This week on the OTCBPodcast- we felt it was a good idea to chat with the four offensive coordinators after the openings games of the Conference Finals. 61 goals were scored in the two games and it was a bad night to be a goalie. Rusty Kruger has been on both sides of the Rock-Bandits rivalry and now as the OC in Toronto, he's tasked with trying to outgun one of the best units in league history. John Tavares on the other-hand, has always been on the Buffalo side of things and now with a one game lead in the series, he'll try and focus his troops in hopes of avoiding a game 3. Jason Bishop is in his first year behind an NLL bench and without Ryan Lee, it would have been understandable if the Mammoth had an off night- that definitely wasn't the case. Finally, Josh Sanderson from the Seals knows that if his club can play a full 60 minutes, they should be just fine- but if they don't come ready to play Saturday, their season could be over real quick. Plus a real spicy BoxBet Parlay that you may want to hop on and we ask a very important question about Vegas. All that and more on this week's OTCB.
