Tim Benz, Brian Metzer discuss how Penguins can get around injury issues
Times aren’t good for the Pittsburgh Steelers right now. We all know that.
But it’s a struggle for the Penguins, too. They have to find a way around injuries to Evgeni Malkin, Nick Bjugstad and Bryan Rust.
And they are only two games into their 82-game season.
Game 3 is Tuesday night against the Winnipeg Jets. Brian Metzer will be on 105.9 the X as part of the Penguins Radio Network broadcast. He’ll join me weekly for hockey talk segments on the “Breakfast With Benz” podcast.
This is our first podcast of the year. It’s a little longer than normal since we spend a lot of time reviewing the much-anticipated Tool release, “Fear Inoculum.”
But, at 16 minutes, the podcast really isn’t that much longer than most of the songs on the album.
Eventually — I promise — we do get to hockey as we figure out what the Pens will do at forward with those three skaters on the shelf. We also try to diagnose a plan for the power play. And we debate the importance of a fast start for the club in the first month.
