Penguins' streak, trade deadline, NHL realignment on the Gospel of Hockey docket

The Pittsburgh Penguins have risen to the top of the Eastern Conference with a 10-game winning streak, which means they are the primary topic of discussion on the latest Gospel of Hockey. Co-hosts Matt Gajtka and Larry Snyder welcome back sportswriter Jon Rudder to help analyze the Pens’ remarkable surge from all angles.

What’s been the most impressive part of their perfect March? Are there any glaring weaknesses that could be addressed by the upcoming trade deadline? Who has been the Penguins’ MVP during their current surge?

Matt and Larry also ask Jon about other NHL news, including the newly-approved realignment plan for next fall. Who are the winners and losers, and where do the Penguins fall in that spectrum? Jon then takes on the Gospel of Hockey quiz, featuring puck-related Sports Illustrated cover stories.

Later, the guys present their weekly Local Hockey Report, headlined by playoff success for both Mercyhurst programs and an anxious week for the Robert Morris men.
