Here is the starting six in the line-up this week:
GUEST #1:  We had Executive Director of the Boston Bruins Foundation Bob Sweeney on only two weeks ago at what was a fun show at Brutopia Brew Pub in Montreal but in light of what happened at the Boston Marathon and with Bob being directly affected by the bombings, he will join us to discuss his experience last Monday. The Boston Bruins Foundation had plenty of runners running in their support, one of them an Army Ranger and good friend of both Bob and Murph, Lucas Carr. Lucas will also be joining us in this segment and we’ll talk about how he and so many rushed to help those in need on Monday and how the city has united as one. We’ll look back not only at that tragic day in Boston but what was a proud moment for the city as they showed their solidarity at the Bruins-Sabres game Wednesday.

GUEST #2: We talked Capitals with Chris Stevenson of QMI Agency last week but since they haven’t cooled down since then, we’ll discuss them again with Washington Times Capitals beat reporter Stephen Whyno. Could the Capitals go on another playoff run and make it even further this season? We’ll find out.

GUEST #3Grant Sonier of ESPN The Magazine joins us again as we’ll get the latest from the OHL playoffs. We’ll also discuss what it’s like for players such as Swedish prospects Carl Soderberg of the Bruins and Philip Forsberg of the Nashville Predators to make the jump to the NHL just as the playoffs are set to begin.

GUEST #4Mark Spector of Sportsnet.ca will open the second hour with us as we discuss the Oilers changing things at the top with the firing of Steve Tambellini and hiring Craig McTavish as GM and rehiring Scott Howson as vice president of Hockey Operations last Monday. Are the Oilers just continuing to recycle? We’ll get ‘Spec’s’ take on the Oilers and the Western Conference playoff race.

GUEST #5: CSNNE.com Bruins reporter, host of  ‘I’m Just Sayin’ on AM 1510 NBC Sports Radio Boston and Boston native Danny Picard will join Murph to discuss his experience with the tragic events of last Monday and also the Bruins as they head into the playoffs.

GUEST #6: We’ll close the show out with Billy Jaffe of NHL Network, MSG, and NESN. Billy and Murph will talk about the Rangers and whether they can ever find their stride and make the playoff run so many predicted they would. They will also discuss the Islanders and whether they can be a Cinderella team in the playoffs.
