Forty nine years up, forty nine years down. The Chicago Blackhawks finally ended the longest Stanley Cup drought in the NHL defeating the Philadelphia Flyers in six games earlier this week. We’ll take you through the Cup Finals and touch on just how successful a series it was not only for the Blackhawks, but the NHL as a whole in the Redline Report. Before that though, we kick start the show as always with Leaf Notes with some news on Nik Kulemin. Quick Hits this week features news on new coaches in Columbus and Tampa Bay and a retirement in San Jose.
To wrap the Redline Report, we welcome long time friend of the podcast Andy Frost back to the show to share his thoughts on the top stories going on right now in the world of the Toronto Maple Leafs. On The Bubble brings Listener Contributions from Twitter and Email along with our final interview in our series of prospect appearances as Steven Beyers, the one hundred and ninety ninth ranked skater among North American skaters for the 2010 NHL Entry Draft joins us on the show.
And finally, rigamarole concludes the show with a look at the positively stupid comments of Adam Burish in a post game interview soon after winning the Stanley Cup.
Special thanks to Andy Frost and Steven Beyers for joining us this week on the program. Don’t miss “Quick Hits” with Andy Frost on next week’s show!
