Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Seemingly losing cool in playoffs

Malkin racked up a dozen PIM on Wednesday, getting hit with a game misconduct for the second straight contest against the Senators in these conference finals.

You can tell that the Sens are getting under the Russian's skin, as he's amassed 20 PIM -- not including a roughing minor in Game 2 -- in the waning moments of the last two fiery matches. Malkin has provided a goal and an assist in this series, but the Penguins are down 2-1 and can ill afford to watch the star pivot open himself up to costly penalties or let him get out of control emotionally.
