Keefe’s in the Lab, but Chemistry Is Lacking

Real Kyper & Bourne

Mar 20 2023 • 1 hr 44 mins

Nick Kypreos, Justin Bourne and Sam McKee kick off the week by discussing a pair of Leafs wins over the weekend, the team lacking chemistry despite the wins, Matt Murray's statement game against his old squad in Ottawa, Calle Järnkrok's hot stretch and William Nylander's mini-slump. Leafs' radio colour analyst Jim Ralph joins the show (42:59) to discuss teams limping into the playoffs, Sheldon Keefe's lineup tinkering and the Leafs' defencemen he'd like to see on the postseason roster. Then, New York Islanders' winger Matt Martin calls in (1:05:27) ahead of his side's game against the Leafs tomorrow night. He discusses the Islanders' crunch down the stretch, Pierre Engvall's fit with the team, stories from his two years with the Leafs and shares his thoughts on the issue of obligatory fights after big hits. To close, Kyper, Justin and Sam discuss Rasmus Sandin's struggles in Washington, the dampened playoff race as of late and the 'puck-tail' on broadcasts and whether or not its a good thing for hockey.
