In the span of seven days, since the last PensBurgh Podcast episode, the Pittsburgh Penguins have been involved with quite a few headlines—almost none of which have to do with the game of hockey itself. Sidney Crosby made his long-awaited, triumphant return to the Penguins lineup... only to play one game and be forced out due to a positive COVID-19 test. Head coach Mike Sullivan has also entered the NHL’s Covid protocol. All the while, the Penguins are still playing games and chugging along with their season. This week, Robbie and I recap the last few Penguins games and we also address this surge of Covid cases inside the Penguins’ locker room. How can the team sustain continued success with so much lineup shuffling? We’re also answering your mailbag questions (even if they are a week old)!

    PensBurgh Podcast, Ep. 70: The End of an Era?

    44:00

    They say absence makes the heart grow fonder. The PensBurgh Podcast returns to your podcast libraries this week, and not a moment too soon. This week, Robbie and I are discussing two main talking points: the first being the massive slump the Pittsburgh Penguins have experienced in their last 10 games. Pittsburgh is 2-6-2 in their last 10 (before the latest game against the Montreal Canadiens went final), with the team experiencing a ton of lineup shuffling. As we head towards the holiday season, Robbie and I wonder if this is what the Penguins are this season, and if we should look ahead to the 2022-23 season instead. Additionally, we discuss and break down the potential sale of the Penguins to the Fenway Sports Group. Is this a good thing? A bad thing? How does this impact the final years of the Crosby/Malkin era? And, as always, we’re rounding out the show with the weekly mailbag thanks to the listeners who sent us questions on Twitter.

    PensBurgh Podcast, Ep. 68: Brett Detar of The Juliana Theory

    42:43

    It’s true, it’s damn true: the PensBurgh Podcast guest chair is filled once again. Brett Detar, lead singer of Pittsburgh’s own The Juliana Theory, joins the podcast to discuss a wide array of topics. This week, Brett, Garrett, and Robbie sat down to discuss the Pittsburgh Penguins’ recent games against the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Tampa Bay Lightning. Brett also took the time to answer some of our questions. We touched on things such as his introduction to the Penguins when he was a youngster, growing up and playing hockey with his buddies in his hometown, plus Brett gave his thoughts on the Penguins’ disappointing playoff run of 2020-21. Brett also shared a Mario Lemieux story that many diehard Penguins fans may be familiar with, but he has his own wrinkle to add to this legendary tale. If you’d like to see what Brett or The Juliana Theory are up to these days, you can follow Brett’s personal Twitter account here and follow The Juliana Theory’s Twitter page here.

    PensBurgh Podcast, Ep. 67: Jarry, Jarry Good

    42:02

    Now we’re cooking with gas. After the pomp and ceremony of the first game of the season against the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Pittsburgh Penguins have since played three more contests since last week’s podcast. Time to jump to conclusions! Currently, Pittsburgh sits at a 2-0-2 record, grabbing six out of possible eight points without the services of both Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. Had you told me that before the season started, I’m not sure I would have believed you. But one of the driving forces behind the Penguins’ solid start? Goaltender Tristan Jarry. Jarry owns a 2-0-1 record, a .935 save percentage, and 1.62 goals against average. Robbie and I go on to discuss Jarry’s impressive start and whether or not he can keep this kind of play up when it matters most. The mailbag is loaded with six questions. We’re answering your questions about trades involving injured players, Lange-isms, and much more! Enjoy this week’s episode and, as always, thank you for listening!

    PensBurgh Podcast, Ep. 66: A Good Start

    39:44

    The Pittsburgh Penguins kicked off their 2021-22 campaign with a resounding victory over the defending Stanley Cup champions, the Tampa Bay Lightning. While missing key offensive cogs such as Sidney Crosby, Jake Guentzel, and Evgeni Malkin, Mike Sullivan and his band of flightless birds played a thorough and systematic game to down their opponents. A 6-2 win in game one of 82 is a good start, but it is important to take everything one step at a time. Don’t plan the parade route just yet. On this week’s PensBurgh Podcast, Robbie and I take a look at the Penguins’ season opener, the players who surprised us, and hypothesize if the team can play this style of hockey over a longer period of time, with or without Crosby and Malkin. The listener mailbag sees us answer questions regarding Brian Boyle’s future as a Penguin, ESPN’s first hockey broadcast since 2004, plus much more.

    PensBurgh Podcast, Ep. 65: Who Makes The Cut?

    40:37

    The preseason is almost over. Huzzah. With that said, the Pittsburgh Penguins are inching closer to finalizing their roster ahead of Game #1 the Tampa Bay Lightning on October 12. This week’s PensBurgh Podcast sees Robbie and I recap the last three preseason contests. In addition to the game recaps, we’re both looking at which players have risen and fallen based on their preseason performances. Danton Heinen and Kasperi Kapanen have looked like world-beaters, while players like Nathan Legare, Samuel Poulin, and Brock McGinn haven’t really flashed their best attributes. While no lineups have been finalized as of this podcast, both Robbie and I give our thoughts on some fringe players that may have done enough to earn a permanent roster spot come opening night. The listener mailbag closes out the show with a very interesting trade offer as well as a discussion about LTIR usage and how that could benefit the Penguins during the season. *** Don’t forget to support us by rating and subscribing to the podcast on iTunes, Spotify, and Google Play.

