  • Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Grabs four points in win

    Malkin recorded two goals and two assists in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Canucks.

    Malkin got Pittsburgh on the board with a power-play goal midway through the first period. He'd add an assist on Jason Zucker's goal later in the frame before adding another goal and an assist in the second. Malkin had cooled off a bit recently, tallying just two points in his previous seven contests, so Tuesday's performance is certainly encouraging. The 36-year-old center has been particularly effective on the man advance this season, where he's logged 18 of his 37 points. Malkin now has 14 goals and 25 assists through 40 games this season.

  • Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Generates helper in win

    Malkin recorded an assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Coyotes.

    This was Malkin's second point in his last six games, and he's also gone minus-4 in that span. His drop in production has largely correlated with the Penguins' six-game losing skid, which ended Sunday, and the absence of Kris Letang (personal/lower body). Despite the slump, Malkin still has a formidable 35 points (16 on the power play) with 111 shots on net and a minus-2 rating through 39 outings this season.

  • Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Good to go

    Malkin will play Sunday versus Carolina, Danny Shirey of DK Pittsburgh Sports reports.

  • Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Dealing with injury

    Malkin (leg/knee) suffered an injury in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Panthers. He was seen with an ice bag on his knee following the contest, Josh Yohe of The Athletic reports.

    Malkin put up a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in the win. The goal came at a cost -- a Sidney Crosby shot deflected off of Malkin and in, causing the Russian center to leave the game in pain. His presence in media-accessible areas of the locker room suggests his injury isn't significant, but it'll be something to keep an eye on heading into Sunday's game versus the Hurricanes. Malkin has 10 goals, 21 assists, 14 power-play points and 99 shots on net through 30 games this season.

  • Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Extends point streak to three games

    Malkin (illness) registered a power-play assist in a 4-1 win versus Columbus on Tuesday.

    Malkin's availability for Tuesday's contest was in question after he missed Monday's practice because of the illness. He recorded an assist on Sidney Crosby's goal at 10:14 of the second period.

  • Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: In Tuesday's lineup

    Malkin (illness) will play Tuesday versus the Blue Jackets.

  • Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Deemed game-time decision

    Malkin (illness) was labeled a game-time call by coach Mike Sullivan ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Jackets, telling reporters, "We anticipate that they will play, but they are all game-time decisions."

    Malkin was in attendance for Tuesday's optional skate and the team hasn't elevated anybody from the minors, so all signs would seem to point to Malkin and Sidney Crosby (illness) being available. If Malkin does suit up, he will no doubt be eager to end his six-game goal drought during which he has registered 18 shots and four helpers.

  • Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Absent from practice

    Malkin is dealing with an illness that kept him out of practice Monday. Coach Mike Sullivan told reporters, "We thought it was best to keep them away from the rink. We'll see how they feel in the morning," per Pens Inside Scoop.

    Malkin is currently stuck in a six-game goal drought during which he has registered 18 shots and four assists, including a pair with the man advantage. In addition to Malkin, Sidney Crosby and Casey DeSmith were also held out Monday due to illness. If neither Malkin nor Crosby can play versus Columbus on Tuesday, the Penguins will likely have to insert both Jeff Carter and Teddy Blueger into top-six roles.

  • Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Streak ends but nets deciding play

    Malkin scored the deciding shootout goal Wednesday in a 2-1 win over Calgary.

    It was a beautiful backhand move that froze Dan Vladar. Unfortunately, Malkin had his point streak end at seven games (three goals, five assists), but he delivered three shots and two hits on the night. He has 20 points (eight goals, 12 assists) in 20 games this season.

  • Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Scores in 1,000th game

    Malkin scored a goal on three shots and blocked three shots in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Blackhawks.

    It was a special game for both teams, as the Blackhawks honored the career of Marian Hossa in a pregame ceremony, while Malkin skated in his 1,000th regular-season game. Malkin would get the last laugh, netting a second-period tally to contribute to the Penguins' win. The 36-year-old has had an illustrious career to date with 452 goals and 714 assists. His tally Sunday gave him 20 points (eight goals, 12 helpers) in 19 contests this season, showing that he can still be productive. He's gotten on the scoresheet in seven consecutive outings, amassing three goals and five helpers in that span.

  • Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Misses practice Monday

    Malkin was excused from Monday's practice session for personal reasons, with coach Mike Sullivan telling reporters, "He's fine," per Rob Rossi of The Athletic.

    Based on Sullivan's comments, Malkin should be expected to suit up against the Leafs on Tuesday. Additionally, the fact that injured forward Teddy Blueger (upper body) filled in for Malkin at practice indicates the Russian center is expected to retake his usual spot on the second line. Over the last six contests, Malkin has put together three multi-point efforts, racking up a combined three goals and five assists.
