Kicking Back
00:29:12

Elliotte is back in the car! The Battle of Alberta lived up to the hype. Jeff and Elliotte react to the Oilers closing out an absolutely wild series…and the controversial disallowed Blake Coleman goal (2:30). Did Markstrom lose the series for Calgary (6:15)? Was something up with Calgary’s top line (8:45)? The Flames are now left wondering ‘what’s next?’. In the East, Carolina players channel their inner Brind'Amour and keep the home winning streak alive with a big win over New York (12:25), and Trochek finally gets a goal (14:45). 

Despite a huge game and an incredible goal from Nathan MacKinnon, St Louis pulls off the win in overtime to stay alive (17:25). The guys wonder why have players stopped trying to cross centre ice before shooting for the empty net (20:15), and discuss Tyler Bozak earning his $750k in one shot with the huge game-winner (22:15) to force a Game 6. In non-playoff news, Barry Trotz, John Tortorella and others go through the interview process in Philly as the coaching carousel starts to spin (24:45), and Rick Westhead reports on some awful allegations surrounding hockey Canada (26:45).

A Sweep And Some Tension
00:36:23

Jeff and Elliotte are still in the studio! Jeff still doesn't have power, so the guys are still recording in person following Game 4 in the Battle of Alberta. Jeff and Elliotte discuss ‘the goal’ on Mike Smith (0:30), and the boys recall some historic comparables. Next up, the Carolina and NYR series: they discuss the Canes' struggles on the road in the playoffs, some great play from Andrew Copp and Alexis Lafreniere (6:00) and another huge hit from Jacob Trouba on Max Domi in Game 4 (9:00). There is a preview of the possible series-clinching Game 5 between St Louis and Colorado, as well Kadri’s response to the brutal online and on-ice hate he has received since his collision with Jordan Binnington (11:45).

The guys also give their reactions to Tampa Bay sweeping Florida and the quietly brilliant coaching of Jon Cooper, as well as the grit + skill combo that makes TB so successful (15:20). After their Presidents' Trophy season was followed by a quick exit, what’s next for the Panthers? What is the future of Bobrovsky and Joe Thornton? How are Florida going to pay Barkov, Huberdeau and everyone else moving forward…and where the heck were they the night before Game 4?

There’s $400 on the line. Best of luck to the contestants!
