    The Stanley Cup Final is here! Let's find out if Carl is emotionally prepared for it. After making quick work of the Edmonton Oilers, the Colorado Avalanche had to wait to find out their opponent.  The Tampa Bay Lightning bounced back after two loses to eliminate the New York Rangers, after a late goal seemed to break their confidence. Was their any way that New York could over come the Tampa forecheck? Nick provides Carl with the help that he needs heading into a stressful Stanley Cup Final. How does one properly prepare for this? We also look at the goalie matchup of Darcy Kuemper vs Andrei Vasilevsky, the annoying schedule and whether Conference Final trophies should be touched. The Buffalo Sabres are retiring Ryan Miller's number. But is he eventually destined for the Hall of Fame? All this and more on episode 384 of the 4th Line Hockey Podcast!

    The NHL Conference Finals are well underway! With the New York Rangers moving past the Carolina Hurricanes, they're primed for a goalie matchup against the Tampa Bay Lightning. But is Andrei Vasilevsky vs. Igor Shesterkin living up to the billing? The Colorado Avalanche and Edmonton Oilers have had a slew of controversial plays, including Evander Kane's hit on Nazem Kadri and Cale Makar's offside call. Were the right calls made? Darcy Kuemper had to leave, replaced by Pavel Francouz. Will he be good enough? Martin St. Louis stays as the coach of the Montreal Canadiens, while Bruce Cassidy is fired by the Boston Bruins. Why did Boston feel the need to make the move? Patrice Bergeron was the winner of the Selke trophy, which begs the question: When should we re-name awards after a player?

    We are back and ready to look back at everything that happened during the holiday break! The NHL has a real problem with how they're handling COVID. And that is that they have cancelled almost every game in the second half of December. Their solution: Skip the Olympics. And that leads us to have positive things to say about Brad Marchand. 2022 is starting off weird! Not only has the NHL had to cancel games, but the games that are happening aren't exactly the same quality that we're used to. What can be expected for the rest of 2022?  Even the World Junior hockey championship was cancelled! But don't worry, we have a solution to fix all of it! But, there was good news over the break, as a fan in Seattle showed us all how we should interact with teams when at the game. With it being that time of the year, we look around the NHL and see what some New Years Resolutions should be for various teams and even us as fans.  Lastly, we pick the Pavel Bure Must Watch Games of the Week and restart a new type of Hi Sticking.

Paul Maurice surprisingly resigned his role as the coach of the Winnipeg Jets. Why would he leave a good thing? Or is it not a good thing? We answer some mailbag questions finding out what position we would play in the NHL and why Daniel Alfredsson isn't in the Hall of Fame.
