As a former player with the Senators, Stars, and Blue Jackets, Marc Methot defended the best hockey players in the world. Now, he spends his time dealing with ‘trolls’ in his mentions! The TSN Broadcaster joined the guys to chat going from ‘chirping’ in the back of the team bus to battles on Twitter, his opinion of ‘inconsistent’ officiating in the NHL playoffs, and the incoming storm of Maple Leaf fans ready to pounce if the Leafs win their first-round match-up. Plus, Marc’s journey to the ‘show’ from the London Knights, playing with the skilled & unpredictable Erik Karlsson, and more!
In Headlines, the guys recount a wild Maple Leafs comeback, and the uncharacteristic struggles of Lightning goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy.

The guys round-out Headlines with a discussion on the officiating in the playoffs, fan frustration, and the high-stakes of every call.
