  • Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Preparing for 2018-19 campaign

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/8/18) Malkin will turn his attention to next season after the Penguins were bounced from the playoffs by Washington on Monday.

    Having played in 57 postseason games over the past three years, Malkin seemed gassed at times versus the Capitals. This was never more evident than in Game 6, in which the Russian failed to secure a point and registered just one shot, despite logging 19:55 of ice time. Playoffs aside, the 31-year-old had another tremendous season, including leading the team in points (98), goals (42) and game-winners (seven). The elite center also stayed relatively healthy and logged 78 contests -- the most since 2008-09 when he appeared in all 82. Throughout Malkin's career, he has averaged over a point per game (1.19) and there should be little doubt he can continue that pace heading into 2018-19.

    Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Pots Game 4 winner

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/3/18) Malkin scored the game-winning goal on the power play in Thursday's 3-1 Game 4 victory over Washington.

    Malkin's diving effort appeared to be stymied right at the goal line, but further review concluded that the puck did indeed cross the line. That tally late in the second broke a 1-1 tie and helped Pittsburgh even the series at two games apiece.

    Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Gearing up for Game 3

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/1/18) Malkin (lower body) will play in Game 3 against the Capitals on Tuesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    After sitting out the last three outings, Malkin is ready to help the Penguins take the lead in the conference semifinals. The 31-year-old pivot was chippy and served 18 PIM in four games against the Caps during the regular season, but that didn't stop him from compiling two goals and four helpers against the divisional foes. Expect Malkin to be an offensive force in Game 3 with an added physical presence.

    Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Game-time decision Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/30/18) Malkin (lower body) will be a game-time call for Game 3 against the Capitals on Tuesday.

    In their opening-round matchup with Philadelphia, the Penguins' power play was clicking at 20 percent. Through two games against Washington, Pittsburgh has been unable to convert once, despite five opportunities. To say that the team's struggles are entirely due to Malkin's absence might be a stretch, but considering he racked up 38 points during the regular season with the man advantage -- it's certainly a big factor. The Russian also plays a significantly more physical style than his All-Star teammates Phil Kessel and Sidney Crosby, which could help the Pens stand up to the Capitals in Game 3 -- if he is available.

    Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Won't play in Game 2

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/29/18) Malkin (lower body) is out for Game 2 versus the Capitals on Sunday, Sam Werner of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    This will be the third straight game the Penguins will be without their star center, but coach Mike Sullivan said he could play Game 3 on Tuesday. Malkin's absence will allow Carter Rowney to work as the fourth-line center, but it severely inhibits the Penguins' depth. Malkin compiled three goals and five points through five games in the conference quarterfinals, while Rowney had just five points in 44 regular-season contests.
