Daren is joined by Patrick Sharp at the start of the episode to preview the playoffs. He talks about the tactics Joel Quenneville has implemented with the Florida Panthers, the intrigue that surrounds Zdeno Chara squaring off against the Bruins, the unpredictable nature of this year’s playoffs, the pressure the Toronto Maple Leafs face, the responsibility he feels and process he uses when voting for NHL awards, and he tells us the team that he thinks is an absolute lock to get to the semifinals. Renee Paquette joins (40:00) to share some quirky stories about being a Canadian living in Vegas and tries to explain why she had to transform from a Maple Leafs fan to a Golden Knights fan once she moved to Vegas. She talks about her interest in hosting TNT’s NHL coverage and tells Daren who her ideal running mates would be on the panel. Who’s her Charles Barkley? She discusses what she misses most about working in TV and how she went from hosting at the WWE to now having her own podcast and writing a cookbook (Messy in the Kitchen). She shares some stories about her husband, professional wrestler Jon Moxley, including some details with a run-in they and their dogs had with a few coyotes. How did Moxley scare them off?
