Is there anything better than a fresh episode of the Real Life podcast to help you close out your week? Of course not. This Thursday, the squad discussed last night’s franchise ender
Kicking off the Thursday episode of Real Life, the guys got started with a recap of the first round and how much fun it was to watch the Oilers work through those five games and knock the Kings out again. From the way Game 1 featured a Zach Hyman hat trick to last night’s power play dominance, the L.A. Kings didn’t have many answers for the offensive side of the Oilers’ game.
Sticking with what went well in the first round, the fact that the Oilers were deadly on the special teams on the PP and PK was a major storyline in this win. The Oilers were basically a coin flip on the man advantage while also staying perfect on the PK, and that difference in execution was a massive difference-maker in winning the series.
Lastly, the guys wrapped up the Tuesday episode of Real Life with a conversation about whether we’d rather face the Vancouver Canucks or the Nashville Predators in Round 2. Given that there are pros and cons to both teams, it was interesting to hear the boys given their preference on who they’d rather face. They also looked at tonight’s elimination game in Toronto and wondered whether the Leafs will be able to extend the series to Game 7 or if they’ll need to start booking tee times.
