The 4th Line Hockey Podcast #289 – The Playoff Kickoff

The NHL postseason is here!

We review all of the action from the first two days of the NHL playoffs, including:

What is hockey like without fans? Is the intensity of regular playoffs still possible? Do the round robin games have any intensity?

The Matt Dumba diversity speech and the Hockey Diversity Alliance.

Mark Scheifele‘s injury at the hands of Matthew Tkachuk. Was there intent to it?

Drake Caggiula was suspended 1 game for his hit on Tyler Ennis. Was it a fair suspension?

There was a trend of a lot of penalties being called. Was it deserving? Will the trend continue?

Will any of the teams that lost game 1 come back and win the series?

All this and more on episode 289 of the 4th Line Hockey Podcast!

The 4th Line Podcast is a weekly hockey podcast hosted by Carl Landra and Nick Seguin. Every week they share their unique and fun take on what is happening in the world of hockey. While they don’t take themselves too seriously, they have a typical no 4th line attitude: what they lack in finesse, they make for in being willing to go to the corners and work hard to get the job done.
