Kevin Kurz of Comcast Sports Bay Area clued us in on all the latest happenings with the San Jose Sharks, including new details on the knee injury Tomas Hertl suffered vs. the LA Kings.

Mike Goldberg, the voice of the UFC, stopped by to share many memories from his 16-year career with the company. He also talked about calling hockey games, his friendship with many NHL stars, the Philadelphia Flyers and a preview of UFC 168 featuring Anderson Silva v Chris Weidman and Ronda Rousey v Miesha Tate.

Isaiah Mustafa, aka the Old Spice guy, dropped in to talk about his love for hockey, playing in the Rose Bowl, how to get over a broken heart and more.
