Pittsburgh sports talk with the Trib columnist

Morning Java: Who’s your key to Game 4?

By Dejan Kovacevic | Trib Total Media

OTTAWA — Morning, Lunatics …

>> The Wednesday column compares the Penguins to a molecule and other such weirdness, but it also has some pretty candid talk from mega-intense Kris Letang.

Welcome your feedback, as always, but I’d also like to ask: Which player is your key to Game 4?

And to extrapolate a bit, let’s go a bit past Tomas Vokoun here. That’s obvious.

>> Here’s our full team coverage from practice yesterday, by Rob Rossi and Josh Yohe.

One of those pieces is about the imminent return of Jussi Jokinen, interviewed right here …

>> If you missed my follow-up interviews off the Tuesday column about Jarome Iginla and Dan Bylsma’s usage of Iginla, the videos of my questions yesterday afternoon are right here.

>> My TribLIVE Radio show podcast yesterday included discussion of the power play, of the Pirates’ challenge in reining in A.J. Burnett and of the Steelers’ challenging in weighing LaMarr Woodley.

>> Travis Snider’s grand slam and Jason Grilli’s 35-pitch save carry the Pirates past the Cubs. Rob Biertempfel reports from PNC Park.

>> Farewell to Max Starks, total class act and a big — literally — part of the Steelers’ success the past decade. He’s bolting for the Bolts.

>> Mike Tomlin’s message to the Steelers on first day of OTAs: Shut up. Alan Robinson reports.
