Tim Benz, Jonathan Bombulie discuss what to watch for in Penguins-Flyers outdoor game

Workers prepare Lincoln Financial Field on Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2019, for the Stadium Series game between the Penguins and Flyers.

Tribune-Review Penguins beat writer Jonathan Bombulie is in Philadelphia for the Penguins-Flyers Stadium Series game Saturday. He joins me for Friday’s Sided.co podcast.

Is Evgeni Malkin going to have to fight after his recent stick-swinging incident against the Flyers? What’s the backup plan for the weather if it turns bad? We also debate if the Stadium Series games, in general, have jumped the shark.

LISTEN: Tim Benz, Jonathan Bombulie talk Penguins-Flyers outdoor game, disaster vs. Sharks

Speaking of sharks, what happened against San Jose on Thursday night?! It was a special teams disaster, for sure. Then there was the fight in front of the Pens bench that Evander Kane started. Sidney Crosby can’t get swept up in something like that. But he did. We talk about preventing that from happening.

Then we get an update on Jim Rutherford’s plan for the trade deadline.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
