It's our weekly Penguins podcast with Penguins Radio Network host Brian Metzer. We discuss the team's 6-3 win over Colorado Tuesday night. It was a wild affair similar to their recent game in Denver, which the Penguins lost 6-3.

In that game, the Penguins were down 3-0. Sidney Crosby scored a natural hat trick to tie the game. Then they lost 6-3.

In this game, the Penguins jumped out to a 3-0 lead. The Avalanche tied it 3-3. Then Patric Hornqvist scored a hat trick to win it 6-3.

Metzer and I go over all the twists and turns from "Horny's hatty," rebounding from a blown lead, Marcus Pettersson's debut and Casey DeSmith's postgame hair.
