The Stanley Cup Playoffs are underway and so is our coverage on AFITC. Coming up this week, we get you up to date on some Leaf Notes regarding Jonas Gustavsson, Dion Phaneuf and the status of impending free agents to kick start the Redline Report. Later, we address the progress of the eight first round match ups and look at a few of the bigger stories from the early part of the playoffs including Andy Sutton`s controversial hit on Jordan Leopold.
Quick Hits wrap the Redline Report with news on firings in Atlanta and Tampa Bay, the end of an era in the Dallas Stars’ net and some rather strong feelings from Edmonton Oilers’ Head Coach Pat Quinn. On The Bubble brings Listener Contributions from Twitter and Email, the Junior Hockey Report that wraps our coverage of the Buckland Cup Championship and an appearance from the Gong Banger in a head scratching edition of the Troubling Fact of the Week.
Remarkable parity through the early part of the first round of the playoffs. We’ll tell you just how close it has been in the segment that we call rigamarole. Stick around. All that and more coming your way when Episode 5.31 of AFITC begins now!
