With the NHL regular season winding down, Rick and Craig put on their prognosticator hats in this week’s episode of Post to Post. Starting with the six game suspension to Duncan Keith and rolling right through to the NHL’s most overrated player, the duo hit on all the hot topics surrounding the league as the playoffs loom. They also welcome to the show veteran broadcaster Abe Hefter from Montreal, as he dishes the dirt on what has become of the Habs in this forgettable season for them.
As always, the show is recorded “live” in front of a studio audience consisting of two dogs and two cats that aren’t really into hockey. Follow Rick and Craig on Twitter at @rickgethin and @icer12. You can follow Abe Hefter on Twitter here: @hefteronthehabs
