Malkin practices with Penguins, not cleared to play

Thursday, 04.02.2015 / 4:19 PM / News

Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin skated at practice Thursday but is not cleared to play, coach Mike Johnston said.

Malkin did not play Wednesday in a 4-1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers because of an undisclosed injury and was declared day-to-day. Johnston said they found the injury when Malkin was evaluated Tuesday.

Malkin participated in the majority of drills at practice Thursday and the Penguins will see how he reacts. Johnston is hopeful Malkin can return this weekend when the Penguins play the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday and the Flyers on Sunday, but that depends on what doctors have to say the next few days.

"With anything that's really nagging right now you want to be careful," Johnston said. "You just don't want to aggravate it so it spirals into something that could be a longer term"

Lucic does heavy lifting as Bruins battle for playoffs

Thursday, 04.02.2015 / 12:00 PM / Top Performer

With the Boston Bruins fighting to maintain a spot in the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs, forward Milan Lucic is doing his best to keep them there.

Lucic scored three goals in the past week, including his second multigoal game of the season against the New York Rangers, and the winner against the Florida Panthers in a crucial game in the race for the second wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Eastern Conference.

"You talk about those four-point games where you're able to get two points but also not let them get anything," Lucic said after scoring the game-winner against Florida. "So I think it makes it that much bigger of a win to be able to come out and win that one in regulation."

Playoff Countdown: Bruins in pursuit of Red Wings

Thursday, 04.02.2015 / 11:12 AM / Expert Picks

Saturday, April 11, marks the conclusion to the 2014-15 regular season. Yet, much remains to be decided in the frantic run to the finish line, including playoff positioning and numerous individual accomplishments and milestones. To celebrate the countdown to the end of the season and the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs on April 15, will provide a piece of playoff-related content each day.

It wasn't long ago the Boston Bruins had slipped out of the second wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Eastern Conference and their run at an eighth straight postseason berth seemed in serious jeopardy.

With a regulation win Thursday at the Detroit Red Wings, the Bruins (39-25-13) would tie the Red Wings (40-23-13) with 93 points. Detroit would still hold down third place in the Atlantic Division by virtue of having played one fewer game, but it would continue a late-season trend that has seen the Bruins come on strong and the Red Wings start to fade.
