Real Kyper & Bourne

Mar 24 2023 • 1 hr 44 mins

Justin Bourne and Brent Gunning open with last night's Leafs' win against the Florida Panthers, Auston Matthews looking like himself, finally getting a look at the 5-on-3 powerplay, Erik Gustafsson running the powerplay and Morgan Rielly being a healthy scratch. They are joined by JD Bunkis, who discusses the Leafs' goaltending situation, which goalie would be better suited for playoff-intensity hockey, Sheldon Keefe's odd lineup experiments, the wait for Matthew Knies and who will be the 13th man on offence (41:04). Then, Bally Sports' Hurricanes analyst Tripp Tracy joins the show (1:06:40) to discuss the team ahead of their game against the Leafs tomorrow. He shares his thoughts on the state of the 'Canes after Andrei Svechnikov's injury, the team's defensive acumen, their demanding schedule down the stretch and if they can remain contenders within a loaded Eastern Conference. The guys close by answering some listener questions.
