The Pittsburgh Penguins are playing some frustrating hockey as their first-round series against the New York Islanders sit tied at two games apiece and that’s the topic du jour of the latest episode of Three Rivers, One Show.
Regular hosts Matt Shetler and Matt Gajtka look into if the Penguins are in real trouble as this has turned into a three-game series.
They dive into Marc-Andre Fleury’s playoff struggles dating back to the 2009 campaign and answer the question of if Fleury will be heard from the rest of the season or if Tomas Vokoun will have to carry the Pens the rest of the way.
The duo then breaks down what the Penguins need to do to advance and what mistakes they need to eliminate to do so. What if the Penguins lose this series? The Matts discuss whether or not the Penguins could see some major changes heading into next season.
However, it’s not all hockey talk as the Pittsburgh Pirates are on the table. Has James McDonald pitched his way out of the Bucs’ future plans? Also don’t look now but Andrew McCutchen is heating up.
Finally the Matts close their show with their final thoughts. Hear how the Penguins are similar to the Miami Heat and what Sidney Crosby and LeBron James have in common.
