Discussing the state of the Penguins-Capitals rivalry, PED fatigue & Super Bowl blackout

The Sports Omnivore podcast returns after a week off, as host Matt Gajtka digs into various topics that caught his attention recently.

With the Capitals coming to Pittsburgh on Thursday, it brings to mind how the rivalry has lost some of its energy in recent years. Matt asks if the NHL is worse off with the formerly high-flying Capitals in a state of flux. Can the Pens help carry the torch of entertaining hockey forward?

Also on today’s show, the ongoing PED news cycle is alternately interesting and boring, but can it ever take away a fan’s enjoyment of sports? Finally, Matt talks about the memorable Super Bowl blackout and how a little uncertainty can be healthy.
