Tampa Bay pregame

Here’s what I think is the most interesting part of the pregame chatter before the Evgeni Malkin-less Penguins take on the red-hot Tampa Bay Lightning tonight: How does Malkin’s absence change how Sidney Crosby is defended? And will that change …

2016 NHL All-Star Game Recap: Great Scott!

Tarasenko picks up a couple of assists, but the Pacific rules the day. Atlantic Division Vs. Metropolitan Division: The Eastern Conference would take the stage first in the 3 on 3 tournament. The 20 minute games would consist of two ten minute periods.  Penalties would only be one minute instead of two. The goalies for each team would play one ten minute period. With that being said... The Metropolitan Division would open up the scoring a minute into the contest. Kris Letang would be the man to score the first goal in the new format. Evgeni Malkin would get the assist on the play. The...

Back to reality

After the Metropolitan Division lost 4-3 to the Atlantic in the first game of the three-game All-Star tournament today in Nashville, Penguins representatives Kris Letang and Evgeni Malkin were released from their All-Star obligations. Both seemed to enjoy their time …

John Scott scores twice, hits, fights, roasts JR, steals show, wins All-Star MVP

It's John Scott's world, and we're all living in it. Let's recap the best All-Star Game in quite a while. Game 1: Atlantic 4, Metropolitan 3 It took just one minute for the Metro to get on the board, when Kris Letang sniped a goal past Roberto Luongo. But the scoring came at a slower pace than expected, as the goaltending was quite exceptional for a 3-on-3 game, with the most memorable save coming from Luongo stopping this blistering shot by Evgeni Malkin. Each team had 22 shots on the game, meaning there were chances aplenty in this game, and the score was within one goal the entire 20...

2016 NHL All-Star Game Recap: John Scott Earns MVP In Heartfelt Evening

It's the moment we've all been waiting for on this All-Star weekend! The NHL All-Star Game has finally reached us, and I'm going to do my best to recap the chaotic three-on-three event for you. Go easy on me, I'm new at this. Let's go! Atlantic vs Metropolitan First Half: Scoring opened up quick (shocker) Kris Letang scored a goal setup by Evgeni Malkin. Dylan Larkin is officially a minus-one at this stage of the game. The next goal came for team Atlantic, Erik Karlsson sniped one home, Larkin drew the assist. Let me take a moment to talk about Dylan Larkin and Erik Karlsson's chemistry...

Evegeni Malkin thinks Patrick Marleau is NHL's most underrated player

I'm liking Geno more and more all the time. The Players' Tribune is at this year's All-Star Game in Nashville and passed out a list of questionnaire's to a few All Stars, one of whom was Pittsburgh Penguin forward Evgeni Malkin. There's some good stuff in here, including a great stick figure self portrait, but the most important to Sharks fans is who he marked down as the most underrated player in the NHL...Patrick Marleau. It's an interesting take, as I wouldn't even consider Marleau the most underrated player on the Sharks (I know, I know, picking Marc-Edouard Vlasic is basically a...

A Sporcle quiz and notes from practice

Evgeni Malkin’s hat trick against Vancouver the other day was the 10th of his career. I looked it up, and he’s one of only six active NHL players with double-digit hat tricks. There are only 26 with at least five …

Sean Couturier out vs. Penguins with 'lower body injury'; Jordan Weal may debut

Lucky break for Evgeni Malkin. Sean Couturier is day-to-day with what the Flyers are calling a lower-body injury and he'll miss Thursday night's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. We thought he had an upper-body injury -- he was reportedly seen getting an examination on his jaw -- but who the hell knows. In any event, it's a big blow to the Flyers chances tonight: Couturier plays some of his best hockey against Pittsburgh, and he's been known to frustrate both Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby with his Selke Trophy-caliber defensive play. In fact, he frustrates Pittsburgh so much that...
