With the playoffs set to start tonight, I had a chance to talk to Matt Anthony about all things Spruce Kings this season. This is Matt's first year in Prince George and his first real introduction to the Spruce Kings. It was a great season to come on board and provide the play-by-play broadcast of all the home games. Watching the game at that level and preparing for those games in the Castle gave Matt an opportunity to learn things about the team and to see things evolve from the beginning of the season to the start of the playoffs.
In this interview Matt and I talk about many aspects of the season and even share our predictions for the first round playoff series between the Merritt Centennials and the Prince George Spruce Kings. I started by asking Matt to talk about two underdog teams at the beginning of the year that are now set to do battle in a best-of-seven series.download audio file
