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?
