Penguins' Malkin to miss trip to Boston

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

Obviously he's been my favorite goalie since I grew up. He's kind of close to my hometown so I've been watching him my whole life. It's a pretty special moment for me to score two goals on Lundqvist in such an important game as this.
