Gameday 73: Penguins vs. Flyers

By: G-Off | March 17, 2019 Penguins vs. Flyers PPG Paints Arena – Pittsburgh, PA  7:30PM Eastern – NBCSN | TVAS Following a dismal showing yesterday afternoon, which resulted in a 5-1 loss to the biggest group of shitheads in the West, the Penguins have an immediate chance to lick their wounds and forget that ever happened when they play host to the biggest group of shitheads in the league.
