The First Round Grind Is Setting In

32 Thoughts: The Podcast

29-04-2024 • 55 mins

Jeff Marek and Elliotte Friedman open this edition of the 32 Thoughts podcast by talking about the Oilers gritty win over the Kings in Game 4 to take a 3-1 series lead. They also explore what might happen with the LA Kings if they bow out to the Oilers for a third straight season. Then, they talk about the Vancouver Canucks' epic late game comeback to defeat the Nashville Predators and also take a 3-1 series lead (6:45). That makes way for a conversation around the Toronto Maple Leafs, who find themselves trailing the Boston Bruins 3-1 as tempers flared on the bench in Game 4 (16:34). Will this be the end of an era in Toronto? Finally, they touch on the last Canadian team, the Winnipeg Jets, who after winning their series opener against the Colorado Avalanche are in a 3-1 hole (23:32).

In the back half of the show, Jeff and Elliotte key in on the American matchups. First, they highlight the Dallas Stars-Vegas Golden Knights series (35:48). Then, the fellas talk about how the Tampa Bay Lighting staved off elimination against the Florida Panthers (39:50). That makes way for the Rangers-Capitals series that saw New York eliminate Alex Ovechkin's team from the playoffs. Jeff and Elliotte ponder if this will be Ovi's final appearance in the Stanley Cup Playoffs (43:26). They wrap the podcast by diving into the Islanders-Hurricanes series where New York has staved off elimination as well (52:07).
