For Episode 3.14 of AFITC, we return to the studio after a week on location at the Shamrock & Thistle. After it looked like the end was near for both Paul Maurice and John Ferguson Jr. less than two weeks ago, the Maple Leafs rolled off four consecutive wins to ease the tension in Leaf land. We will look back at games against the Thrashers, Penguins, Predators, Rangers and Bruins and spin you through the Revolving Door with updates on Leaf injuries.
More Leaf news regarding Mats Sundin, Staffan Kronwall and Jiri Tlusty follow the game reports as well as an anointment of Maple Leaf player of the week will. Quick Hits conclude the Redline Report with news on Scott Niedermayer, Alex Auld, Sam Gagne and Mark Recchi. In On The Bubble, we feature listener email, a Troubling Fact of the Week and the return of Michael Landsberg, the host of OTR on TSN, on AFITC.
And in Rigmarole, we look at the continuing struggles of the Maple Leafs power play. Four wins in a row is a nice change of pace for Maple Leaf fans. Hey did I mention the Sens lost seven straight?
Big thanks to Michael Landsberg for joining us on this week’s edition of the program! As always, it is a treat to get him on the show!
