Malkin's Powerplay Resurgence

Evgeni Malkin is scoring tons of goals when the Penguins are on the man advantage this year. What is he doing differently? The Penguins have the best powerplay in the league this year, and much of that is due to Evgeni Malkin. Malkin is second on the team in powerplay points and first in powerplay goals. Despite the fact that he is a generational talent, he hasn't always been this dominant when the team is up a man. In fact, his powerplay shooting percentage in previous years was downright woeful. That's not really his fault, though. Funky things can happen in hockey. Let me show you...

Komarov Comes Up Big, Comeau a Little Bigger (PIT 4, TOR 3 OT)

The Leafs didn't have much of an answer for superstar Evgeni Malkin and linemate Blake Comeau, but after an ugly opening goal, the Leafs made a game of it. The Toronto Maple Leafs played the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night and -- oh, sorry, there was a goal against during that introduction. The Leafs lost the puck following the opening face-off, had no answer for the quick rush down the wing, and Blake Comeau put up the first goal 26 seconds in. Malkin scored a power play goal later in the period, but the second was all about Komarov: Two goals. Comeau matched Komarov with a tipped...

Pens Leafs Recap: Comeau's hat trick powers Pittsburgh

The Pittsburgh Penguins win in OT 4-3 over Toronto after a hat-trick from Blake Comeau. The Pittsburgh Penguins stars shined bright in their 4-3 overtime win against the Toronto Maple Leafs, but it was a hat trick from an unlikely source that pushed them to the win. Blake Comeau capped off his third goal of the game in OT, Evgeni Malkin scored a goal and two assists and Sidney Crosby tacked on two assists in the win. Comeau also opened the scoring, getting to the front of the net and putting the puck by Jonathan Bernier. The Pens would push the lead to 2 in the first period with Malkin...

Canadiens vs Penguins Top Six Minutes: Penguins Magical in Montreal

The Penguins third line of Bennett, Sutter, and Downie head an effort to defeat the Canadiens 4-0. First things first, I guess i should introduce myself. My name is Mike Darnay, from PensBurgh, and I am really excited that Andrew, one of my fellow firemen, invited me to come do a guest post here. I love the Penguins and my two pugs. And i unequivocally love Evgeni Malkin. Olli Maatta back in action, just 2 weeks after having a cancerous tumor removed from his neck after being expected to miss 4 weeks. What an incredible young man. How long will the Canadian and American anthems be...

Talking to Myself: Letang, Malkin, and More

I talk Kris Letang, two of my least favorite parts of hockey, and channel Chris Rock and Mr. Miyagi while talking about Evgeni Malkin. All that and more, in this week’s Talking to Myself! November 10th, Penguins Live Brian Metzer characterized Kris Letang as "much improved," adding "the plays he made away from the puck and on defense really stood out for me, broke up a 2 on 1 that game." Adam Gretz said "of all the plays he had in that game, that was the play that stood out for me. He’s been tremendous this season." He also talked about the risk/reward with 58: "A guy that plays that...

Rangers win, then lose all in one game; Old friends and new foes; Mats Zuccarello's free agency

Today's New York Rangers morning notes. Well...that was a frustrating Saturday night tilt, eh? The Rangers seemingly won a game they were soundly outplayed in when Dan Boyle scored in a shootout against the Penguins on Saturday. That is, until Dan Boyle's goal was called back because he double-tapped the puck. Everyone had to jump back on the benches, and Evgeni Malkin and company were grinning. They were more than emotionally invested and, of course, the Penguins managed to score on their next opportunity. Fleury stoned Rick Nash to win the game. Le sigh. [New York Post] [Pen's Labyrinth]...

Dan Girardi on facing Ryan Callahan for first time: It's going to be a little different

Dan Girardi's chest and shoulder were sore after being freight-trained by Evgeni Malkin in the third period of Saturday's 3-2 shootout loss in Pittsburgh.

Penguins 3, Rangers 2 (SO): Rewind

What it means: First off, it means Dan Girardi is not seriously hurt after that definitely appeared the case as he skated off the ice slowly and shakily at 13:47 of the third period after a freight-train hit from Evgeni Malkin that he never saw coming. Also,  the Rangers lost a shootout game they thought they had won as video review ultimately confirmed correctly that Dan Boyle’s apparent shootout winner should not have counted because he hit the puck a second time after hit off the post. So the Rangers drop to 7-6-4 having played past regulation in five of their last eight. The bad news...

Pride Fuels Pens

Emotion can be a fickle thing during the regular season but on back to back nights, Penguins displayed the pride needed to fuel two emotional victories. It was a good thing Saturday night to see Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin emotionally invested into a hockey game. Over the last few years, when things got tough, Crosby and Malkin got... hiding. Crosby's intensity was quite evident as he was chewing out the officials for their whistle swallowing on a few occasions, twice slamming his stick against the boards and glass. He went full mouth-off mode with the officials after they assessed a...

Postgame: Extras after Saturday’s 3-2 shootout win

I really wanted to blog about this game serving as a proper response to Tuesday’s 5-0 loss at Madison Square Garden. Or even Evgeni Malkin getting two minutes for a nasty – but clean – hit because he defended himself …

Penguins 3,  Rangers 2 (SO): Girardi OK after Malkin hit to chest; NHL explanation of Boyle no goal

Dan Girardi was sitting at his locker in the Rangers’ room at the Consol Energy Center following Saturday night’s bizarre 3-2 shootout loss to the Penguins almost like nothing happened. But his chest area was pretty sore after Evgeni Malkin’s hard check behind the Rangers’  crease at 13:47 of the third period. Girardi remained on the ice for a couple of minutes before heading directly to the Rangers’ room. But Girardi said he did not have to go through the league concussion protocol to return to the game. “Yeah, I feel OK,” Girardi said. “Obviously you don’t see a guy...
