Felger & Mazz: May 20, 2013
Felger and Massarotti kicked off the week talking some Boston Bruins and their 5-2 Game 2 win over the New York Rangers yesterday. With the win, the B’s take a 2-0 series lead. Five different Bruins scored goals yesterday. What can we take away from yesterday’s Game 2 win? Are the Bruins in the head of Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist? Wade Redden and Dennis Seidenberg are both ready to return from injuries. When they return, which defense men will have to sit? Does they that way John Tortorella does things get the best out of his players? Finally, the guys replay Friday’s Squeaky Mazz and Mad Mike from The Final Word.
In Hour 2, Felger and Mazz changed gears for a bit to talk some Boston Red Sox. The sox have won the last five games, including a weekend sweep of the Minnesota Twins. Will this sweep get the Sox back on track? In New England Patriots news, Peter King is reporting that Tom Brady’s confidence throwing the football is at an all-time high. Why isn’t King asking the questions people want answers to? Is Brady just telling us what we want to hear? Marc Bertrand is given the stage to present his own Hot Sports Take. Last week, Danny Ainge said that Doc Rivers will return to coach the Boston Celtics next season. That’s not enough for Bertrand. He wants to hear Doc Rivers, himself, say that he is returning next season. Is Doc really planning on returning to Boston? Back to the Rangers-Bruins series, are the B’s in Luncqvist’s head?
During Hour 3 of Felger and Massarotti, the guys discuss the postseason play of Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask. What has Rask done to outplay Lundqvist this series? Felger and Mazz also talked about the emergence of defenseman Torey Krug. Can a comparison between Rangers head coach John Tortorella and New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan be made? Felger reads the email of the day which was about the play of Tyler Seguin and Jaromir Jagr. Should Seguin replace Jagr on his current line? The guys also discussed Game 3 between the Ottawa Senators and Pittsburgh Penguins. The Senators won in overtime yesterday. The Pens still lead the series 2-1. Can any of the teams remaining in the East compete with the Penguins?
In the fourth and final hour, Felger and Mazz continued to talk B’s. What more do Bruins fans need to see to validate the work of Claude Julien and Peter Chiarelli? Also, the guys continued to take calls on the topics that were covered today. Finally, it’s The Final Word with Marc Bertrand.
