Wow. WOW! Plekanec with 17 seconds to go! Alex Radulov with the OT winner! Shea Weber was a beast! What more can be said about this one? Well Zach Vanasse has a lot to say about it on this epsiode! We’re going to MSG even.
It’s the first ever playoff episode of The Recency Bias! The Bell Centre was rocking, the fans were ready, but your Montreal Canadiens came up short in Game 1 of the first round as Tanner Glass scored in the 1st and the Rangers played an excellent road game the rest of the way to take a 1-0 series lead.
This episode is mainly focused on recapping the meh regular season that was, and hating on Toronto, Boston, Ottawa, the NHL, the IOC, and billionaires. We’re light on bits in this one because we’re simplifying our podcasting game for the playoffs! P.S. The sound issues get resolved at the 13-minute mark!
There was very little to play for in this one, and it showed. Zach takes his time on the mini-podcast this morning to discuss other things you can do with your time before the playoffs start, as well as reasons to hate the New York Rangers.
Arturri Lehkonen had himself a big night in South Beach, scoring a pair as your Montreal Canadiens clinched top spot in the Atlantic Division as they crossed the 100-point barrier. Ian steps in for Zach to cover this one!
Your Montreal Canadiens outplayed the Tampa Bay Lightning on a night the Bolts really needed two points to stay alive in their hunt for the final wildcard playoff spot. Radulov played the OT hero and his line-mate Danault contributed the Habs’ other goal of the night in the Saturday night win in the Sunshine State.
Brendan Gallagher broke out on Thursday night, which is just the kind of thing you want to hear this time of year. Tim Raines was in the house to drop the ceremonial face-off and then Gallagher, Plekanec, and Byron went to work, effectively ending the Panthers season before the half-way point of the first period. Then things got a little feisty.
