Podcast: How many points will Penguins get in 4 games this week?

Tim Benz
Penguins center Sidney Crosby (87) defends against Capitals right wing T.J. Oshie (77) in the first period Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2018, in Washington.

Brian Metzer of the Penguins radio network joins me for our weekly Sided.co hockey podcast.

We talk about Matt Murray’s steady play. Was he the star of the weekend? And can he hold up against the Capitals on Tuesday night?

We get into the emergence of the Florida guys, particularly Nick Bjugstad, of late.

Also, the solid performance of the new defensemen is a major story. We can’t go far talking about the Penguins improved efforts of late without a stick tap toward Erik Gudbranson and Zach Trotman.

LISTEN: How many points will Penguins get over next 4 games?

Also, Metz predicts how many points the Penguins will gather over the next four games before we speak again. The Penguins host Washington on Tuesday. Then they visit Buffalo on Thursday, followed by back-to-back home games against the Blues and Flyers on Saturday and Sunday.

Oh, and we give you the much anticipated U.S. dates for the Tool tour as well .

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
