PITTSBURGH (AP) -- The Pittsburgh Penguins overcame the loss of one of their top stars and found a way to beat the Florida Panthers.
Matt Niskanen and Dustin Jeffrey scored third-period goals to send the Penguins to a 3-1 victory on Friday.
But center Evgeni Malkin was injured and missed the last 15 minutes of the game.
Chris Kunitz also scored for the Penguins, and goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury made 22 saves in his first start in five days.
Malkin was injured with 15:09 left in the third period. Pittsburgh's second-leading scorer was driving to the net down the left side and was off-balance after releasing the puck when Erik Gudbranson checked him.
Malkin slid back-first into the end boards, his head snapped backward and he remained down on the ice for several moments, but skated off on his own. There was no penalty on the play.
Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma said that Malkin was being evaluated and they'd know more on Saturday.
Teammate James Neal called it a "toug...
BEST OF MAXIM
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...

CAN'T GET ENOUGH
Analysts of any sport are paid to use intelligent words when describing the games, players, coaches, etc. NBC Sports Network’s Mike Milbury shouldn’t get paid much. During Wednesday’s Flyers/Penguins game while describing how Penguins’ studs Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin can’t get enough of scoring goals and making plays on offense, he used a term that doesn’t fit...

PUSHING AND SHOVING
For anyone that wants to question the toughness of Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin, they might want to check out this clip from the Penguins/Panthers game on this Friday night. In the third period of play, Malkin was knocked hard into the boards by Florida defenseman Erik Gudbranson and keep an eye on his neck as it snaps back from the collision: Malkin's current...
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...
Evgeni Malkin got thrown into the boards by Florida’s Erik Gudbranson with 15 minutes left in the third Period and didn’t return. It looked like he may have gotten whiplash. He also looked a little woozy as he headed to the locker room. The Pens went on to score two goals after he left and won the game 3-1.

Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin are two of the most aggressive offensive players in the NHL, and NBC Sports analyst Mike Milbury found a new way to describe that offensive hunger on Wednesday night.
The outspoken analyst has a unique way of giving hot hockey takes, and Wednesday night was no different, as Milbury used what’s usually looked at as an insult to describe the Pittsburgh...

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...
NBC's Mike Milbury is no stranger to controversial comments. In fact, viewers have become so accustomed to his antics that it takes something pretty special to break through and stir things up. As if he was aware of this fact, Milbury described Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin as "crack addicts" when referring to their play in the offensive zone.
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...
