Episode 2.32 marks the beginning of our playoff coverage on AFITC. Without the Maple Leafs to centre the show around, this week’s program takes on a bit of a change in format compared with our regular season shows. Nevertheless we begin the Redline Report with news from the aftermath of the Maple Leafs’ season. We relate comments from the mouth of Mats Sundin concerning his future with the team, discuss Carlo Colaiacovo’s most recent injury and let you know which Leafs will be participating in the upcoming World Hockey Championships beginning at the end of April in Moscow, Russia. We also update you on the progress of the eight quarter-final matchups and share some Quick Hits to conclude the Redline Report.
In On The Bubble, we read some more exceptional email received this past week through our email firstname.lastname@example.org and through our Facebook group, A Foot In The Crease Fans. This week’s Troubling Fact of the Week is inspired by the bizarre decision by the NHL to give NBC first right of refusal for scheduling instead of the CBC.
Rigamarole looks at the potential interest in expanding the playoffs to include extra teams at the end of the regular season.
