'Blue Mountain State' 2.10 'Hockey' Review - Starpulse

I was a pretty successful hockey goalie once upon a time, which is probably why I get so much joy out of watching Alex Moran think he can be the backup goalie for the BMS hockey team. The guy who believes football practice needs naptime thinks he can play my position?  It's almost as if I could say "I told you so."

From the moment they step (or fall, as the case may be) on the ice, it's clear that Alex and Radon are both woefully out of their element. Of course, they're not exactly aspiring to greatness, just trying to avoid offseason football conditioning requirements, even if it means bringing the hockey team down to their low standards. This blows up in their faces, as the hockey players start taking after them. Alex is horrified as he realizes he's essentially been beaten with his own modus operandi. "I accidentally taught him everything he knows," he says of the incumbent goalie and seems resigned to his fate, before an irate Coach Daniels pulls the equivalent of a deus ex machina. This is not the funniest episode of BMS, but maybe Alex will think twice about his influence on other people. Oh, who am I kidding? Probably not.
