Evgeni Malkin to have MRI on elbow, more Fleury trade rumors float

The status of the left elbow of Evgeni Malkin will be known today and some more updates on the Marc-Andre Fleury trade situation that is developing After suffering an elbow injury in March, Evgeni Malkin returned a week early (in time for Game 2 of the Penguins first round playoff matchup) and gutted out a great spring scoring 18 points in 23 games. Pens general manager Jim Rutherford announced yesterday that Malkin would have an MRI today to reveal the current status of the elbow. "This is a guy that had a real serious injury that played before most guys would've played and made a...

Pittsburgh Penguins tweets: disbelief, joy, champions, and thanks

From "can't believe this is real" to "we're bringing Stanley home!" the Pens capture all the emotions. The season is over; the off-season is now upon us. Only this time, instead of an early exit, the Pittsburgh Penguins went the distance - and their off-season is going to be incredible, filled with Stanley Cup adventures (as the Stanley Cup itself is likely filled with multiple babies. Good timing, Evgeni Malkin and Nick Bonino). And while there's still next season to look forward to, today is about celebration. So let's check in with what the Penguins themselves were posting last night and...

Sharks score first two goals, Penguins even it up in frenzied first period

PITTSBURGH - All the talk since the Sharks dropped Game 4 at San Jose was that they must score first in Game 5, something they hadn’t done yet in the Stanley Cup Finals. The Penguins needed less than three minutes to tie it up, first on a power-play goal by Evgeni Malkin after Dainius Zubrus was called for delay of game, and then on a Carl Hagelin’s deflection of a shot by Nick Bonino.

Bonino Embodies the 2016 Penguins

The Pittsburgh Penguins had a disappointing start to their season but after a coaching change and an opportunity to fill-in for an injured Evgeni Malkin, center Nick Bonino has been a key performer during this playoff run. On March 1, this idiot was pretty confident in his tweet. Curious... when does Nick Bonino make me forget about Brandon Sutter's production from last season? — Eric Bowser (@412Eric) March 2, 2016 June 8, this same idiot thinks this guy could have a great game five and win the Conn Smythe. Over three months time, Penguins center Nick Bonino went from bouncing...

Stanley Cup Final 2016: What the Sharks can learn from game four

In the macro, all that matters for the Sharks right now is winning games five, six and seven. Still, given that none of us (I think) will suit up for San Jose on Thursday in Pittsburgh, I think it's okay to try and draw something from what we've seen thus far in this series. Let's start by knocking down some of the wrong lessons. Joe Thornton, Joe Pavelski and Brent Burns all played very well despite not getting on the scoresheet. Say it with me: Just because a player doesn't score doesn't mean they had a bad game. Evgeni Malkin endured some criticism through the first three games of the...

Penguins’ Evgeni Malkin finally makes impression against Sharks

Penguins’ Evgeni Malkin finally makes impression against Sharks The Pittsburgh head coach predicted before Game 4 that Evgeni Malkin wouldn’t be silent for long — at least on the scoresheet — and the Penguins’ center produced his first two points of the Stanley Cup Finals in Monday’s 3-1 win over the Sharks. Malkin, who’d been held scoreless through the first three games and without a goal in his past six games, heeded his coach’s advice to keep things simple in breaking out of his offensive slump. Malkin helped put the Pens on the board at 7:36 of the first period,...

Pens vs Sharks Game 4 Recap

Pittsburgh Penguins @ San Jose Sharks Game 4 Lineups Both teams have the same lineups, which most consequentially means that SJ's Tomas Hertl misses his second game in a row with an undisclosed injury. First Period A good start for Pittsburgh and they're rewarded with the game's first goal. Evgeni Malkin makes a nice play in neutral zone to keep a play going and Phil Kessel swoops into the zone. Kessel fires a shot that Martin Jones kicks out a big juicy rebound, made worse by all the Sharks staring at the puck and none seeing Ian Cole sneak in. https://t.co/apaCxLhWVh — Pittsburgh...
