketball as the regular season gets ready to end.
