On this episode, Garrett and Jim discuss:

  • The 4-month stoppage, Phase 3 training camps have started up, the Phase 4 “in the bubble” exhibition game vs. the Flyers on July 28, as well as Game 1 of qualification round versus the Canadiens on Saturday, August 1
  • Various training camp happenings such as the Sidney Crosby injury/absence, Patric Hornqvist and the eight other players who were held out for a week after secondary Covid-19 exposure
  • We also look at players who have stood out so far, with the likes of Conor Sheary, Malkin, Jake Guentzel, Evan Rodrigues, and Sam Lafferty getting gold stars, while on the other side of the coin, we examine some of the bad things, like what to make of Matt Murray’s current form
  • And we close out the show with another great mailbag thanks to our followers on Twitter
  • A programming note for next week’s podcast schedule: we will be dropping two episodes of the Pensburgh Podcast next week. One episode will be earlier in the week and will be shorter in nature, focusing on the Penguins-Flyers exhibition with a member of Broad Street Hockey. And the other episode will likely be in its traditional form with a contributor from Eyes On The Prize as we examine the play-in series
