Dale is back from Europe and I bring him up to speed on all the goings on in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Bruins dispatch the upstart Carolina Hurricanes in 4 games and now wait for the winner of the Blues and Sharks who are locked at 2 games each. The World Championships are under way.
Dennis King joins Mike to discuss the Ken Holland hiring and the playoffs in general. The Stanley Cup Semi-Finals have started – will the Storm Surge push through to the final? Will Joe Thornton finally win the Stanley Cup?
The Carolina Hurricanes’ Cinderella run continues after sweeping the New York Islanders in round 2. The Oilers seem to be on the cusp of hiring Ken Holland as GM and we get TSN 1260’s Tyler Yaremchuk to give us the lowdown.
Round 1 is complete and it’s the year of the underdog. With the Leafs bowing out early, is Mike Babcock done as Leafs’ Head Coach? Will Dubas be able to sign Marner and if so, what will he cost? Controversy in the San Jose / Vegas series. We look at the Round 2 series.
Tampa Bay Lightning with one of the best records in history in the regular season lose in 4 straight. Calgary Flames out in 5. In the 4 remaining series, the lower seed is in the lead. PLUS The Prodigal Son returns as Steve Yzerman comes back to Detroit.
Wow. We’re 3 games into the first round and everything is happening already! Kadri is gonna get suspended! Who’s at fault? Blue Jackets destroying the Lightning. Who saw that coming? Islanders have Penguins on the brink!
