Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin is confident the Eastern Conference Final will return to Consol Energy Center for Game 7 against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday.

"I believe in my team, I believe in myself," Malkin said Monday. "We're coming back to Pittsburgh for sure."

To do that they'll have win Game 6 at Amalie Arena in Tampa on Tuesday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports). The Penguins trail the best-of-7 series 3-2 after a 4-3 overtime loss in Game 5.

Malkin has four goals and 12 points in 15 games in the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs, including a goal and two assists in his past three games. He had 27 goals and 58 points in 57 regular-season games.
