West Coast Bias on NHL Radio with Brad Schlossman

Guest Brad Schlossman joined us for the March 23, 2014 edition of West Coast Bias on NHL Network Radio to discuss the just announced brackets for the 16-team NCAA hockey playoffs.

In addition, Jonathan Davis and I reviewed all the action from around the NHL and debated which teams are peaking at the right time, as the playoffs are just around the corner. Among the teams we spent time discussing included the LA Kings, Anaheim Ducks, San Jose Sharks, Phoenix Coyotes, Dallas Stars, Minnesota Wild, Colorado Avalanche, St. Louis Blues, Philadelphia Flyers, Toronto Maple Leafs, Boston Bruins, Pittsburgh Penguins… and, of course, the Vancouver Canucks.

With Schlossman, we talked about Matt Greene, Derek Forbort, Michael Mersch, the University of North Dakota, University of Wisconsin, St. Cloud State, Boston College… plus, which teams are likely to win their regionals next weekend and advance to the 2014 Frozen Four.
