Let’s Talk: Now discussing Game 4 of Jets-Golden Knights

Let's talk

We’ve been running ‘Let’s Talk Cup’ every morning to offer readers a guide to that day’s NHL action

Introducing a new daily feature!

We’ve been running ‘Let’s Talk Cup’ every morning to offer readers a guide to that day’s NHL action beyond the Penguins, as well as a forum to discuss that in comments. And after a bit of a slow start, it eventually took off to the extent that we thought about making it something more.

So, what we’ll do is put together a schedule on all the major sports we cover, with some basic accompanying info. That’s how it’ll start. And from there, as the day goes along, we’ll add headlines and links to other news around the sports world, albeit from a Pittsburgh perspective.

The onus is on you here! Keep it lively! Contribute your own links to stuff you find around the web!
