With the Western Conference race tightening up and the Phoenix Coyotes tied for the lead in points, we can assume that many folks probably think hell has frozen over.
Tonight on POTG Radio we will discuss that possibility and many more as we focus on the wild, wild Western Conference. We will have guests that are bitter rivals from the Coyotes and Kings.
First up, we will have Travis Hair of Five For Howling who covers the the Phoenix Coyotes and has joined us many times in the past. Previously, most of the talk has been about ownership and business related stuff, but this time hockey will be front and center.
We will also have Matt Reitz of View From My Seats who follows the the LA Kings. Matt's site is one of the best hockey sites on the internetand he has recently added a few new writers to his stable. We will touch on that and also get in to where the Kings will finish up once it all shakes out.
It should be an interesting show. Please join us Live at 7 p.m. Central or on podcast.
