With the end of the NHL regular season here, it is time to preview the first round!

But first, with the season ending, it’s also the time for coaches to go. Phil Housley, Bob Boughner and Willie Desjardins are no longer with the Sabres, Panthers and Kings respectively. Joel Quenneville will be joining Florida. What else does the future hold for these teams?

With 8 matchups set to kick off this week, each one is examined as Carl tries to give Nick a stat and see if he buys or sells it. There are some easier matchups to pick (Tampa over Columbus, Nashville over Dallas). But how do the rest of the series line up?

For the last time of the regular reason, a Hi Sticking winner is crowned!

All this and more on episode 226 of the 4th Line Hockey Podcast!
