Penguins Radio Network host Brian Metzer joins me for our weekly hockey podcast.

The Penguins played a stinker in their first home game back from a week off. New Jersey beat them 6-3. We talk about Evgeni Malkin’s struggles, the team’s inability to beat bad teams and another short-handed goal allowed.

Plus, why is Mike Sullivan’s team so bad against last-place clubs? The coach was also asked about the team’s 0-for-5 power play effort and its lackluster emotional investment.

Oh, by the way, the best team in hockey is coming here Wednesday. The Atlantic Division-leading Tampa Bay Lightning visit.

Most importantly though, we review the new Rival Sons album and look at the Sonic Temple lineup.
