Malkin stays hot, Penguins handle Red Wings

Malkin stays hot, Penguins handle Red Wings

Malkin had two goals and two assists, and the Penguins beat the Red Wings 4-1 on Saturday for their third consecutive victory. He was drafted by the Red Wings in the third round in 2014 and has not yet played in an National Hockey League game.

The big change over the past few games?

Malkin, Kessel and Crosby have led the way during the winning streak, combining for nine goals and 23 points. Their three-game win streak is their longest since they won four in a row from late November into December.

The Penguins shrugged off the goal without much of a problem. The Chicago Blackhawks are averaging 3.1 goals per game and are scoring on 15.8 percent of their power play opportunities. The ones in white are where neither of them scored or assisted. So then when you don't, first of all usually when you shoot it, you get it back. "They're elite players. They're difference-makers, and they tend to make the guys around them better".

"First thing that jumps out to me is his willingness to shoot the puck and not look for the next play", said Sullivan. "I dont think we rest on that. You're the most unsafe scoring threat on that line'".

Malkin's second goal of the game came 2:08 into the second period with Kessel recording an assist.


Game highlights: Sean Couturier had two goals and an assist as the Flyers beat the host Devils 5-3.

The teams traded power-play goals later in the period. Give me the home team here. "Your game is better, the mood is better, and now were feeling so much better". "The plan is to keep doing it".

Perched in his locker stall between crowds of reporters trying to interview stars du jour Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel on Saturday afternoon, winger Carl Hagelin said six magic words Penguins fans have been waiting for and opponents have dreaded. Kessel has eight points in his last five games, while Crosby has 10 in his last five. Of the eight goals they did not record a point on, they were still on the ice for three of them. Malkin has scored in three straight games.

Overall on the season when the Penguins get at least one goal from Crosby or Malkin, they are 17-6-1. As I pointed out a couple of weeks ago, that is a significant drop in the team's ability to win from a season ago when neither Crosby or Malkin scored (a half goal per game drop, and a points percentage of only.333 versus.466 a year ago).

"Those guys drive the ship". "We're going to go as they go, and they're so dynamic when they're on the top of their game and they're so risky in every aspect of their game". "They took care of business on the power play, and we didnt". That is what changed in 2016 and 2017. He amassed 152 points (67-85-152) in 259 regular season games from 2011-16.
