To steal a phrase from Ilya Bryzgalov….I have great news, and even better news. The great news is that I was not on the podcast today. The better news is that gives it a chance to be good.

theScore’s own Jake Thompson jumped in to take my place for the day, and did a great job. Pizzo talked with him about…

* The Penguins win streak

* What team would suffer most if they lost their starting goalie

* The grossness that is the Southeast Division

* Jackie Redmond joined the guys for her Monday segment

* Power rankings

* Shootout moves (Giroux’s vs. Kane’s)

* And much more
