Malkin recorded an assist against the Kings on Saturday, extending his point streak to six games. Malkin's 14 goals have him sitting fifth on the team, but he remains third in overall points behind just Sidney Crosby and Phil Kessel. The Russian winger will look to make it seven in a row in Tuesday's clash with the Sharks.
Malkin generated a goal among four points -- including a power-play assist -- in a 7-4 victory over the Ducks on Friday. It hasn't been the ideal season for Malkin, but he may be heating up and due for a big second half. Malkin has two goals and nine points in his last five games, giving him 14 goals and 49 points in 44 contests. He rallied the Penguins while down 3-0 early in the second period against the Ducks -- including that marker, Pittsburgh scored seven of the final eight goals on the night. Malkin still has a chance to reach 30 goals and 90 points this season.
Malkin tallied a helper in Sunday's 5-3 defeat to Chicago. While the team may have seen an eight-game winning streak come to a close, Malkin recorded a at least a point in his third straight contest. Once again, the Russian center is averaging more than a point per game this season, a feat he has achieved in all but one of his 13 NHL campaigns.
Malkin is in the midst of his eighth straight season averaging more than a point per game. Malkin has 11 goals and 37 points in 36 games. Like every year, he's been hard to keep off the scoresheet in 2018-19 with his longest drought spanning just four games. The Russian has scored two goals and seven points in 12 games in the month of December, so it's been a bit of a slow month for the Pens' star. That said, he remains one of the most coveted players in fantasy.
Malkin scored a goal and an assist in a 6-3 victory against the Avalanche on Tuesday. He had a three-game pointless streak entering Tuesday, so this ends that slump. That's not much of a slump, but Malkin did also post a minus-7 rating in those three games with no points. He has work to do to bring his plus/minus back to the positive (he's also at minus-7 for the season), but Malkin has 10 goals and 32 points in 26 games.
