Last Word on Sports is proud to present their hockey podcast, On the Power Play with Ben and Dave. Join Ben Kerr and Dave Gove each week as they take a look around the Hockey World focusing on the big issues of the NHL and elsewhere.

The boys are back and looking at the news from around the NHL.

OTPP: Stanley Cup Playoffs Preview, Coaches and GMs Fired

Its the most wonderful time of the year.  The Stanley Cup Playoffs are set to begin with eight series getting under way on Thursday Night. Dave and Ben break down the key storylines and match-ups of each one of those series, lay out who has the advantage, and how the underdogs could pull an upset. Finally they give their predictions on each and every series. Is this the Capitals year or do the rookie-laden Leafs have a surprise for Washington? Can the defensively minded Predators do enough to containg and upset the Blackhawks? What will happen between the Habs and Rangers as Carey Price and Henrik Lundqvist go head-to-head? How will the Penguins fare without their top defenceman Kris Letang?

After going through all of that, the boys shift their focus to non playoff teams.  Who replaces Lindy Ruff with the Dallas Stars? What exactly is going on in Florida, as Tom Rowe is out and Dale Tallon is back in? Where do the Canucks go after firing Willie Desjardins? Is it Travis Green‘s time to be a head coach? The Kings have fired Darryl Sutter and Dean Lombardi, how do Rob Blake and Luc Robitaille get them out of cap jail?

All that and more in this edition of On the Power Play.
