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.

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.

About the Show
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.
