It has been a while but now it is time to bring back "This Day In Playoff History" for Monday, April 23rd. This being a special day we decided to package several moments into one for the first day of the week. These always have a playoff theme from now until the middle of June so do not expect anything less. Again, we wanted to thank our friends that do a little sports betting, so go check them out. Here is the video first and then those moments as promised.
