The Stanley Cup playoffs have moved on to the second round and so have the Pittsburgh Penguins, and the Gospel of Hockey is back to discuss all happenings in the best postseason in sports.
Co-hosts Matt Gajtka and Larry Snyder welcome credentialed NHL writer Joe Depto to the program to help put it all in perspective, from the details of the Penguins’ matchup with Ottawa to the success of Tomas Vokoun and Pascal Dupuis. How does this series differ from the first-round battle with the Islanders? How has Dan Bylsma performed in the playoffs so far, from scratches to line changes and the goalie situation? Which players need to do more for the Penguins to move on to the conference final?
After the Stanley Cup talk, Matt and Larry update you on the AHL Penguins’ playoff run and Team USA’s progress at the IIHF World Championship, which revolves around a Pittsburgh-area product in goal.
