Florida Panthers' star goaltender Roberto Luongo and ex-Winnipeg Jets head coach Claude Noel are joining NHL on TSN's first round coverage of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The NHL on TSN guest analysts have each signed on for back-to-back appearances, with Noel confirmed for April 25-26 and Luongo for April 27-28.
Luongo and Noel are appearing alongside NHL on TSN's acclaimed panel of host James Duthie, Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, and analysts Jeff O'Neill and Jamie McLennan.
Noel, one of the NHL's most quotable coaches before his dismissal by the Jets this season, brings his outspoken analysis to the TSN Studio from April 25-26, as first revealed Monday in an exclusive interview with Winnipeg Free Press sports columnist and TSN Radio 1290 in Winnipeg host Gary Lawless.
With a unique sense of humour that makes him a must-follow on Twitter, Luongo is a fan-favourite on and off the ice. The two-time Olympic gold medallist adds his insight to the NHL on TSN panel from April 27-28.
