The final week of the regular season still has plenty left to be decided as the final make-or-break games are set to be played. Episode 55 kicks off with The Masters and the golf tournament that captured the guys attention this weekend. 

In Headlines, the Calgary Flames are a ‘hot’ topic as the Flames are eliminated from playoff contention. The guys examine how it all went wrong for Calgary despite the ‘summer of Brad’ off-season moves. Meanwhile, the Winnipeg Jets just need 1-point to clinch a playoff berth, but the chasing Nashville Predators are holding onto a glimmer of hope.

In the East, the Penguins, Panthers, and Islanders are fighting for the last seats at the dance. Maple Leafs cap gymnastics have left them playing with fire in their crease. The guys discuss EBUG Jett Alexander seeing game action, and if the ceremonial gesture might be a sign of things to come with the Leafs unable to call-up a goalie. Plus, which team would have the fastest turnaround with Bedard, and the uncertain playing future of Jonathan Toews.

Betano’s playoff betting odds have the Avalanche favoured to return to the Stanley Cup Final. But, do the Oilers have the best chance at taking out the defending champions? In the East, the Carolina Hurricanes are favoured ahead of the Tampa Bay Lightning, could this be an opportunity for a savvy bettor??

Every week the guys answer your Ask Ray & Dregs questions, and award FREE merch to lucky listeners! This week, topics include Habs trade targets, the relatively new role of sports psychologists, and whether the Bruins or McDavid’s season was more impressive. Plus, Ray talks underrated teammates, and Dregs recounts his time covering the Brandon Wheat Kings.
