The playoffs are here, and we cover them on this week's edition of Broad Street Hockey Radio.

To kick off the show, Geoff, Ben and I were joined by Steve Lepore. He writes the wonderful hockey media blog Puck The Media, which covers all things surrounding the coverage of the sport. Lepore is also a Devil(s fan), and he writes over at SBN's Devils' blog, In Lou We Trust.

We talked to Steve about why the Flyers-Devils quarterfinal series is being ignored by national television, much to the dismay of displaced Philadelphians. We also talked about the Devils team, of course. Why should we be worried about the Devils? Does the regular season matter?

After he signed off, the BSH trio talked about the series a little more in-depth. Will the excitement of this past weekend carry over and translate into playoff success? How will Jeff Carter help the Flyers? Can our defense shut down Zach Parise and Ilya Kovalchuk? ... Boosh?

Get the show after the jump. The hour-ish-long program is a perfect lead in to get you pumped for Flyers playoff hockey tonight.

Get on the show!

We'd also like to remind you of our new feature where you can leave a rant and get on the program. Have a crazy uncle who hates Sidney Crosby and everything to do with fluoridated water? Have him call in and leave a rant! Or, if you're just pissed off after a terrible call on the ice and you need somewhere to vent, call in and leave a rant. The line is open all week long and you can connect easily using the embedded button below.

Enter your number and your phone will ring. Pick up, and it prompts you to leave a voicemail. It's the easiest way to get yourself on next week's show.
