Brady and Patrick are back to take you through what was a banner weekend for Patrick. First, we get into the first three games of the first round series between the Bruins and the Maple Leafs. Patrick was at a fantastic Game Two, but what went wrong in Games One and Three? How do the Bruins solve their issues?

Next, we take you through the Celtics Game One W over the Pacers and look ahead to the rest of the series. We then discuss the Red Sox major struggles we were in attendance on Thursday, April 11 and on Patriot’s Day. Patrick has some strong words for their decision regarding Blake Swihart. We then talk about the Patriots’ addition of TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins and the possibility of Demaryius Thomas and/or TJ Yeldon in New England.

Also, we give our thoughts on the conclusions of both the Final and Frozen Four. We then get into national news around the NHL, including the Tampa Bay Lightning being the softest team of all-time. Lastly, we close the show talking about Patrick’s man Tiger Woods winning the Masters and completing his comeback.

0:00 How worried are we about the Bruins? Game Two versus Games One and Three. What would we change about the lineup?

15:22 The Celtics took Game One after a mediocre start. Our outlook on the series. We’re kind of bored by them right now. Why are we less excited about the Celtics?

20:10 What on earth is going on with the Red Sox? Patrick is NOT happy with the Red Sox’ mishandling of Blake Swihart.

35:52 The Patriots made a move! They’ve brought in Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Demaryius Thomas. What about TJ Yeldon? Bye-bye Chris Hogan.

42:00 Patrick has some more thoughts on the Swihart situation.

43:28 Our thoughts on Virginia winning the National Championship in basketball and Minnesota-Duluth on winning the Natty in hockey. Cale Makar is GOOD.

48:41 The Tampa Bay Lightning may be the SOFTEST team of all-time.

53:00 Tiger Woods is your 2019 Masters Champion. Patrick’s take.
