Malkin vs. Crosby; Who’s the Penguins leader?

Things went from bad to worse as the slumping Penguins fell down to the 9th spot in the East.  They simply couldn’t stop the bleeding.  They kept competetive but they just couldn’t find the net with any consistancy and the 6 game slide starting in December threatened to be an endless trend as the list of injuries continued to grow.  Sure, the Pens were fighting the injury...

Malkin, Penguins skate by Hurricanes in SO

Evgeni Malkin doesn't necessarily go out on the ice with a game plan. The way he's playing, he doesn't exactly need one.

Malkin leads way to victory

Evgeni Malkin has played some terrific hockey lately. Quite possibly the finest of his career. But maybe, just maybe, not his best of this season. That, defenseman Brooks Orpik suggested after the Penguins' 2-1 shootout victory against Carolina Tuesday night at Consol Energy Center, might still be coming.

Streaking Penguins beginning to show their fighting spirit

Aside from center Evgeni Malkin's brilliance, the Penguins are winning games again because of a return to their physical roots.

Penguins 2, Hurricanes 1, SO

James Neal beat Carolina's Cam Ward on the stick side in the shootout to lift the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 2-1 victory over the Hurricanes on Tuesday night.

Pens' Malkin named No. 3 NHL star for last week

Penguins center Evgeni Malkin has been named the NHL's No. 3 star for the week that ended Sunday.

Boudreau Can’t Believe Hiller Was Not A Star Of The Week

from Jeff Miller of the Ducks Blog, “When you’re out West, you don’t get the love you do when you’re out East,” the Ducks coach said Tuesday. “There’s no way that (Jonas) Hiller shouldn’t have been one of the three stars of the week.” Ah, yes, the East Coast bias. When the NHL named its three stars Monday, the Ducks’ goalie was not mentioned. Instead, Ottawa...

Anderson, Stalberg, Malkin named NHL's Three Stars

Craig Anderson certainly improved upon last week's Third Star ranking. This week, the Ottawa Senators goaltender was named the NHL's First Star after winning three games - including one by shutout over the league-leading New York Rangers. Anderson has posted an 8-0-1 mark in his last nine games. Chicago Blackhawks forward Viktor Stalberg was named the NHL's Second...

Sunday’s Three Stars: Evgeni Malkin’s 5-spot vs. Tampa Bay; Rene Bourque head shot?

No. 1 Star: Evgeni Malkin, Pittsburgh Penguins For all the reasons we listed earlier, Malkin's 5-point game — including a natural hat trick — in the Penguins' 6-3 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning was the performance of the day. No. 2 Star: Jason Blake, Anaheim Ducks The Ducks continue their post-"GM says everyone must go!" run with a 4-2 win at the Vancouver...

Paul Martin has shaken off a slow start and injuries

The pass from Evgeni Malkin came from the far side of the slot as Paul Martin pinched hard on a back-door play. Carolina goaltender Cam Ward had moved out to guard against a Malkin shot. The setting was perfect. Until Martin missed the unguarded net. "Oh, yeah, it was wide open," Martin said of a play Tuesday night that could have given the Penguins a lead in a tight game.

Rangers burned by Pens at Garden

NEW YORK (AP) - Richard Park scored the go-ahead goal 2:23 into the third period, Evgeni Malkin padded the lead with two, and workhorse Marc-Andre Fleury made 30 saves to give the suddenly hot Pittsburgh Penguins a 4-1 victory over the New York...
