Officiating was the topic of the week in the NHL! Tim Peel made official what we all suspected: that referee’s don’t call the games fairly. Did the punishment fit the crime? Can any changes be expected from the league when it comes to calling penalties in the future?
Eric Staal was dealt to the Montreal Canadiens. Does this mean that they think they’re a lock for the playoffs? Will Cole Caufield be joining the team?
The New York Rangers have entered the Elimination Station. After fully breaking Carter Hart, what is next for them? With a fist full of prospects, do they need to change anything to get back into the playoffs, or just keep letting Alexis Lafreniere and Kaapo Kakko develop?

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 4th line attitude: what they lack in finesse, they make up for in being willing to go to the corners and work hard to get the job done.
