Ahead this week on AFITC, many thought it was a sure thing that the Stanley Cup would be back in Canada for the first time since 1993 but the Boston Bruins said, “Not so fast.” We’ve got extensive coverage of the Stanley Cup Finals coming up in the Redline Report; what went wrong for the Canucks, are major changes required, where should the blame be focused? AFITC West Coast Correspondent Will Gunton checks in as well with his thoughts on the series and the ugly aftermath that followed on the streets of Vancouver.

We kick off the segment with another Defining Moment in Leafs History, this week featuring an excellent single game performance from Doug Gilmour. Following that, we bring you Leaf Notes with news on Carl Gunnarsson and a big need that Brian Burke needs to fill over the next two weeks. Back Checking touches on the growing speculation of Jaromir Jagr’s return to the NHL and brings some more great Listener Contributions onto the show.

Wrapping the segment, welcome Dallas Stars prospect Alex Guptill back to the program as he gets set to begin his NCAA career with the University of Michigan Wolverines in the fall. Rigamarole wraps the show and pays some well deserved attention to the success of the Boston Bruins. Sit back, enjoy, it’s the Father’s Day edition of AFITC coming at you now!
