Sky Kerstein of the 106.7 the Fan in Washington DC joined the “Glenn Younes Show” on Wednesday night to preview the Stanley Cup playoffs and specifically gain insight on the Caps playoff preparations. The Caps versus New York Rangers series was first up “They are playing a more attacking system than lying back under Dale Hunter’ system”. “Bruce Boudreau was all out offense, and Dale Hunter was full defense and very little offense. Now you have Adam Oates who is a hybrid of the two”.
Glenn followed up by asking Sky, what changed for Ovechkin to be scoring like he is now. “Adam Oates likes having a right handed shot on the right side and left handed shot on the left side, Ovi played on the left side and you knew the same move he would make every time. Adam Oates saw this on film and moved him to the right side… This gives Ovi a whole new repertoire of moves”.
Joel Wards health was a topic as well. “He’s been skating very gingerly as of a late; if he does go he will be on the fourth line… I don’t know if he will make that big of an impact on this series”.
Sky finally gave his series prediction with the Caps winning the series in 6 games.
