Ahead this week on AFITC, three rounds down, one to go. The Stanley Cup Finals are set between the Vancouver Canucks and the Boston Bruins and we’re all over it in the Redline Report. We’ll take you through the path the Canucks and Bruins took to get there, which team holds the edge and what has to happen for both teams to have success.
Wrapping the segment, we check in with Will Gunton, our newly minted West Coast correspondent, to plug us in with the mood in Vancouver as the Canucks continue their march to the Cup.
Kicking off the Redline Report is another Defining Moment In Leafs History, this week featuring the Leafs comeback from a 3-0 series deficit in 1942. Later, Leafs Notes touches on a report that Ron Wilson won’t get a contract extension…just yet. Later in Back Checking, we turned to the listeners for some great contributions from Twitter and Email.
To wrap, we welcome top prospect Lucas Lessio of the Oshawa Generals to the program as he heads towards the NHL Entry Draft coming up in June. And finally, rigamarole concludes the show with a look at why the Stanley Cup Finals in recent times have been very good for the NHL. All that and more coming up right here on Episode 6.36 of AFITC.
