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

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
