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.
Enjoy this week’s episode and, as always, thank you for listening!
