In my latest podcast over on Spotify, I review a busy first round slate from Monday night that included the Isles edging the Pens in two overtimes along with the Jets finishing off the McDavid/Draisaitl Oilers in an epic triple overtime to sweep Edmonton.
What went wrong for the Oilers and Pens? Can Sidney Crosby rally Pittsburgh at what will be an electric Nassau Coliseum for Game Six? The brilliant play of rookie goalies Ilya Sorokin and Spencer Knight, who at 20 made a memorable playoff debut by stopping the last 36 shots he faced to force Game Six against the Lightning.
The laser focused Cam Talbot who stole Game Five for the Wild in Vegas. Plus some Leafs and Habs. A cool story from my Devils production truck days in ’00-01. How great Marc-Andre Fleury could become with another Cup.
