Malkin has goal, 2 assists before leaving game with injury in Penguins' 4-1 win over Red Wings

DETROIT - Evgeni Malkin had a goal and two assists before hurting his left leg early in the third period of the Pittsburgh Penguins' 4-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night.

NHL scoring leader Sidney Crosby also scored two goals to help the Penguins win.

Malkin got tangled up with Detroit's Luke Glendening, lost his balance and his left skate took the brunt of collision with the boards behind Pittsburgh's net. The Russian forward slowly got up and kept his left skate in the air as he was helped off the ice. He was called for holding on the play, but couldn't serve the penalty because he was being evaluated.

Olli Maatta had Pittsburgh's other goal and Jeff Zatkoff made 28 saves.

Niklas Kronwall gave Detroit a 1-0 lead at 6:09 of the first.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
