Edmonton Oilers’ Connor McDavid and Pittsburgh Penguins’ Sidney Crosby skate together in a game from 2016.

Tonight at PPG Paints Arena, it’s the Pittsburgh Penguins versus the Edmonton Oilers. Faceoff is at 8 p.m.

It’s Sidney Crosby vs. Connor McDavid.

Sportsnet.ca columnist Mark Spector joins me on the Sided.co podcast to talk about the matchup.

• Why has Edmonton struggled so much this year?

• Where is McDavid in year four of his career compared to Crosby?

• Can Leon Draisaitl become the Evgeni Malkin to McDavid’s Crosby?

• Does McDavid have the personality to own the “face of the league” title Crosby has carried?

• Mark gives his thoughts on the Penguins and their standing in the East as well.

All that and more hockey here:
