It’s all Coaches this week, as we stager towards the inevitable in the Stanley Cup Finals.

The Rink Episode 34

If the Playoffs aren’t going the way Tom and I want, do we still have to watch them? The answer is yes, but we can still complain about them.  And news comes in fast and furious (finally) about the Coyotes situation.  Tom and I have all the updates as the dogs see there day in court.

The Rink Episode 33

One series of round 2 wraps up while Tom and I record the podcast. the Capitals force game 7, and there is still a lot more to talk about.  The Bruins take the beating while winning. there is other talk about movement, and we get in a lightning round, at least, as much of one as Tom and I do.
