The Black and Gold Blitz BTSC podcast returned for its second installment Monday night with hosts Christopher Carter and Jeff Hartman from BTSC ready to talk all things Pittsburgh sports.
This week we prepare for the showdown at CONSOL Energy Center between the Penguins and the Capitals for a major game 6 after the Alexander Ovechkin led the Capitals to a necessary game five victory to send the series to 3-2 in favor of the Penguins. Matt Murray is confirmed to be the goalie in net for the upcoming game, we talk about whether he'll rebound or if we'll see Fleury take over as goalie soon. Meanwhile, Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin have talked about wanting to do more, but head coach Mike Sullivan wants to keep the team centered on the strategy that has got them to this point. We talk all that and more tonight.
The Pittsburgh Pirates rebounded after being swept by the Chicago Cubs with a 2-1 series win over the St. Louis Cardinals and enjoyed the return of infielder Jung-Ho Kang who smashed two home runs in his 2016 debut. We talk about his importance in the lineup, why Gregory Polanco is batting in the three spot, and what to look for this week in Pirates baseball.
The Pittsburgh Steelers hosted their rookie minicamp this past weekend and we got to see the numbers of the new additions to the team as well as the first commentary on the 2016 draft picks after some "football in shorts," as head coach Mike Tomlin calls it. We talk that and more Steelers news and views for the show.
