The Arizona Coyotes were punished for illegal training of junior players. Was the penalty too much?
Every series is currently at 3-1. Can any of these teams make it back? Does Boston miss Tuukka Rask more than they’d like to admit or has Tampa just figured it out? What team is the “Better Columbus”? What is wrong with the Colorado Avalanche and why is it Cale Makar’s fault?

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.
