Earlier this evening, I did a hockey podcast on some hot topics over on my Hard Hits Network. It went into overtime!
Among the topics covered include the NHL Draft Lottery debacle, Artemi Panarin, a classic series flashback from 1993 between the Leafs and Kings where Gretzky outshined Gilmour.
Plus a closer look at the Rangers vs Hurricanes preliminary match-up. How the teams stack up. Who could be the unsung heroes in the best of five series. What are some keys to a Rangers victory?
In overtime, I take a closer look at the careers of Henrik Lundqvist and Carey Price. Both very similar. Which player had the better supporting cast?
Plus more on Alexis Lafreniere. Listen below!
