Spring is fully in the air and hockey is delivering its own version of madness. Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo go bracket to bracket dissecting the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Is the current NHL postseason divisional format asinine or entertaining? Are the normal elite teams weaker this year? Will it finally be time for Alexander Ovechkin and the Capitals to embark on a deep run? Can the Rangers and Ducks turn great regular seasons into a championship? How much pressure is on Carey Price and Montreal? The Blackhawks experienced talent, the Canada impact, the Penguins and Red Wings uncommon struggling star power ways, the curse of the Blues. All these questions and topics will be bantered about.
In addition to a Stanley Cup Playoff preview, the Major League Baseball season is almost two weeks old. Which teams have played above themselves so far?

We're back, and we've got an entire hour devoted to talking about the Burnley match. N'Zogbia sure was a weird left back choice, right? And how about that time when... uh... actually I don't even really remember the Burnley match. And we're barely touching on it this week.
Well because the is FA Cup final week. We're here to take a look at everything surrounding Saturday's trip to Wembley. What do Villa have to do to beat Arsenal? Can we finally score a goal on the Gunners this year? Will we be able to liit their damage to fewer than the four goals they've averaged against us.
To help us figure this all out, we've got Travis King from The Short Fuse to give us a bit of an Arsenal perspective. Don't worry, we checked. He's a decent human being.
Why in the world is anyone talking about anything other than, you know, sports actually being played right now? Shoutout to all talking about a third-string quarterback.
On The Exchange, Jason will be joined by frequent guest and fellow colleague at The Sports Fan Journal, Dillon Friday to talk about the ongoing first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
There are plenty of questions to ask as sixteen teams slowly whittle down to eight. Can the Pittsburgh Penguins restore some of their luster against the favorites to win the East in the New York Rangers? Will the Islanders continue the party to close out Nassau Coliseum? What can we make of the most interesting series going between St. Louis and Minnesota? Further, what can we take from the commanding series leads by Montreal and Anaheim, the latter with three brilliant comeback wins against the Winnipeg Jets?

Calgary Flames coach Bob Hartley hopes they have a little bit of surprise left.Trailing the Anaheim Ducks 3-1 in the best-of-7 Western Conference Second Round, Hartley is resolute heading into Game 5 at Honda Center on Sunday (10 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN, TVA Sports)."There's a full belief and my message is, 'Shock the hockey world,'" Hartley said. "That's what we're trying to do every day and it's nothing new to us. It's just rewind and press play. Playoffs, anything can happen, and especially in our situation. We want to keep going. This has been a great season for us. I know how resilient our players have been. It's not that we're down 1-3 or that we didn't win in Anaheim.
"We need to win one game. Let's win one game, let's bring it back to the 'C of Red,' and after this, let's see what happens. We need to win [Sunday] night, plain and simple."
NEWARK, N.J. -- When Joshua Harris was announced as co-owner and chairman of the New Jersey Devils in August 2013, he was adamant about being in it to win it.After not qualifying for the Stanley Cup Playoffs the past three seasons, New Jersey has reached the postseason once in the past five and has finished no higher than fourth in its division.Harris, a self-proclaimed impatient individual driven to succeed in whatever he does, is confident that the recent addition of Ray Shero as general manager
It's once again time for some NHL hockey talk on City of Champions Radio, as host Matt Gajtka welcomes sports radio veteran Dan Kingerski to dig into the Stanley Cup playoffs and the Pittsburgh Penguins. Dan is a current host on Pittsburgh's 93.7 The Fan, and he is the self-professed "hockey guy" at the all-sports-talk station. Matt picks Dan's brain on the four teams remaining and the current course of both conference final series. They also try to diagnose the Pens' rough end to the season and formulate ways to get the franchise back on track. Is it as simple as staying healthy? Or is there a deeper issue with the way the roster has been constructed?
