The Black and Gold Blitz returned tonight with our regular hosts, Christopher Carter and Jeff Hartman as we talk about Pittsburgh sports and the Pittsburgh Penguins being one win away from the Stanley Cup! You can listen to the show in the player above, on our BlogTalkRadio page or on iTunes by searching 'The Standard is the Standard'.
Now for the rundown of the show:
The Pittsburgh Penguins scored a huge win in San Jose last night in game four of this year's Stanley Cup Final and saw the heroics of Evgeni Malkin return for a goal and an assist as well as more outstanding play from goaltender Matt Murray. We talk about who needs to step up their game for the potential game five win and the importance of Pittsburgh winning a championship during a game played in the City of Champions.
The Pittsburgh Pirates have hit a rut and are now ten games back in the NL Central with a 30-26 record. We talk about Pirates concerns and Neil Walker's return to Pittsburgh as the Pirates play the New York Mets this week, but also the much awaited debut of Jameson Taillon Wednesday night.
Jeff and Chris debate over the value of Jarvis Jones going into 2016 and whether this will be his year to live up to the hype of being a mid-first-round draft pick. We also talk about the Steelers' evolving defense and the latest news for Pittsburgh's top team.
