Eddie and Carla hit it off and start dating. Carla is excited but anxious that something will go wrong to ruin the relationship. On the day Eddie publicly declares Carla as his girlfriend, a game against the Flyers goes into OT, and as soon as Carla blows him a kiss of good luck, Eddie's winning streak comes to an end.

Never Love a Goalie: Part 1 (#5.16)
22 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

One day Eddie Lebec, a hockey goalie, comes to Cheers and Carla talks to him. He gives her tickets for his game. She takes Frasier with her who ends up getting into a fight. Eddie comes back and starts dating Carla, even her kids don't bother him. But the next game night, on the game he dedicates to Carla he loses.

Fun episode. Carla dating this goalie had many great moments. Like the whole story about him passing by and spit, so romantic! Although I already feel bad for her as I don't think it will end well.

Frasier is a hilarious character. Him being upset over Bobo was great (I would be too, love animals), so was his getting into the fight story, I wish we saw it on screen.
