NHL: Nashville Predators at Toronto Maple Leafs John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

Jeff Veillette, creator of The Faceoff Circle, stopped by to preview the Predators-Maple Leafs game tomorrow, plus we had an in-depth discussion of the Hart trophy.

Inside today’s episode:

  • Does the Hart Trophy only go to playoff teams? And has it always been that way?
  • This year’s Hart race is intriguing for many reasons, the least of which is Nathan Mackinnon and his ability to make the Colorado Avalanche a legitimate team.
  • We talk about this brutal hit on Andreas Johnnson.
  • What can we expect out of the Leafs tomorrow? Auston Matthews is supposed to return to the lineup, which should be fun.
  • An attempt to put to rest any “Frederik Andersen for Vezina” talk that seems to be emerging
  • The final playoff spot in the East: Florida or New Jersey?

And plenty more! Thanks for listening, folks.
