It’s ‘Viva Las Vegas’ for Ray as he continues his NHL on ESPN duties, however his luck ran out both on the golf-course and at the blackjack tables so he’ll be sticking to hockey for Episode 67. Plenty to discuss as Ray & Dregs serve up another instalment of the pod!
In Headlines, the guys delve into the OVERTIME filled Conference Final matchups. The Golden Knights are in great shape with two consecutive OT wins at home, Ray discusses the depth that’s served the team all season, Eichel’s growth as a 200 foot player, and the success of Bruce Cassidy’s defensive system.
In the Eastern Conference, a tight battle between the Hurricanes and Panthers heads south to Florida with the Panthers holding all the momentum, being up 2-0. Matthew Tkachuk seems to have struck a perfect balance of ‘mixing it up’ while staying composed for his team. The guys discuss the back-to-back OT hero, Panthers captain Sasha Barkov’s highlight reel goal, and Sergei Bobrovsky holding down the fort.
Dregs talks the expectation of news on the sale of the Ottawa Senators this week, and what he’s hearing on the presumed announcement of Craig Conroy as the new Flames GM. Plus, the bizarre Kyle Dubas departure from the Maple Leafs front-office, if Dubas would’ve been better off waiting to hold a presser, and Brad Treliving interviewing for the vacant GM position.
Kris Abbott returns from getting his money’s worth on a Caribbean cruise to discuss possible money ‘plays’ on Betano.ca. Kris eyes the ‘going to OT’ bet hitting at 100% so far in the Conference finals, and why it’s still a good play moving forward. Plus, Conn Smythe odds and and Bobrovsky/Tkachuk winning MVP paying out at better odds than a Panthers Stanley Cup victory.
In Ask R+D, the guys answer your Q’s, and give away FREE merch to question-askers. This week, listeners ask about the player psyche of facing a ‘hot’ goaltender, who has a bigger advantage when coaches face former teams, and Dregs gets some advice on his ‘blackfly’ problem.
