Podcast: Mike Cole

Henrik Lundqvist and Zdeno Chara

The Rangers are off to a rough start. After winning what should have been their most difficult challenge so far this season on opening night in St. Louis, they have lost three straight games and have allowed 17 goals in the losses. In Boston, things haven’t been going much better for the Bruins either as the heavy favorites in the Eastern Conference have a hard time scoring goals and ended a three-game losing streak on Wednesday night after having never lost three straight during the 2013-14 season.

Mike Cole of NESN.com joined me to talk about the state of hockey in New York and Boston, the difference between the two cities when it comes to sports and the realization of how hard it is to win a championship once you lose.
