Speculation is a killer. Before the game some members of the media speculated Evgeni Malkin had a sunburn:
In Molinari's defense he may have been joking, and he wasn't the only one.
But it turned into this:
'sunburn' is now trending in #Pittsburgh trendsmap.com/us/pittsburgh

Other outlets, including The Sporting News, CBS's blog eye on hockey, the score to name a few picked the story up.
The Penguins cleared up the matter after the game:
Malkin day-to-day with upper-body injury, reaggravated and dealing with nagging injury, per coach Bylsma #Pens

Hopefully a picture emerges of Malkin and Taylor Swift putting sun tan lotion on each other.
