MayorsManor Live Radio – Western Conf Final preview with Hrudey and Bernstein

Kelly Hrudey makes another trip onto the MayorsManor radio show today. In the past, he’s talked about not wanting to cry during his speech at Staples Center, his kids, the honest words Dean Lombardi gave him near the end of his career, his favorite memories of LA and much more. So, you just never know what nuggets he’ll share when he’s on. However, we’re going to center the conversation around the 2013 Western Conference Final between the Kings and Blackhawks. In addition to breaking it all down for us, he also has some pointed words about Drew Doughty that you won’t want to miss.

If that’s not enough, one of our most popular guests, Dennis Bernstein of The Fourth Period magazine, drops by to give his insight and opinions on not only the LA-Chicago series, but he’ll preview what to look for when the Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins hook it up in the Eastern Conference Final. Which players will make a difference? Who has been virtually absent this post-season? Which goalies should give their teams confidence? Bernstein will get into all that and much more – as always.

So, sit back and enjoy some hockey talk…
