With two more games completed in the Eastern Conference Finals, the New Jersey Devils podcast Talking Red returns to discuss what's going on with our favorite hockey team. In this episode, David Sarch; former ILWT writer, Puck the Media manager, and general hockey media mastermind Steve Lepore; and myself discuss Game 3 and Game 4 against our hated rivals, the New York Rangers. We talk about how Game 3 was without resorting to the word "frustrating" several times, and the good feeling that came out of Game 4. We also chatted about the TV ratings for this series and the postseason overall, the media coverage of both teams, Peter DeBoer, the current playoff MVP on the Devils, the current best beard on the Devils, and Kevin Smith. There's something for everyone in this one.
Big thanks to Steve for coming on before his big announcement tomorrow morning. Thanks again to David for having me on to talk about the Devils some more.

Here's David's description of this bonus mid-week show:
On this week's episode, David is joined by John from In Lou We Trust and Steve Lepore of Puck The Media. They break down the highs and lows of Games 3 and 4. After that, David and John discuss how the Devils and the NHL did with their TV ratings, the media's perception of the team, and a certain coach that doesn't love interviews. After that, they answer some listener questions and share stories of Hardware Stores, Sweden, and Kevin Smith.
Thanks for listening.
