PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Evgeni Malkin stepped up when Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby battled concussion problems for the better part of two seasons.
Now, it's Crosby's turn to return the favor.
Crosby had two goals and an assist to lead Pittsburgh past the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-3 on Sunday night in the Penguins' first game since reigning MVP Malkin was injured.
"They're a dangerous team, so we wanted to make sure we played in their end as much as we could," Crosby said. "They don't need much room in order to create chances."
Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said Malkin was diagnosed with a concussion after slamming back-first into the end boards during Friday night's win over Florida.
Bylsma said Malkin, whose head snapped back when he hit the boards, initially suffered short-term memory loss, but he is improving. Still, Malkin will not join the team when it begins a three-game road swing Tuesday.
"He's feeling fine and his m...

Crosby becomes the first person in CEC history to be able to use the wireless.
Could you imagine anyone else doing such a thing?
Wonder if there will be outrage about this from Don Cherry or some old annoying player? Mario Lemieux probably would have been looking up pics of elite wine if he had an iPad on the bench.
Before the discussion even comes up, lets make it clear that this was not a dirty hit by Florida Panthers defenseman Erik Gudbranson. It was a completely legal hit, and this was just a casualty of both players being very big, skating very fast and being close to the boards. Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin was driving wide in the third period to try and get a shot. As...

The following is how we fully expect the media (and some fans) to react regarding Evgeni Malkin's concussion. This is not our opinion. This is a joke.
Evgeni Malkin is experiencing concussion symptoms. Or so we're told. Of course, Malkin hasn't spoken to the media directly about the injury. It's just another sign that the Russian star doesn't "get...
In early February I last picked an MVP for the early season. Tomas Vanek of the Buffalo Sabres was my pick. He was leading the NHL in scoring at that point. Since then Vanek has been passed in the scoring race and his Buffalo Sabres are in trouble after firing their coach.
The MVP race today comes to two players: Steve Stamkos of the Tampa Bay Lightning and Sidney Crosby...

Maybe if everyone speculates and guesses hard enough and asks enough questions to enough people, Evgeni Malkin's injury will heal itself.
If there even is an injury at all, that is.
Also, there's a hockey game today...

The last time the Penguins played the Panthers, Malkin was injured. Hopefully nothing like that happens tonight.

Last meeting that counted: February 22, 2013. Penguins won 3-1.
What we said in our recap:...
Wednesday night, we were all treated to a great hockey game. Friday night, we got an ordinary one. No one would talk about this game ever again if it weren't for an apparent big-time injury to Evgeni Malkin. Malkin went crashing into the boards early in the third period. It looked horrible.
This game had a good pace to it at the beginning, but Florida was...
