Pittsburgh Penguins (13-6-0) @ Florida Panthers (5-9-4) ROOT, FS-F - 7:30 pm/et BB&T Center - Sunrise, FL The last time the Penguins played the Panthers, Malkin was injured. Hopefully nothing like that happens tonight. Season Series: 1-0-0 Last meeting that counted: February 22, 2013. Penguins won 3-1. What we said in our recap: 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 on the second night of a Pennsylvania back-to-back. They looked like they were just waiting to die. And Matt Niskanen fired the shot that killed them. The Pens got another GWG from the defense this week. Two more points in NHL bank city. Know Your Enemy: Litter Box Cats What they're saying: Other than what may amount to some "bad blood" between the Cats and Penguins following Erik Gudbranson's (legal) hit on Evgeni Malkin Friday - resulting in a possible concussion for the reigning league MVP - it's pretty standard goings-on from here forward. Expect to see Tomas Vokoun (4-2-2, 2 SO vs FLA) get the start for Dan Bylsma's Boyz. Pittsburgh Penguins Lines: Kunitz - Crosby - Neal Cooke - Sutter - Dupuis Bennett - Jeffrey - Kennedy Glass - Vitale - Adams Orpik - Martin Niskanen - Letang Despres - Engelland Vokoun Florida Panthers Lines: Huberdeau - Shore - Mueller Fleischmann - Goc - Santorelli Matthias - Timmins - Kopecky Skille - Smithson - Parros Campbell - Weaver Kulikov - Gudbranson Strachan - Robak Theodore Lines via Daily Faceoff. Do It. Go Pens.
