The Pittsburgh Penguins have delivered a bit of a mixed bag over the last seven days. A shootout loss to the Philadelphia Flyers, a regulation loss to the Buffalo Sabres and an almost legendary collapse at the hands of the New Jersey Devils shows that these Penguins are not perfect.
It’s not all doom and gloom for the Pens, however. The team still sits in a playoff-worthy third place in the East Division with nine games to go before the playoffs begin. On the injury front, Kasperi Kapanen returned to the ice last night following a foot injury that has kept him out of action since March 24. And Evgeni Malkin is inching closer to a return as well.
This week’s episode highlights goaltender Tristan Jarry, and whether or not the 25-year-old’s recent play warrants any kind of skepticism as the team’s number one netminder with this squad looking to make another long run through the postseason.
The mailbag segment sees Robbie and I delve into the world of professional sports chants, reminiscing about other collapses throughout franchise history, talking about the expansion draft, and wondering what next year’s Penguins team might look like:
