On this week’s Sports Hub Hockey Show, Ryan Johnston, Judd Sirott and Bob Beers look back at the Bruins win over Tampa Bay on Thursday and the playoff intensity in that game. The guys also size up potential playoff opponents and discuss the Bruins frustration with the Department of Player Safety’s rulings (or lack thereof). NBC Sports Boston’s Joe Haggerty joins the show to talk about players coming back from injuries, the continued success in a busy month of March, Zdeno Chara’s contract extension and more.
In the second hour, Ryan, Judd and Bob get more in depth into some of the league’s disciplinary decisions and on-ice officiating. They also discuss the job Don Sweeney has done building this team and Tuukka Rask’s playoff preparations. NESN’s Billy Jaffe stops by to talk about potential playoff competition, the Western Conference playoff race, and gives his thoughts on Player Safety.
