June 3rd, 2014 · Comments

A matchup of epic proportions, we preview the exciting NHL Stanley Cup Final between the New York Rangers and the LA Kings.   Parcells Falling Out, Ron in NJ, Robert in VA, Mike in North NJ, and possibly others could join us to break down the two teams' exciting playoff path to the championship round, plus we'll look at the best matchups of the Cup Final, what's at stake for each team, and whether the series could be in for another 7 game thriller!   Could Hagelin, McDonagh, Kreider, and Moore be the heroes or will Kopitar, Doughty, Carter, and Brown be the victors?   Can Jonathan Quick rebound from his shaky performance in the Conference Final to match the excellence of Henrik Lundqvist's Eastern Conference Playoff work?  Lots of fun from the NHL in store for this week's show PLUS, a look at the NBA Finals rematch between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs.  The Spurs get home court advantage this time around, but will Tony Parker be healthy enough to make the Spurs a winner?  What will LeBron James do with lesser bench help and a battle weary roster?   Can coaches Erik Spoelstra or Greg Popovich make the right moves?  THEN, Kevin on the Cape joins Dave for "Random Questions" in Hour 2.  This week - more excitable banter!  Also, a look at MLB so far - will the Dodgers have a run in them, how far will the A's go, do the Astros make it above .500, and are the Yankees in line to make a playoff run?   This and much more from sports on an action packed episode.
