Tim Benz, Mark Madden discuss Penguins, start of Pirates season, Tom Izzo ‘controversy’
There is a lot to get into for “Madden Monday” this week with Mark Madden of 105.9 the X.
We start with the Penguins and the impact of recently acquired forward Denis Sav … uh, I mean … Jared McCann.
How about that spin-o-rama goal he scored Saturday night in Dallas?

Also, in terms of the Penguins, Mark and I try to figure how to handle the defense pairings once Olli Maatta returns. And we attempt to surf through the best possible playoff pairings for the club.
Mark had a heated Twitter exchange with former Steelers receiver Emmanuel Sanders this week. So I thought he’d be the perfect person to ask about Sanders being the latest guy to go after Kevin Colbert and the Steelers organization.
Speaking of fabricated online dust-ups, we each have some strong opinions on the Tom Izzo “controversy” about whether he yelled at a player too much Thursday afternoon.

Also, a Pirates season preview and the art of interviewing a mime on the radio.
