Penguins' Malkin to miss trip to Boston
Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin will not travel with the team to Boston for a game Saturday at the Bruins.

Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin will not travel with the team for a game Saturday at the Boston Bruins (7 p.m. ET, NHLN-US).

It will be the second straight game Malkin has missed due to a lower-body injury. He sat out the Penguins' game Thursday against the San Jose Sharks.

Malkin is in the midst of a nine-game point streak that has brought him to second in the NHL in scoring with 37 points in 29 games, four points behind teammate Sidney Crosby.

Quote of the Day

I've never seen anything like that. The great thing is I don't know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing. It's not the way we draw it up, to go 20 rounds here, but obviously it's a big win.
