Recap:

Mike Giardi, Comcast Boston:

Brad Marchand really does have a punk-like way of playing, and at times, the Bruins have been frustrated, but for the most part, they’ve been able to get him to play how they want him to. Carey Price played very well last night, but it seems like Bruins really missed on a lot of golden opportunities, and you have to expect them correct that as soon as Game 2.

Matt Devlin, Play by Play Voice of the Toronto Raptors:

The Raptors will be in tough tonight, but the Brooklyn crowd has been consistently disappointing. Terrence Ross has shown a little bit of momentum in the last few games, but he’s still leaving a lot to be desired on the offensive end of the floor.



Scott Ferguson, TSN 1050

Jose Reyes’ contract is a little bit scary at this point, and they really need Jose Reyes to start producing. He definitely has the talent, but he needs to turn it around soon. J.A Happ has been given a spot start on Monday, and between Happ and McGowan, we could see Stroman up really soon if they continue to struggle. There’s an urgency from the front office to win, and getting Stroman up will play a role in it.

Jamal Mayers, 2013 Stanley Cup Champ, NHL Network Analyst

Montreal really utilized their speed well last night, and that’s the best way they can counter the size and skill of the Bruins. Watching the Leafs this year, this is a team that got away with a lot, and the underlying issues were masked for a lot of the season, and that clearly came to a head towards the end of the year. Duncan Keith, and the rest of the Blackhawks as a whole, have an end goal and that’s all about winning. They’re not concerned about numbers, they’re concerned about the score at the end of the game favouring them.

Kevin Pelton, ESPN Insider

Kyle Lowry should be able to hold up over the long term because of his build, and there really is no comparison to Allen Iverson because of the differences in size between the 2. The criticisms of Kevin Durant from the Oklahoman were pretty unfounded, and he really proved them wrong with his excellent performance last night.

April 30: Show In Review

The Canadian Press

Bob and Matt are joined by Cody Hodgson and Craig Button to talk about the pressure of playing in a Game 7 and what a loss could mean for Sharks head coach Todd McLellan, and Scoop Jackson checks in to discuss why he thinks the Raptors will prevail in their series with the Nets.

Recap:

Cody Hodgson, Buffalo Sabres

Hodgson avoids texting his friends from around the NHL during the playoffs, as he doesn’t want to distract them in this important time of year. He also reflected back on being a member of the Vancouver Canucks, and how the San Jose Sharks must be feeling the pressure being on the brink of blowing a 3-0 series lead.


Craig Button, NHL on TSN

Button says that Todd McLellan is one of the league’s top coaches, but if the Sharks blow this 3-0 lead, it might have to start with the Head Coach. Luck is a big factor in getting to the Stanley Cup, in avoiding injury, matchups, and favourable bounces. Craig says that the Flyers were able to use a lot of their speed and skill up front last night, but you’re not going to change anything materially between Game 6 and 7, especially considering how close the games are to one another.

Scoop Jackson, ESPN.com

Scoop says that all season long, the Bulls were the heart and soul of the city with what they achieved with what they have on the roster, and the fans really changed their tune quickly. Scoop says it was a great day for Adam Silver and the NBA, and he really put the owners on notice for how his tenure as Commissioner is going to run. Energy will override and supersede experience, and nowhere is that more true with the Raptors over the Nets, who Scoop believes will win in 6 games.





April 29: Show In Review

The Canadian Press

Bob and Matt tee up what may be a critical start for Dustin McGowan tonight versus the Royals with Gregor Chisholm, and Dave Feschuk checks in to discuss how the Raptors will need another clutch performance for Kyle Lowry against the Nets in Game 5.

Hour 1:

Hour 1 of Macko & Cauz with Bob Mackowycz and Matthew Cauz, joined by Dave Feschuk. Hour 1 Audio

Hour 2:

Hour 2 of Macko & Cauz with Bob Mackowycz and Matthew Cauz, joined by MLB.com's Gregor Chisholm. Hour 2 Audio

Hour 3:

Hour 3 of Macko & Cauz, with Bob Mackowycz and Matthew Cauz, joined by former Raptor Michael Bradley. Hour 3 Audio


Recap:

Dave Feschuk, Toronto Star

Feschuk spoke with Charles Oakley, who asserted that the team with more athleticism is likely to win the series, and the Raptors certainly have that advantage. The Raptors have been having success on the pick-and-roll against Kevin Garnett, and he’s not playing at the level people expected him to play. Dave believes that DeMar DeRozan doesn’t have the ability to take over games in the latter stages, and that the onus will fall on Kyle Lowry in that regard.

