At long last, the Stanley Cup Final is underway and of course we are all over it here on Episode 3.38 of AFITC. Will Detroit’s experience be too much for the Penguins to handle? Will Pittsburgh be able to learn the ropes in the Finals quick enough to get back on track? We answer all those questions and more coming up in the Redline Report. Before that though, we start the show with news on John Pohl and the Toronto Marlies playoff run in the Leaf Notes portion of the show.
Quick Hits concludes the Redline Report with news on Jeremy Roenick, Alain Vigneault, Tony Granato, the coaching and GM situation in Dallas and this year’s deadline for Scott Niedermayer and Teemu Selanne. On The Bubble brings you more listener email, a Troubling Fact of the Week, and at the end of the segment, we welcome this week’s guest to the program.
Joining us this week is St. Michael’s Buzzers defenseman #6 Brandon Burlon. Brandon is ranked 41st among North American skaters for the upcoming NHL Entry Draft and we will talk to him about what got him to this position, what he expects heading toward the draft and look ahead to next year when he will skate with the University of Michigan Wolverines. And finally, rigamarole tells you which team the Pittsburgh Penguins resembled in game one of the Stanley Cup Finals.
Thanks go out to Brandon Burlon for joining us on AFITC this past week! We wish him all the best as he goes into the NHL Entry Draft at the end of June.
