As the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs get underway, Eddie Olczyk will be taking a break from the rink to be a part of NBC's Kentucky Derby coverage for the first time in his career.

And on Friday, Olczyk joined the Kap and Haugh Show to preview what's to come on Saturday and discussed the kind of competition we'll see in the race.

"It's setting up to be one of the better derbies we've had in a long time," he said. "When you talk to the heart of the people in this sport, this is as deep of a derby as we've had. If you've got an opinion on a horse that's 20/1, go for it. I think it is that deep."
