Ahead on Episode 5.7, the Maple Leafs concluded their five game road trip with a busy week including four games. Was there improvement? We’ll discuss as we take you through the four contests to kick start the Redline Report. Also, news on some minor roster adjustments and a thoroughly noteworthy individual performance earns a mention. An injury update follows in the Revolving Door as Phil Kessel closes in on a return date to the Leaf line up.
Quick Hits wraps the segment with a look at the vulnerable position the Detroit Red Wings are in and a salute to the fiftieth anniversary of the goalie mask. In On The Bubble, we feature listener contributions from twitter and email, stop in at the Junior Hockey Report and wrap the segment with the return of the Gong Banger after a week’s hiatus in the Troubling Fact of the Week.
Finally, rigamarole looks at why despite just the one win on the five game road trip, there is plenty to be pleased with for both the team and fans alike. The Maple Leafs look like they’ve at least started to turn the corner. Let’s hope they don’t skid off the road when they get back on home ice. Episode 5.7 of AFITC starts now.
