Barry Melrose checked in with an update on the NHL Playoffs. Prior to the postseason, Melrose chose the Los Angeles Kings as his “dark horse” to compete for the Stanley Cup, and at this point it seems to have been a wise choice. Melrose also discussed the inconsistent minutes for Alex Ovechkin and how it’s been benefiting the Washington Capitals. Barry further forecasted big changes for the San Jose Sharks after they once again followed up an outstanding regular season with a disappointing showing in the playoffs.
