The Penguins capped a strange seven days with an encouraging victory over Tampa Bay on Monday, which featured the return of Evgeni Malkin. Matt and Matt try to make sense of the team’s recent erratic play, then they look at the otherworldly production of Chris Kunitz and recent trade rumors. What reinforcements would most enhance the Pens’ prospects for a deep playoff run? What players might be dangled as potential trade pieces?

Of course, Pirates spring training continues on Florida’s Gulf Coast, as Clint Hurdle’s team digs into the exhibition season. What are the chances Jose Tabata reestablishes himself as a prominent part of the the Bucs? Will Gaby Sanchez’ strong start to Grapefruit League action translate into additional playing time at first base? Is there any reason to worry about shaky starting pitching in the first few spring games?

Finally, Matt and Matt quickly analyze the Steelers’ signing of defensive back William Gay before delivering their final thoughts. This week, they look at the year-old You Can Play Project and the real-life emotion that resulted from Pitt basketball’s senior night festivities.
