Episode 5.35

Featuring Jesse Beamish

Did that really happen? One of the most unpredictable playoff rounds in recent memory wrapped up with some very surprising results. We’ll take you through the end of the second round and tee up the Conference Finals in the Redline Report. Before that though, the Maple Leafs added some stability to their front office for the next two seasons. We’ll explain how in Leaf Notes. Quick Hits wraps the Redline Report with news on Team Canada at the World Hockey Championships, Patrice Cormier, Kari Lehtonen and the Coyotes future in Phoenix.

In On The Bubble, we turn to some great Listener Contributions from the Twitter, Email and the Insiders Group. The Gong Banger stops by later in the segment to ring in another Troubling Fact of the Week before giving way to this week’s guest: St. Michael’s Buzzers Assistant Captain Jesse Beamish, the 159th ranked player among North American skaters by NHL Central Scouting heading into the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

And finally, rigamarole looks at two astonishing results from the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Where would the Habs be if they didn’t have PK Subban for Hal Gill and Andre Markov and the Flyers if Michael couldn’t take over Leighton game 5?

Big thanks to Jesse Beamish for joining us this week on the program. All the best at the 2010 NHL Entry Draft Jesse!
