VIDEO: P.E.I. sports talk with Fred (Fiddler) MacDonald - Thursday, May 10, 2018



Freddy is all fired up this week about the Montreal Canadiens' recent announcements on how the team plans to improve fan experience. After that, talk turns to another controversey — the Boston Bruins' Brad Marchand and the "licking incident." 

Things settle down a bit as Fred and Jason get into the NHL playoffs as the conference finals begin to take shapre. The Winnipeg Jets and the Nahsville Predators play Game 7 tonight to see who will go on to face the Vegas Golden Knights, coached by P.E.I. native Gerard (Turk) Gallant. 

Talk then turns to basketball, and the Toronto Raptors' performance in particular. There is a bright spot for the Island NBA fans, however, as Scott Morrison and the Boston Celtics have moved on to the East finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
