Breakfast with Benz: Hyped up yet? Here’s what you need to get ready for Penguins-Flyers
It’s the day we’ve been waiting for since Olli Maatta and Justin Schultz stopped pounding beers on the parade route.
Game 1 of the Stanley Cup playoffs is tonight at PPG Paints Arena. It’s Pittsburgh against Philadelphia. Read all about it in “What to Watch.”
We give you a full look at the rest of the NHL postseason calendar there, too. Also, get a preview of tonight’s Pirates game in Chicago against the Cubs and a do-or-die NBA showdown.
I get expert analysis from Mark Recchi and Bob Errey and give all my opinions on Penguins-Flyers in the daily podcast .
In my daily column, I tell you why I think Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin should already be deemed the best duo in Pittsburgh sports history , regardless of whether they win a third straight Stanley Cup.
Speaking of hockey, in “First Call” we discuss the phony, cute underdog sentiment surrounding the Flyers. Jerome Bettis gives his thoughts on Le’veon Bell. And Aaron Judge hits a home run at Fenway Park that almost landed on Gronk’s party bus.
