The Stanley Cup Semifinals and offseason news around the League dominated the conversation on this week's episode of the "NHL @TheRink" podcast.
In addition, co-hosts Dan Rosen and Shawn P. Roarke were joined by former NHL forward Scott Gomez, who talked about his new collaboration on a social series with the NHL called "Scotty Goes presented by New Amsterdam Vodka."
Regarding the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Rosen and Roarke broke down how the Tampa Bay Lightning responded after losing Game 1 to the New York Islanders, evening the best-of-7 series with a much better performance in a 4-2 win in Game 2 on Tuesday.
They also talked about why the Vegas Golden Knights are just too much for the Montreal Canadiens to handle in the other series.
In offseason news, Rosen and Roarke touched on the New York Rangers' (Gerard Gallant) and Columbus Blue Jackets' (Brad Larsen) new coaches, the Boston Bruins' goaltending situation, and what the future holds for Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Dougie Hamilton.
Gomez came on the podcast to offer details about his new show, a five-episode series that features the two-time Stanley Cup champion with the New Jersey Devils spending a day with former teammates, chatting about memories on the ice and what they have been doing since retiring.
The first episode, which features Hall of Fame goalie Martin Brodeur, airs Thursday on various NHL social channels.
Gomez also told Rosen and Roarke other stories from his playing days, such as how former WWE wrestler Goldberg got into the Devils locker room after they won the Stanley Cup in Dallas in 2000 and started posing with former defenseman Scott Stevens.
