Last Word on Hockey is pleased to present our new hockey podcast, The 4th Line Podcast. Coming from Calgary, AB and Nanaimo, BC, Carl and Joel provide their own unique and fun view of hockey. Every week the guys share their thoughts on the news of the week, have a variety of guests from the world of hockey and spend some time in segments like Joel’s Counselling Couch, The Rant Shack, and The Hot Seat.

The guys are back as they record with the Toronto Maple Leafs and Washington Capitals game freshly ended. Talk talk through the news of the week and the happenings in the NHL playoffs.

– The Toronto Maple Leafs are down to the Washington Capitals, but does this mean they’re done? What should the penalty for Nazem Kadri been for his hit on Alex Ovechkin?

– With the Pittsburgh Penguins making quick work of the Columbus Blue Jackets, are they bettered suited for a 2nd round matchup against a potentially playoff tested Capitals team? Should Marc-Andre Fleury or Matt Murray start in net in round 2?

– With the Chicago Blackhawks being swept by the Nashville Predators, is it time for the Hawks to panic?
