Last Word on Sports is proud to present their hockey podcast, On the Power Play with Ben and Dave. Join Ben Kerr and Dave Gove each week as they take a look around the Hockey World focusing on the big issues of the NHL and elsewhere.
The NHL is back, and Dave and Ben are here to take you through all the big stories of the week from around the league.
They go through Auston Matthews‘ incredible four goal debut. How did the Toronto Maple Leafs phenom put up these numbers and is it a sign of things to come? What else struck them from the Leafs opening night loss to the Ottawa Senators?
The boys also look at the injuries to Sidney Crosby and Jack Eichel. Crosby’s concussion has to be worrying especially with his history. The boys look at what it means for the Pitttsburgh Penguins and the NHL.
Wayne Gretzky is back with the Edmonton Oilers. What is the Great One’s new role, and what does it mean? How much power will he have in Edmonton?
The boys also go through new contracts for Rasmus Ristolainen, John Gaudreau, and Nikita Kucherov. What teams did well in getting their RFAs inked to reasonable deals, and who overpaid?
Lastly the boys go around the league predicting the conference and Cup champions, as well as a surprise (good and bad) team, and the winners of all the major awards.
All this and more, as we go On the Power Play.
