Sam Bennett is an absolute MENACE to play against, and if you need evidence of that, look no further than THE HIT on Jaccob Slavin in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final. Bennett spoke to Dregs on the monumental opportunity of advancing to the final round of the playoffs, the confidence a HOT Sergei Bobrovsky gives the Panthers, and Matthew Tkachuk's 'clutch' gene. Plus, his legendary playoff beard, and pro-golfer Brooks Koepka's 'P's' fandom.

In Headlines, the guys discuss the Florida Panthers clinching a Stanley Cup finals berth, and Matthew Tkachuk’s MVP calibre performance in the 3rd round. Game 4 of Panthers vs. Canes was not without controversy as a late Jordan Staal penalty resulted in the Tkachuk game-winner with 4.3 seconds left. Ray voices his displeasure in the call after a high-stick wasn’t called against the Panthers prior to the tripping penalty. 

Jamie Benn may have just exited the Western Conference Finals as the Stars captain will sit for a 2-game suspension. The guys discuss Benn’s cross-check on Mark Stone, the decision by Benn to skip media scrums until the next day, and his strange comments on the obvious cross-check. Ray gives his ice-level-view of a disastrous Game 3 for the Stars (and their fans), and how Dallas can stave off elimination in Game 4.

The guys wrap headlines with news from around the NHL, including the Pittsburgh Penguins' interest in Kyle Dubas, if Brendan Shanahan is overstepping with his assurances to the ‘core-4’ in Toronto, and Craig Conroy’s first big decision as Flames GM.

Kris Abbott takes the episode off for a ‘working vacation’ and the guys chat Betano’s Stanley Cup odds. Ray has a front-row seat to the Vegas Golden Knights and thinks another sweep is in order. He also makes his pick for the winner in a prospective Panthers/Golden Knights final.
