Looks like the flu is going around and a few guys are down with illness, tis the season!
Shea Weber returns tonight after missing three games after taking a puck to the face. Apparently he’s going to sport a visor now. Get him in there.
Evgeni Malkin did not travel with the team to Boston so he won’t be on the ice tonight. He’s day-to-day with a lower-body injury and is questionable...
BOSTON –When the Bruins and Penguins did battle a couple of weeks ago in Boston, Pittsburgh forward Evgeni Malkin was one of the best players on the ice. Luckily for the B’s, Malkin won’t be anywhere near the TD Garden ice on Saturday night.
Malkin didn’t make the trip to Boston and will miss his second consecutive game with an undisclosed injury. The Penguins didn’t have...
One game against a Stanley Cup contender without Evgeni Malkin went rather swimmingly for the Pittsburgh Penguins. The San Jose Sharks came to town on Thursday and took a 5-1 beating at the hands of the best team in the east. Now we’ll have to see if they can do it twice as Malkin did…
Just one look at the Penguins’ all-time offensive leaders would give any netminder nightmares, but Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr are only the beginning.
In addition to Jagr and Super Mario, the Pens have had many other legendary snipers call Pittsburgh home. Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin are the current squad and both of whom are nearing the franchise’s top 5 scoring list...
The Pittsburgh Penguins had no problems beating one fellow Stanley Cup contender in their latest game despite the absence of Evgeni Malkin.
They'd love to see the same scenario unfold Saturday night in Boston.
With Malkin on the shelf again, the Penguins will try to extend their winning streak to six against a Bruins team that handed them their most recent defeat.

Evgeni Malkin will miss at least one more game with his lower-body injury. He won't be traveling with the team to Boston for tomorrow night's game against the Bruins.
In other injury news, Pascal Dupuis didn't practice today, but he is going to travel with the team. He's listed as "day-to-day." Brooks Orpik had a maintenance day today and also missed...
Facing the second best team in the Western Conference without Evgeni Malkin was not an ideal situation. But it is exactly what the Pittsburgh Penguins had to do tonight after Malkin left the morning skate with a lower body injury. Chuck Kobasew returned to the lineup but that is hardly an even trade. But it…

Pens/Sharks postgame thoughts and analysis.
Evgeni Malkin missed tonight’s game with a lower-body injury.
Is the Pens sellout streak overrated?
Weathermen, DJ’s and writers… Oh my!
Tonight’s game also features the return of Tyler Kennedy.
The Pittsburgh Penguins will face perhaps their toughest matchup of the season thus far tonight, when the San Jose Sharks come to town for a Thursday night showdown.
Unfortunately, they will have to do so without the services of star center Evgeni Malkin, who left practice this morning early after suffering an undisclosed...
First things first: Evgeni Malkin is out tonight with a lower-body injury. He's listed as day-to-day. Malkin has been hot recently, so obviously this is bad news. Even Joe Thornton is disappointed.
Second of all: Tyler Kennedy returns tonight. Apparently the Penguins are planning a tribute to him tonight, which, honestly, makes sense. He was with the team for six seasons...

Penguins center Evgeni Malkin left the morning skate early today after reportedly suffering a lower-body injury. Head coach Dan Bylsma announced that Malkin will not play tonight against the San Jose Sharks and is day-to-day. The 27-year-old has recorded 37 points in 29 games this season, which is the second-most in the NHL.

Carlyle: Kessel will play tonight. Bozak out indefinitely with an oblique strain. Orr out with an elbow injury
Evgeni Malkin and Max Pacioretty were the top guns in Week 9, Malkin with 8 points last week and Pacioretty with 4 points and a whopping 20 shots on goal. Not surprisingly, the Pens have won 4 straight games while the Canadiens are 7-2-1 in their past 10 games.
In the West, the Sharks have regained the lead in the West with 6 straight wins and a 9-1 record in their last 10 games...
Who's Hot: Evgeni Malkin
Once again the Pittsburgh Penguins' pair of former Hart and Art Ross Trophy winners are staging an intramural competition to see which is the best player in the NHL.
In a game on Tuesday in which Sidney Crosby scored the tying goal in the third period and a highlight-reel game-winner through three New York Islanders defenders in overtime, Evgeni...
The 2013-2014 NHL season is grinding its way in the holiday season. For the most part it’s been a season without many surprises. Teams that we expect to be winning are winning, and guys we expect to be scoring are scoring. However, there are a few surprises that have caught our eyes early in the season.
The worst team in the league – the Buffalo Sabres. The best team in the league...
Crosby was quiet for most of this game. And then he wasn't. The captain scored the game tying goal, and then he scored a signature OT classic goal:
Whoa. Pens win 3-2, goals from Crosby and Neal
The Islanders let the Penguins hang around, and then Penguins woke up after being down 2-0. Malkin, Crosby and Neal willed the Pens to the victory. Marc-Andre Fleury kept...
Thanksgiving is all about giving thanks and saying what we are thankful for.
After a slow start, Geno is firing on all cylinders
And Pittsburgh is thankful to have him and thankful for his productivity.
On Tuesday morning, the NHL announced that Evgeni Malkin was the ‘Second Star’ of the month. Malkin was outstanding throughout the entire month.
Malkin finished the month leading...
Big thanks to my bud Lowell for sending this over. He caught it at CONSOL Energy Center during Islanders-Penguins two weeks ago when Sidney Crosby notched his 250th career goal. And since the Pens play the Isles in Hempstead tonight, we might as well relive this horror.
I don't even know where to begin with this maybe Gabe's had a sale
NEW YORK (Dec. 3, 2013) – Chicago Blackhawks right wing Patrick Kane, Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin and Minnesota Wild goaltender Josh Harding have been named the NHL’s “Three Stars” for the month of November. Continue reading "Stars Of The Month"
Evgeni Malkin (1 G, 3 A, 1 SOG, +3, 2 PIM) decided he wasn’t putting in enough effort lately and upped his game with 4 points against the toothless Panthers. He even chipped in 2 PIM for good measure! Geno is on pace for 103 points which wouldn’t in itself be historic, but being on pace for just 21 goals would make it a season for the history books, so expect that this torrid...
Evgeni Malkin might not be thrilled to see the calendar turn after his NHL-best 25-point November, though his first December opponent hasn't done much lately to keep him off the score sheet either.