Neil Greenberg, ESPN/Washington Post

Greenberg says that it’s not a good idea to hire Wayne Gretzky if you’re the Washington Capitals. When you’re one of the greatest players of all-time, it can be difficult to relate to some of the lesser players. Greenberg says that Ovechkin will never be a defensive stalwart, so you need to tailor your team to fit his style, not the other way around. They can’t win with this hybrid style, half offence, half defence, it just won’t work.

Gregor Chisholm, MLB.com

Chisholm believes that this is a make or break start for McGowan tonight, and we very well could see Marcus Stroman if McGowan falters. We’ve seen Brett Lawrie have a very odd season, as the power numbers have been impressive, but the batting average certainly hasn’t been there. Gregor says they’ll take Lawrie’s power stats for sure, but his batting average needs to improve.

Marc Moser, Colorado Avalanche Broadcaster

Moser says he has been continually impressed with Nathan MacKinnon all year, and his progression both as a player on and off the ice. When MacKinnon came to the team initially, there were expectations that he was going to be on the small side, but his physical fitness has been amongst the most impressive aspects of his game.


Michael Bradley, Former Toronto Raptor

Bradley looked back on being drafted by the Raptors, and how thrilled he was when his name was called. Bradley also looked back on playing with Vince Carter, Antonio Davis and other Raptors of years past. He also chatted about what it’s like playing basketball in Europe.





April 28: Show In Review

The Canadian Press

Bob and Matt recap the Raptors’ Game 4 road win versus the Nets with Jack Armstrong and Howard Beck, and chat with James Duthie about the pressure the Sharks are now facing after failing to put away the Kings.

Audio:

Hour 1:

Hour 1 of Macko & Cauz with Bob Mackowycz and Matthew Cauz, joined by Jack Armstrong to talk about the Raptors' Game 4 victory. Hour 1 Audio

Hour 2:

Hour 2 of Macko & Cauz with Bob Mackowycz and Matthew Cauz, joined by Liam McHugh & James Duthie. Hour 2 Audio

Hour 3:

Hour 3 of Macko & Cauz, with Bob Mackowycz and Matthew Cauz, joined by Howard Beck and Michael Landsberg. Hour 3 Audio


Recap:

Jack Armstrong, NBA on TSN

Jack says that the Raptors really handled the adversity well last night, we saw a lot of resolve from the team, and the way they conducted themselves in a high pressure situation was very important. Armstrong expects to see Terrence Ross stay in the starting lineup, he played some strong defence against Deron Williams, and ultimately, he just didn’t make a shot. Finally, Jack says that the city of Toronto is a sleeping giant, it has the potential of being a top NBA market sustained for a long period of time.

Liam McHugh, Host of the NHL on NBC

Liam says that Jonathan Toews might be the best young leader in all professional sports, and he’s just an incredible player in the postseason. This Blackhawks team is starting to look scary good. Someone is going to throw a ton of money at Ryan Miller, and it’ll come down to what the Blues are willing to pay. Ultimately, McHugh sees the Blues moving on from Ryan Miller, in spite of the heavy cost they paid to get him.

James Duthie, Host of the NHL on TSN

James was slightly surprised that the Flames went with Brad Treliving as opposed to one of the Toronto guys (Loiselle or Poulin). Duthie believes that Shanahan will bring some guys in, and in spite of the rumours that the Leafs Asst. GM’s could be up for gigs elsewhere, it would not be shocking to see them retained and others brought in. Finally, Duthie asserts that a loss in this series for the Sharks would be almost impossible to come back from. It would be the most remarkable comeback of them all.

Howard Beck, Bleacher Report

Beck says that the personality of the Nets has always been a little bit underwhelming, and while Pierce and Garnett have their moments, they’re just not the kind of team that puts a stranglehold on you. If the NBA wants to get rid of Donald Sterling, Beck asserts that the other 29 owners have to work in cohesion to get that done.


Michael Landsberg, Off The Record

Landsberg says he’d keep the Coach and the direction that the St. Louis Blues are going in, it’s just about the bad luck of a draw with the Blackhawks, who are as good as anyone in the NHL.
