Golden Knights goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury makes a save on the Penguins’ Juuso Riikola in the third period Saturday, Oct. 19, 2019 at PPG Paints Arena.

No Madden Monday this week, as Mark Madden is off for a few days. So consider this a “Metzer Monday.”

Brian Metzer of the Penguins Radio Network joins me for his weekly hockey chat a day earlier than normal. And why not? It was a busy weekend of Pittsburgh Penguins hockey at PPG Paints Arena.

The Penguins managed to hold off the Dallas Stars 4-2 on Friday but were shutout 3-0 by the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday.

It seems like that Marc-Andre Fleury fella may have a few good years of hockey left.

Tristan Jarry appears to have made some strides this season as Matt Murray’s backup. We talk about his efforts.

Also, the Pens continue to impress without lots of injured firepower up-front. Brian offers up some reasons how they are doing it.

Then we get into something rare for the Penguins these days — a road trip.

They’ve played seven-of-nine games at home this season. But now they hit the road for games against the Florida Panthers, Tampa Bay Lightning and a rematch in Dallas against the Stars.

We preview the whole trip in this podcast.

Also, we discuss the metal music expertise of Erik Gudbranson.

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.
