Dan and Shawn are joined by former NHLer and current ESPN analyst Dominic Moore (20:11). Moore breaks down the divisional races and discusses who he likes in the Western Conference, the issues plaguing the Pittsburgh Penguins and the likelihood of the Boston Bruins being upset in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. He thinks the Florida Panthers are going to find their footing and sneak into the playoffs and also says the Buffalo Sabres might need a few veterans on the team next year to guide the franchise's top young players. The guys start the episode talking about Alex Ovechkin's 13th season of scoring 40 goals, Jared Bednar earning a contract extension with the Colorado Avalanche, and the chances of the Penguins missing the Playoffs. They finish the episode debating potential teams that can play the role of "Cinderella" this season and asking whether Matthew Tkachuk deserves to be in the Hart Trophy conversation.
