The NBA Hall of Famer also spoke about his upcoming CNN talk show with Gayle King.

Although best known for his storied NBA career and starring on “Inside the NBA” (also on TNT), Barkley is a lifelong hockey fan and complimented the sport before the game started.

“I love your guys’ sport, it’s so awesome,” he said, before poking fun at the NBA’s “load management and ‘superteams’.”

“I love that you only care about winning the Stanley Cup. And that’s what all sports should be.

Barkley predicted the Panthers would even the series at 2-2 after winning Game 3.
