I’m curious to know if any of our readers still have a playoff bracket better than 4/8??

Your incredibly knowledgeable podcasts hosts Kyle Bhawan and I went a combined 3/16 after the shocking series results in Round One.

Kudos to Kyle though, since the only series he got right was the Colorado Avalanche over the Calgary Flames. Beggsy is proud of the ballsy call there.

In our latest episode, we break down the chaos by listing the top six headlines to come from Round One Action. You can catch this starting right after the four minute mark.

6. Leafs choke again...

5. Vegas gets robbed

4. Mr. Game 7 comes in clutch, once again

3. Isles continue to shock the hockey world

2. Central Division dethroning

1. Number One sees combine for one win

Speaking of shock and chaos, one of the most surprising teams all season long has been the New York Islanders.

His insight on life as an Islanders fan might hit home for some Canucks fans...

(Interview starts at 39:15)

We then end the show with four head-scratching series to break down. Kyle and I choose four different teams as we fail to agree on a single outcome. (1:02:40)

Bit of a long one with a ton of playoff hockey to break down, but thanks as always for listening. Hope you didn’t bet money based on our predictions...
