Coach Sullivan said Evgeni Malkin will return to the lineup tonight after missing the last 23 games with a lower-body injury!
The Pens are back on the ice for an optional morning skate after having Sunday off. Evgeni Malkin is again a full participant, and Brandon Tanev is wearing a regular jersey.
If we did a 2004 NHL Draft redraft:
1) Ovechkin (went 1st)
2) Malkin (went 2nd)
3) Krejci (went 63rd)
4) Wheeler (went 5th) https://t.co/xLalOt87Kq
A reminder how lucky we are to have both Evgeni Malkin AND Sidney Crosby.
In the first period, the Flyers thoroughly outplayed a Penguins team that is leading the division, has won six of their last seven games, and got Evgeni Malkin back tonight. What a weird sport this is.
The Bogle bombers are back !!!! Malkin and Green with back-to-back solo shots. Arkansas leads 3-0 !!
Arkansas plates two in the third on the solo home runs from Malkin and Green. Hogs lead 3-0 bottom three in Baton Rouge.
Malkin hits her 16th home run of the season to left. It's the Hogs first long ball of the weekend against LSU. Razorbacks lead 2-0 in the third.
I don’t think I can handle all the stupid Malkin comments if the Penguins lose this
Sid looks like shit and other than Malkin and Kapanen a few time, there have been 0 completed passes
Malkin haters foaming at the mouth because of this lmaooo
If you think that having Lafferty or Jankowski in the lineup instead of Malkin would have changed the outcome of the first period, please do not reproduce
Has anyone irrationally blamed Malkin for this start yet?
This is all Malkin's fault
Crosby and Malkin went off in the first🔥🔥🔥
better than Bergeron and Krejci???? https://t.co/rznNItqa2Z
Pens better wake up before the playoffs. Just because Malkin is back doesn’t mean it’s time to coast.
OUTTTTTAAAAAAA HERE , Malkin ARKANSAS , VAMOS DE AQUI SEÑORITA PELOTA , Hogs 2- LSU 0. Top of the 3rd, NO OUTS. 88 home runs for the Hogs so far
Forgot to mention that Evgeni Malkin is playing in his first game since March 16 tonight. He’s playing 2C for PIT. Carter moves down to 3C.
Not a good mindset with the playoff starting next week! But, could there be a correlation between their play in the first and the fact that Malkin is back??!!
Having Malkin AND Crosby in the lineup at the same time really is a curse to these Penguins for some reason.
Better when Malkin was sidelined
This game is like the January vintage of the @penguins
. About the only things missing are a Malkin retaliation penalty and a Letang neutral zone turnover.
Malkin should stay hurt. They do better without him. Stupid Sullivan!!!! Doesn’t he see that
That simple put McCann, Zucker and Carter back together! No need to fix and adjust lines because Malkin is back we don’t need him
Can we put Malkin back on the injured list? Asking for a friend...
