The 4th Line Hockey Podcast #332 – The 2021 NHL Playoffs 2nd Round Preview

Fresh off the Toronto Maple Leafs’ loss to the Montreal Canadiens, we look back on the series, particularly how bad Mitch Marner was, how much the Leafs were in their own heads, the different ways the John Tavares loss effected them and what changes Kyle Dubas needs to make going forward.

Montreal is set to face the Winnipeg Jets now. With Winnipeg being a more similar fit to Montreal than Toronto, what can we expect from this game? Will Blake Wheeler be the key to cracking the Montreal code? Can Carey Price out duel Connor Hellebuyck?

The Colorado Avalanche scored a touchdown on the Vegas Golden Knights? Was Robin Lehner over Marc-Andre Fleury the reason? With Ryan Reaves‘ suspension, was it enough? Does his style of play fit into this series? And just how good is Nathan MacKinnon?

Many series do, but the Tampa Bay Lightning and Carolina Hurricanes might be the biggest special teams decided series of this years playoffs.

The Boston Bruins ruined Ilya Sorokin in Game 1. Were the New York Islanders right to go with Semyon Varlamov in Game 2? Who should be in net moving forward?

All this and more on episode 332 of the 4th Line Hockey Podcast!