    PensBurgh Podcast, Ep. 64: Pittsburgh Penguins 2021-22 Season Preview

    48:55

    You’ve made it through another off-season without hockey. And while the Pittsburgh Penguins didn’t capture the Stanley Cup in 2021, the optimism of a new season has dragged you back in to watch your favorite flightless birds. While all of us here at PensBurgh are getting ready to give you that good #content you’ve come to expect, the PensBurgh Podcast is back for all you podcast listeners. Whether you’re a first-time listener, strapping in for a new hockey season, or a longtime listener who participates in the weekly mailbag, before this show gets on the road, I would like to give sincere thanks to anyone who has taken the time to download, listen, comment (positively and negatively!) in regards to this production. Fellow PensBurger, Robbie Naugle and I will be with you all season long to give you our thoughts in audio form. *** This week’s show recaps the Penguins’ off-season moves, touches briefly on the prospects that were drafted at the NHL Entry Draft in July, and we give our loose predictions on how we think Pittsburgh’s season will unfold. In addition to all this, the listener mailbag is back to round out the discussion. This week, we’re talking about our favorite binge watches, whether or not this iteration of the Penguins lack speed and skill, and trying to figure out what kind of player Radim Zohorna might be.

    PensBurgh Podcast, Ep. 63: An Early Exit for the Penguins

    53:48

    The Pittsburgh Penguins’ season has come to another abrupt end. Losing to the New York Islanders in six games while largely playing the better hockey over the course of the series is sure to sting for some time. But the team has to move forward. While another season has come and gone with no championship for Evgeni Malkin, Sidney Crosby, and Kris Letang, that doesn't mean it was a complete failure of a campaign, either. As the core gets older by another year, even more questions are going to be asked about the team’s veteran stars. Will Malkin and Letang receive contract extensions or have they played their final games in the black-and-gold colors of Pittsburgh? What will happen with Tristan Jarry after a legendarily bad postseason run? Is Mike Sullivan’s time as head coach up? These are all topics that are sure to be discussed as summer kicks into full gear. And the PensBurgh Podcast is here, for one final time this season, to put a bow on this memorable crusade that was the 2021 Pittsburgh Penguins season. Robbie and I discuss what the Penguins may change before the 2021-22 season, both in terms of player personnel and, perhaps, coaching positions as well. This week’s mailbag is stacked from top to bottom with eleven questions thanks to our loyal Twitter users and listeners. For those who may read this and listen to this podcast, I would like to say thank you to everyone who has taken even a second to download, listen, review, or ask a question for this show. The PensBurgh Podcast has been the project that I am most proud of working on since joining PensBurgh almost five years ago, and the show wouldn't be where it is today if not for the great listeners who enjoy the content Robbie and I put out. I hope I have done my job of both informing and entertaining anyone who listened to the show during this crazy season. The podcast will return later this summer, likely around the time NHL free agency begins. So, for now, thanks for listening, enjoy the podcast, and Let’s Go Pens.

    PensBurgh Podcast, Ep. 62: Reviewing Games 1 & 2 of the Penguins-Islanders series

    39:36

    Through the first two games of this opening round series, the Pittsburgh Penguins find themselves tied at one game apiece with the New York Islanders. Even though both teams have a game to their name, there are still several areas in need of improvement if the Penguins wish to close this series out on their terms. Whether it’s going a combined 0-5 on the power-play, an inability to finish odd-man rushes, or giving up 79 shots on goal through two games, these Penguins are far from perfect. Robbie and I are here to give our thoughts on Games 1 and 2, as well as try to figure out what the team can do to fix some of these issues. In addition to the main topic, this week’s mailbag doesn't hold anything back, either. We’re answering questions about lifelong NHL bans, Tristan Jarry’s performances, former Penguins players, and much more: Don’t forget to support us by rating and subscribing to the podcast on iTunes, Spotify, and Google Play.

    PensBurgh Podcast, Ep. 61: Previewing the Penguins-Islanders First-Round Series

    57:20

    Are you ready? The Pittsburgh Penguins are gearing up for another run at the Stanley Cup. With the regular season finally complete and the playoffs yet to kick off, the PensBurgh Podcast is here to preview this round one series. Will the New York Islanders spoil the Penguins’ hopes, reminiscent of 2019 postseason? Or will these fully healthy flightless birds advance to the second round for the first time since 2018? Here’s the agenda for this week’s special playoff primer: We recap the final regular season games against the Buffalo Sabres The main topic this week: Previewing NYI-PIT. The Penguins went 6-2 against the Islanders in the regular season series. The Penguins also averaged 3.25 goals per game against the Islanders in the regular season series as well. With the Islanders playing, what is best described as a “boring, low-event, 2—1-esque” style of hockey, what can the Penguins do to ensure they come out of this series as the victors? We also pick Round One X Factors, highlighting one player who will make the biggest difference for the Pens in this series. To close out the playoff preview, Robbie and I also give our series winner prediction. And, of course, we can't forget about the mailbag. This week’s mailbag sees Robbie and I look back on the 2021 regular season, wondering what former general manager Jim Rutherford might have done differently, looking ahead to this summer’s expansion draft, and much more: Don’t forget to support us by rating and subscribing to the podcast on iTunes, Spotify, and Google Play.
