It's the "Misery Loves Company" podcast! Think you are bummed about the Penguins? Imagine how depressed they are in Tampa after the Lightning also got swept in four games of a first-round series. They were the top seed and they tied the NHL wins record. Yet the Bolts lost all four games of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals to Columbus. Pittsburgh product Greg Linnelli covered the Penguins with me at iHeart Radio before moving to Tampa to host "Lightning Power Play Live." So he can speak to both upsets. He joins me from Florida to talk about how both cities are handling bitter disappointment.

And we try to figure out why the team can't score worth a lick against New York goaltender Robin Lehner.
In Thursday's Sided.co podcast, Jonathan Bombulie--the Trib's Penguins beat writer--joins me from Long Island to preview Game 2 of the Penguins-Islanders series. We figure out why Mike Sullivan wants to stick with his failed lineup decisions from Game 1 against the Islanders. We also talk about why Phil Kessel and Evgeni Malkin were so good, why Sidney Crosby's line struggled so much, and why there is so much focus on the "what ifs" from Wednesday night.
