After an official recount determined that we had lost count of the total number of shows, today we bring you bring Episode 2.30, actually our 76th show all time. So for those of you who had planned special 75th Edition of AFITC listening parties with popcorn, cake, chips, pretzels and brews, we are afraid you will have to go back and re-listen to last week’s show. Terribly sorry if this has ruined your week!
The play of the Maple Leafs this past week though should serve as pleasant news in the wake of this unfortunate discovery. Five out of a possible six points this past week in games against the Carolina Hurricanes, Atlanta Thrashers and Pittsburgh Penguins leaves the Maple Leafs in control of their own destiny as their drive toward the 2007 playoffs continues. To begin the Redline Report, as always we recap said games and provide an update on the statuses of Michael Peca and Karel Pilar in the Revolving Door. What To Be-Leaf explains the necessary course of action this week for the Maple Leafs to secure a playoff spot and discusses why Mats Sundin’s goalless drought is concerning but not detrimental. To conclude the Redline Report, we tell you the award Carlo Colaiacovo was nominated for; discuss the injury situation of Rick Dipietro and finish with some quick hits regarding Jack Johnson of the LA Kings and Martin Biron of Philadelphia Flyers.
