  1. As you heard on the show this week we’re doing a Playoff edition of the Puck Podcast Picks. Here’s how it works – post which team you think will win each series and in how many games. If you get the team right you’ll get two points and if you get the # of games right you’ll get a bonus point. If you don’t get the team right you get zero points for that series. Here are the series:

    Western Conference
    #1 Vancouver vs. #8 Los Angeles
    #2 St. Louis vs. #7 San Jose
    #3 Phoenix vs. #6 Chicago

  19. Hey guys,

    In regards to the most recent show:

    During the Flyers/Penguins brawl fest in which Lavy went off on Granato and Bylsma, I think something goes unremarked. While the Vitale hit on Briere was one hundred percent clean and a beautiful hit, it is one that should never have been made. NBC barely covered the hit that Vitale laid on Grossman, however if you can go back and rewatch it, it’s apparent that it’s a purposeful knee on knee hit. Grossman had a history of knee injuries, and I’m sure Vitale was cognizant of that when he went after him. Also, while Crosby did get crosschecked by Schenn (should have been a penalty most likely), what NBC didn’t show (or mention) was that earlier that period, Crosby crosschecked Schenn directly in the back and knocked him down to no call.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if in addition to what you guys said, the fact that Vitale and Crosby were both attempting to deliver dirty hits against an opponent they are going to have to face in the first round.
