This week on Hockey Wives, Tiffany Parros visits Maripier Morin (a.k.a. "MP") in Montreal, giving the two sassy friends a chance to reconnect (and ruffle each other's feathers). No-nonsense Tiffany offers relationship advice, but it seems like MP isn’t quite ready to hear it. Maripier, on the other hand, doesn't grasp Tiffany's new lifestyle as George preps for retirement – which bothers Tiffany to no end.

Meanwhile, in Calgary, Kodette LaBarbera gets some much-needed quality time with hubby Jason, surprising him with a pet cat he adamantly didn't want (“Whatever! He doesn't live here,” she explains) and a microwavable meatloaf he doesn't eat. ("He knows I don't cook," she says.) Overall, their family time together is sweet but short-lived as Jason has to head back on the road.
Back in Iowa, Emilie Blum and her husband continue to struggle with their precarious position in the hockey world, as Jonathan considers moving to Europe. Finally, in sunny LA, Nicole Brown’s husband, Dustin Brown, tries to coach his wife during a friendly women’s game – though he gets a bit distracted by his own fans.
