Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin posted two points as the team won the Battle of Pennsylvania against Philadelphia on Monday 4-1. Less than a minute into the game, Malkin helped Rickard Rakell to open the scoring on the power play, and he wrapped up the scoring himself with 4:25 gone in the third period. It marks Malkin's fourth multi-point outing in 10 games. The Russian star now boasts 35 points (15 goals, 20 assists) in 39 games for the season. He's in danger of recording only his third campaign with a scoring average of below 1.00, but Malkin still has time to work on his numbers, and he's upped his productivity over the past three weeks.
Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin didn't participate in Wednesday's practice due to an illness. The Penguins are preparing to face New Jersey on Thursday, and Malkin would miss his first action of the season if he doesn't feel well enough to play. Malkin has turned back the time this season with a 17-point effort across 14 outings. He boasts eight goals and nine assists for the campaign. Lark Eller could get a larger role if Malkin is unavailable on Thursday, while Jeff Carter (lower body) also appears ready for duty after getting through a full practice on Wednesday.
Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin crushed it against Washington on Friday, playing a part in all of the team's goals in a 4-0 victory. The veteran star opened the scoring early in the second period and handed out three assists, including two on the power play. These are Malkin's first points of the campaign after Chicago nullified him on opening night despite firing off six shots on goal. Malkin added four more efforts on target Friday. His new-look line with Reilly Smith and Rickard Rakell had a rough start to the season, but Friday's game should be a good confidence booster for the trio.
Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin had three assists as the team produced a hugely impressive comeback victory on Tuesday against Columbus. The Penguins fell into a 4-0 hole but managed to win from a four-goal deficit for the ninth time in franchise history. Malkin collected two of his assists on Jason Zucker's goals and wrapped things up with a power-play helper when Sidney Crosby made it 5-4 in overtime. The Russian star had recorded only one point across his previous three games, so he will have been very pleased with how things went Tuesday night. In 63 games across the season, Malkin has contributed 23 goals and 43 assists.
