Malkin, Penguins frustrated by losses, lack of offense

Wes Crosby - Correspondent

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin said Monday that any frustration he feels is solely because of how the team is playing.

Malkin clarified comments he made Saturday after the Penguins' 4-0 loss to the New Jersey Devils that made it sound like players were angry at each other.

"It's a little bit not what I want to say. It's not mad at each other," he said. "We're a pretty tight team. We support each other. But I mean, when [nothing works] in a game like New Jersey, we start to get a little bit frustrated with each other. It's a little bit new for us. It's a new team. It's not like me and [Sidney Crosby] or whoever [are mad at each other]; it's just the game. We don't like how we play."

There are some things to be frustrated about. The loss was the Penguins' third in four games (1-3-0) since winning nine of their previous 10 (9-1-0). They are 27th in the NHL with an average of 2.06 goals per game, and the power play is 29th at 12.3 percent.

Wild's Parise skates for first time since knee injury

Monday, 11.16.2015 / 2:26 PM / News

Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise skated Monday, the first time he's been on the ice since sustaining a sprained medial collateral ligament in his right knee Nov. 5 against the Nashville Predators, coach Mike Yeo said.

However Parise isn't ready to start playing games yet. The Wild said he is week-to-week with the injury, and Yeo said there is no timetable for his return.

"Zach skated today," Yeo said in a video posted to the Wild website. "He isn't going to travel on the road with us but he will continue to skate. He's getting better and we'll see where he's at when we get back from the road trip."

Fantasy All-Access: Watch Lightning on waiver wire

Sean McCullen - Staff Writer

Every Monday, staff writer Sean McCullen identifies potential waiver-wire pickups and points out lineup moves and schedule impacts for fantasy hockey.

The Tampa Bay Lightning enter the week 22nd in the NHL in goals per game (2.42).

As improbable as it is that they're in the bottom-third in the League in scoring in mid-November, it's just as unlikely they'll be outside the top 10 at the end of the season. There's too much talent on that roster.

Now is the time to pounce, whether it be in a trade or on waivers, and ride the Lightning to fantasy glory.

Panthers' Barkov returning to lineup against Lightning

Monday, 11.16.2015 / 11:44 AM / News

Alain Poupart - Correspondent

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Center Aleksander Barkov will be back in the Florida Panthers lineup Monday against the Tampa Bay Lightning (7:30 p.m. ET; TVA Sports, SUN, FS-F) after missing 10 games because of a broken bone in his right hand.

Barkov, 20, was second on the Panthers with three goals and six points in seven games when he was injured Oct. 22 against the Chicago Blackhawks.

"He's real dependable," Panthers coach Gerard Gallant said. "He's a young player but he's so young at both ends of the ice. He's a 200-foot player and he's a big, strong guy. Faceoffs, power play, penalty killing; he does it all for us. He's a big part of our team. But other guys stepped up and played big roles and that's how you win."

The Panthers went 4-4-2 during Barkov's absence.

Ovi goes for record again; Rangers seek 10th in row

Monday, 11.16.2015 / 3:00 AM / Weekly Primer

Brian Compton - Deputy Managing Editor

It appeared on two occasions in the Washington Capitals' past three games that captain Alex Ovechkin scored to set the record for most NHL goals scored by a Russian-born player. Each time, though, the apparent goal was taken away following a video review.

Ovechkin will get another chance to pass Sergei Fedorov when the Capitals face the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena on Wednesday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVA Sports).

Ovechkin has 483 goals in 775 NHL games, the most of any player since he entered the League in 2005. Fedorov had 483 in 1,248 games with the Red Wings, Anaheim Ducks, Columbus Blue Jackets and Capitals.

"I haven't talked to him about it, but the best advice I can give him is to play your normal game," Capitals coach Barry Trotz said. "He's scored a gazillion goals in this league, and to our team: Don't look for Ovi to score that goal. Don't overpass. He's scored a lot of goals. Play the way we play, and I guarantee you, he will score that goal, and he'll score many after that."
