I knew that the St. Louis Blues would handle the Anaheim Ducks at Scottrade Center in a best of 7 series, but I did not know how. The Blues posted the best record in the NHL this season (and the best since the league changed its playoff format) and were the favorites to win the Cup.
After a week-long break, the madness resumes! The Habs have finally lost all the momentum they built up in OT and have stuttered to a 0-2 series deficit. The Isles have been doing their best to keep up with their rivals but are still at a disadvantage, as they don’t have the speedy forwards that Montreal has. If the series doesn’t end here, the Habs have every chance to end it in game 6.
Each week we bring you a recap and review of the latest episode of Quest for the Stanley Cup, the NHL playoff series that airs exclusively on ESPN+ in the United States.
This week, we dive into episode 4: Keep your distance.

While Ryan Pulock plays at a low level, Brendan Gallagher plays at a high level.
Once again, Quest does its best work not with today’s action, but with the nostalgic charm of teams from the past. Nassau Coliseum was the hero of this season’s playoff drama, with the New York Islanders winning Game 7 in the latter days of the old hockey barn. So it was nice to spend some time with Islanders Hall of Fame member Dennis Potvin, who talked about the dynasty years and what it was like to win in Nassau, which these teams often did. Did the Islanders really skate under We Are the Champions? Because it’s the best choice.
Dear Guest Star
Anders Lee played his last game of the season on March 11. after which he had to undergo surgery to repair his anterior cruciate ligament. But he was there for the team in the postseason and gave a memorable locker room speech for Game 4: We gotta beat the Islanders. Big, ugly targets and a gang v…. Let’s remind them who we are, he said before hitting the wall on his way out. The equipment here is really great.
Best coffee break

We love all types of life stories in these shows. The search leads us to a coffee shop where many Lightning players stop before games — in Tampa costumes! — to get something to eat along the way. The fact that the barista has long been a Lightning fan is fascinating.

You can never predict the unexpected, and that’s what happened when Canadiens coach Dominique Ducharme gave a positive COVID-19. Good work from Quest, who went into the Montreal room and recorded his video conference with the players.
The episode is about game 4 between the Lightning and the Islanders, and it’s exciting to watch. Reminder: The Islanders led 3-0 before Tampa Bay responded with two quick goals in the third period. Lightning coach John Cooper joked on the bench that he wanted to see a goal on TV every timeout, and they came too soon.
But that attempt failed when Islanders defender Ryan Pulock stopped defender Ryan McDonagh from getting close to goal. Internal access to the festivities on the ice and in the locker room only adds to this instant classic moment.

What do you say? Hey, excuse me? HEY, YOU, WITH THE FLAMINGO OUTFIT! GO! — intercepted at T-Mobile Arena, we assume.
Brendan Gallagher. While it’s not really a surprise that Montreal fans have embraced the player with Gallagher’s particular quirk, we liked the attention the Canadiens striker received in this episode. This is particularly amusing: Gallagher takes a tour of the city from the roof of the Bell Centre.
While it was great to talk to Gallagher, we still don’t know enough about this Cinderella team. The city? Yes. The players? Not really.
Remaining problems after displaying
- Why does Gallagher think the top of the Bell Centre is one of the best views in Montreal, when it’s clearly surrounded by huge skyscrapers that (A) block his view and (B) have a better view?
- Does Corey Perry’s sunny relationship with the judges remind you of the relationship between inmates and jailers in prison?
- Does Robin Lehner really prepare for competitions by surfing Twitter?
- How long will Anders Lee coach the team after his retirement?
