7:15 Pierre McGuire – NHL on NBC Analyst

Last night’s double overtime game between Chicago/LA proves once again “why this is the best game on the planet.” Michal Handzus had a very strong performance last night & was rewarded for his strong play by netting the overtime winner. Most people figured that this game was pretty much over once Tanner Pearson scored, however Chicago proved once again why they are the defending Stanley Cup champions. Now the biggest question is whether the Hawks can sustain this pace for another two games. The New York Rangers aren’t concerned about Henrik Lundqvist’s ability to bounce back, instead the focus for New York is maintaining discipline. Goaltender Carey Price continues his aggressive rehab however he is still a long-shot to return this series. It will also be interesting to see what kind of impact Brandon Prust will have after returning from a two game suspension. Alex Galchenyuk should benefit from Montreal’s spirited post-season run, but would probably be better served shifting back to his natural position at centre.

7:45 Leafs Breakfast: Darren Dreger – NHL Insider

The Montreal Canadiens will have their hands full tonight vs. the New York Rangers & must find a way to overcome the emotional high from game five on Tuesday night. It’s still too early to determine if the Maple Leafs would be interested in Mike Richards (if he is bought out by the Kings this summer) There is no confirmation that this move is imminent & another Richards (Bradley) could also be a buyout target in the summer. The salary cap is expected to increase this off-season & it will be interesting to see how teams respond to this challenge because every GM has a “potential buyout candidate” on their team.

8:15 Steve Simmons – Sun Media & The Reporters

The Toronto Blue Jays are playing terrific baseball at this junction of the season. Anthony Gose’s stunning catch was simply a thing of beauty. What we are seeing right now is “element to the offense that weren’t present last year” This team just has so much depth at the 1-9 positions, how often does someone see a walk off bunt to win the game? Last night’s game had a real playoff like atmosphere to it & the city is really starting to rally around the Jays. The Jays will have some tough decisions to make with Colby Rasmus after Anthony Gose’s stellar play at centre field. There has been very little trade chatter thus far because most teams are still focusing on the next months draft. It will be very interesting to see what happens with Mike Richards this off-season because “no one wants a fourth line centre making that kind of money”

8:45 Ron Duguay – Former Player & MSG Network Analyst

It’s been an absolute thrill soaking up the Rangers playoff run because the entire city of New York has really embraced this team. The Rangers should have an advantage tonight in front of a boisterous/raucous home crowd. Alain Vigneault’s “calming presence” has spread throughout the entire organization & the players have really reaped the benefits. The Ryan Callahan for Martin St. Louis trade was initially scrutinized however Marty has been a major part of the Rangers playoff run. Expect New York to close out the series tonight.

Recap:

5:45 Pierre McGuire – NHL on NBC Analyst

The Montreal Canadiens were a desperate bunch last night however they still “found a way to get the job done.” There is no question that Rangers defenseman John Moore should be suspended especially since Brendan Prust was suspended two games for his late hit on Derek Stepan. Alain Vigneault’s decision not to put Henrik Lundqvist back in net wasn’t that shocking because his star goaltender will need to get some rest if this series goes the distance. Now the focus shifts towards game five in Chicago tonight. The Blackhawks are faced with an uphill climb & will need all members on deck in order to get back into this series. Drew Doughty is playing at a whole new level & has really been buoyed by a strong performance at the Olympics. Joel Quenneville is the prototypical “players coach” & is one of the best communicators in the game. Marian Hossa & Patrick Sharp will need to elevate their game in order to get back into this series, but does Chicago have enough fuel left in the tank? At this point there could be a slight chance Carey Price returns if Montreal is able to make it to the Stanley Cup finals.

6:15 Leafs Breakfast: Darren Dreger – NHL Insider

Henrik Lundqvist had an average performance last night which left head coach Alain Vigneault in a difficult spot. The Montreal Canadiens have adopted a “never say die” mentality which has served them extremely well throughout this playoff run. Rene Bourque has been a wildly inconsistent player throughout his career however his spirited post-season play has won over the Montreal faithful. John Moore’s hit on Dale Weise wasn’t as late as the Prust/Stepan altercation however there could be a one game suspension if deemed appropriate (depending on the severity of the Weise injury).

8:15 Sergio Momesso – TSN 690 Colour Commentator

The Montreal Canadiens proved once again showed why they have been one of the most resilient teams during these playoffs. At this point we should probably expect a 1-2 game suspension for the Moore/Weise altercation, however it’s unclear whether the hearing is in-person or over the phone. The Rene Bourque for Mike Cammalleri trade appears to have benefited Montreal because “Bourque is playing his best hockey of the playoffs.” The bottom line is that Bourque had one of the best games of his career & finally managed to “put it all together.” Goaltender Carey Price appears to be slowly making a recovery however it’s pretty obvious that Montreal has rallied behind Dustin Tokarski. Is a game seven in the cards?

8:45 Joe Micheletti – NY Rangers Colour Analyst (Covering Chicago/LA)

The Los Angeles Kings are playing like a completely different team which makes you wonder “how they fell behind so many times in the playoffs?” This team had an amazingly quick turnaround after a difficult series vs. San Jose & Anaheim. The biggest key for head coach is Darryl Sutter is making sure he gets the Doughty/Toews match up whenever possible. Trade addition Marian Gaborik has fit in like a glove because of the Kings “self-policing culture” that is instilled in the locker room.

