Dustin Penner #25 of the Los Angeles Kings celebrates with teammates Slava Voynov #26, Jeff Carter #77 and Mike Richards #10 after Penner scores the game-winning goal in overtime as the Kings defeat the Phoenix Coyotes 4-3 in Game Five of the Western Conference Final during the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Jobing.com Arena on May 22, 2012 in Phoenix, Arizona.

Randy and Jason Sklar, hosts of comedy and sports podcast "Sklarbro Country," and History Channel's new show, "United Stats of America," join the show to talk about the latest in the sports world.

The L.A. Kings are headed to the Stanley Cup Finals after defeating the Phoenix Coyotes. The Stanley Cup finals are like the World Series in Canada — but now there's a big flap over an alternative audio feed, designed for women, of the TV broadcast.

The Sklar brothers will also share their thoughts on the disappointing L.A. Lakers season, who fell in the second round to the Oklahoma City Thunder after having championship aspirations.

Al Jazeera is expected to launch two new sports channels in the U.S.

And finally, David Beckham, in a new TV commercial for the Samsung GALAXY Note smart phone, kicks soccer balls against a wall of drums, and plays a little Beethoven.

Guests:

Randy and Jason Sklar, twin brothers and hosts of podcast "Sklarbro Country," and History Channel's, "United Stats of America."
