On a day with two Game 7s in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals, New York Islanders defenseman Steve Staios drops by Thursday afternoon to discuss the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Staios, who has played in 1,001 regular-season games, as well as a Game 7 in the 2006 Stanley Cup Final, knows a bit about the pressure the first round's four remaining teams will face Thursday night. After a season of facing off against these teams, he also knows about their personnel and tendencies. So stop by and get an insider's scoop on the drama that will unfold Thursday night.
I kept refreshing the page on the NHL website after the second round and I was shocked he lasted that long. I'm sure the Coyotes were pretty happy to get him. He's such a good player and he plays big in big games.
