OTPP: Vegas Golden Knights Introduction, Conference Finals Analysis, Memorial Cup, and More
Last Word on Sports is proud to present their hockey podcast, On the Power Play with Ben and Colton. Join Ben Kerr and Colton Praill each week as they take a look at the Hockey World focusing on the big issues of the NHL and elsewhere.
The boys discuss the strange Vegas Golden Knights introduction for Game 3 of the Western Conference Final. The entire production was weird, but brings up memories of past NHL disasters. Colton and Ben then move on to discussing the series. What are the Winnipeg Jets and Golden Knights doing in the series? Who has the edge? What will happen next
Eastern Conference Final
Moving to the east, the boys look at the Washington Capitals and the Tampa Bay Lightning. How did the Capitals build a 2-0 series lead and what did the Lightning do to reverse the trend in Game 3? Who holds the edge going forward?
What do the four conference finals teams have in common? Do the performances of Marc-Andre Fleury in Vegas, and Alex Ovechkin finally end the myths of choking/clutch forever? What NHL rumours have the boys intrigued for the summer?
The Boys discuss the upcoming Memorial Cup in Regina. What are they looking for? How will it affect the NHL Draft? Who will be the players to watch? Who will win the tournament? The Regina Pats haven’t played in six weeks, can they get it together for the tournament?
Lastly the boys discuss recent expansion news out of the NWHL. What does a new franchise in Minnesota mean? How will the Whitecaps do? What does this mean for a potential NWHL-CWHL merger? What is next for the growth of women’s hockey?
All that and more as we go on the power play.
