Playoffs? Or, planning trips to tropical destinations?? Ray recounts the dilemma from his playing days as he caught a teammate counting ‘off-season chickens’ before they hatched… Could players on ‘chasing’ teams be cancelling their travel plans?? 

In Headlines, the guys break down the playoff-races, most notably the Wild-Card battle between the Calgary Flames and Winnipeg Jets. Even with the Jets game-in-hand, there is cause for concern after the Flames took two points in a head-to-head battle. 

In the Eastern Conference, Ray sides with his former team and a hunch that the Islanders will do enough to hang onto playoff position. With the Panthers and Penguins battling it out; Ray asks if Pittsburgh could be heading to rebuild territory soon. Plus, the guys discuss early Stanley Cup contenders, and where Ryan O’Reilly will fit in his return to the Leafs lineup.
