  1. Great show as usual! Really awesome that the Capitals made it. It’s like you guys said, any fan of hockey would want to see the Caps in the playoff. Well of course, maybe not the Carolina fans, but hey.. Luckily the deciding game was during the weekend and I managed to watch it, and it was a really good game! Well. Looks to be quite a few great matchups, should be interesting to see how it all turns out. Looking forward to Tuesday’s show!

  2. Well.. I’m not a huge fan of this weeks show because it seems that the whole league just praises Ovechkin now and doesn’t give a crap about Carolina anymore. I hope the NHL is happy now that we are eliminated.. After spending the entire season in the third seed. It really hurts to be a canes fan right now. Eddie’s power play made me cry 🙁

  3. Hi guys. You really do a great job of bringing nhl news to those of us who can’t watch every game but still want to know what’s happening.

    One note of clarification. This week Doug commented on the long delay between the Regional Finals in the NCAA Hockey Tournament and the Frozen Four. The reason for this is that the NCAA doesn’t want the Frozen Four to conflict with the NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Four. Therefore we have to wait nearly two weeks to see the Frozen Four but thankfully it will be broadcast on ESPN2.

  4. Ok, so I was hoping Washington would make the playoffs, but people are giving them too much credit. Just look at their last six opponents. Atlanta, Florida and Tampa Bay twice each. I know every team had divisional games to finish the season, but Carolina lost games they should have won. Washington, or any decent high school team, should have been expected to win those final six games. I would not be surprised at all if Philly advances, and I’d pick them myself if Martin Biron had some experience.