Recap:

7:15 Pierre McGuire – NHL on NBC Analyst

It’s difficult to predict whether PK Subban would become captain next season however “this could definitely happen at some point down the road.” The bigger question is “how would Subban handle these off ice distractions?” The Chicago Blackhawks had a very hard time keeping up with the Los Angeles Kings last night & seems to be losing far too many battles away from the puck. Defenseman Robyn Regehr appears to be inching towards a return however you have to wonder if Darryl Sutter would alter his lineup after the Kings spirited performance in back to back games. Los Angeles is a great team because their defense has so much size, immense depth at centre, & have one of the premier goaltenders in the league. The acquisition of Barry Trotz should add an element of credibility to the Washington Capitals & it will be interesting to see how his relationship with Alexander Ovechkin develops.

7:45 Leafs Breakfast: Darren Dreger & Steve Simmons

The Los Angles Kings raced out to a 4-0 start before the Blackhawks showed a little bit of fight. Despite the win head coach Darryl Sutter was not happy with his teams performance because they will need a much better effort in order to eliminate the Chicago Blackhawks. Sutter is definitely an underrated coach (three conference finals appearance) & at this point “you have to think that the Blackhawks are done.” Chicago will definitely have some tough decisions to make next summer when Kane/Toews will be eligible for free agency? The Washington Capitals have completely restructured their front office & it will be fascinating to see how the relationship between Trotz/Ovechkin progresses throughout the course of the year. Brian Gionta has had an up & down season however the bigger problem is that the Rangers best players are stepping up offensively (Kreider/Hagelin/Nash) which isn’t the case with Montreal.

8:15 Dirk Hayhurst – TSN 1050 MLB Analyst

It’s difficult to call the Blue Jays the “surprise team of 2014” because they were always an offensively gifted team. Many people felt that if the pitching improved this team would be able to compete, however the bigger surprise has been the enormous amount of injuries that have plagued the American League East. Clay Buchholz has gone from a CY Young contender in 2013 to liability in 2014. The bottom line is that even if the Jays pitching was “average” they should still be in contention once fall rolls around. Remember the Jays were plagues with injuries last year (Bautista, Reyes, Lawrie) & Ricky Romero was actually considered a legitimate option in 2013. It would be really risky for the Jays to acquire Samardzija/Price because both could be free agents at the end of the season, thus you’ve paid a very high price for a rental.

8:30 Mike Johnson – NHL on TSN Analyst

The Chicago Blackhawks have had a very difficult past couple of games however this team has always had the mentality that they will “be able to rise above/persevere.” At this point it looks like the grind of a very long season seems to have finally taken its toll. If Chicago does head into the offseason earlier than expected they will probably turn their focus towards Toews/Kane. If Chicago does keep both players, does this spell the end of Patrick Sharp? Thomas Vanek has received a lot of abuse however Gionta/Desharnais haven’t been too spectacular either. Gionta is past his prime & isn’t really considered a goal scorer at this stage in his career, & Desharnais is still trying to establish himself as an NHL player. With Gionta’s contract up you have to wonder if PK Subban eventually becomes the captain or is Josh Gorges the more likely candidate?

Recap:

7:15 Pierre McGuire – NHL on NBC Analyst

The Montreal Canadiens have done a very good job of preventing the Rangers from getting secondary scoring chances vs. goaltender Dustin Tokarski. Tokarski is probably still “a little too green” to be considered a legitimate NHL starter however he is definitely on the right path. Martin St. Louis has had a very difficult season & the team seems to have really rallied around his presence. New York was lucky to win last night despite some very undisciplined play vs. Montreal. Tonight’s focus now shifts towards the Los Angeles Kings & Chicago Blackhawks. Chicago must do a better job of containing Los Angeles” centre ice depth (Kopitar, Richards, Stoll) & the Kings are really starting to gain some traction in this series.

7:30 Mike Gartner – Former NHL Player

Unfortunately Mr. Gartner was never able to win the Stanley cup & actually got traded from the New York Rangers at the 1994 trade deadline. The bottom line is that Montreal is “a few bounces away” from having this series tied at two games apiece & must use this motivation heading into game five on Tuesday. Typically the team that “whether the storm & rises above” ends up winning the championship come once June rolls around. Fitness in hockey has really changed over the past few decades because most players do not take more than 2-3 weeks off all season. Playing in Phoenix was an absolute treat/unique experience especially since the team had just moved from Winnipeg. The problem for the Coyotes is that the team chose to build the arena in Glendale which really alienated the fan base.

7:45 Leafs Breakfast: Darren Dreger – NHL Insider

There’s still plenty of work left for the other twenty eight teams that aren’t participating in the NHL playoffs. The Montreal Canadiens have to be thrilled with Dustin Tokarski however the team must be “careful not to overreact & ruin his confidence.” Tokarski has done a great job of keeping his team in it, because this team was pretty much written off after Carey Price’s series ending injury in game one. The Canadiens have a wonderful asset (Tokarski) that could be parlayed into an asset during this year’s draft. Rick Nash shouldn’t have received a penalty for last night’s incident vs. Tokarski because he was simply “doing his job.” Martin St. Louis has proved to be a valuable addition for the Rangers at the trade deadline & seems to have overcome a very slow start. Would the Rangers have made it this far without the services of St. Louis?

8:30 David Hearn – Canadian Professional Golfer

It’s been a strong start to the 2014 season because Mr. Hearn has done a much better job of keeping the ball in play & trying to aim for more fairways/low risk shots. Now it’s about keeping focused & trying to “put yourself in the best position possible come summertime.” Golf is actually a pretty physical sport however Mr. Hearn has been able to avoid the injury bug as he approaches his mid thirties. The New York Rangers have been a treat to watch this postseason & it would be great to see a Kings vs. Rangers Stanley Cup Final.
