On the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs podcast with Marko:
#1 The Vegas Golden Knights Chandler Stephenson scored at 1:12 in the overtime stanza on Sunday against the Dallas Stars in a 3-2 win. The Knights picked up their second win for a 2-0 series lead over Dallas.
#2 Stephenson said it was his first overtime goal in post season and said that being the game winner was something special.
#3 Marko, talk about the advantage of having home ice at the T Mobile Center for the Knights and quickly jumping to a two game lead going back to Dallas.
#4 Taking a look at game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Florida Panthers and the Carolina Hurricanes. The Panthers were neither intimidated or feeling under pressure opening up their series in Carolina in taking the first two games.
#5 Both wins for the Hurricanes were one goal wins and on the road now they open the next two games, games three and four on Sunrise Florida ice can the Panthers wrap this series up or can the Hurricanes turn things around and take one or maybe two games or is that a stretch and would you assume based on what’s in front of you the next two games it’s gonna take a miracle for the Hurricanes to get back into this?
