AUDIO: MALKIN "GETS IT," SPEAKS TO PRESS!!

After one whole day, Evgeni Malkin finally spoke to the press so the Beaver County Times can call off it's goons.

Tuesdays With Stoosh 1.15.2013

A conundrum, if you will...     If the Penguins have one major question mark heading into this season, it’s what the team brings back on the blueline. Kris Letang, Paul Martin and Brooks Oprik were 1-2-3 in terms of minutes per game among Pens defensemen last year and they all return.
