Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Three-point night in Jersey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Malkin scored two goals, including the game-winner, and an assist in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Devils.

It was the rare game in which Sidney Crosby was held off the scoresheet, but Malkin more than picked up the slack. The 33-year-old has a five-game point streak going during which he's racked up four goals and 11 points, and on the season Malkin is now up to 25 goals -- the 10th time in his career he's reached that mark -- and 74 points through 55 games.

Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Keeps racking up helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Malkin picked up two assists -- one on the power play -- to go with four shots in Thursday's 4-2 win over Buffalo.

That's six helpers for Malkin in the last two games. The Russian center has 69 points in 52 games and would be among the league's scoring leaders if he hadn't missed time due to injuries. You have to go back to Malkin's 109-point campaign over 75 games in 2011-12 to find the last time he compiled points at a higher per-game rate.

Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Erupts for four helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Malkin picked up four assists, one on the power play, in Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Senators.

After failing to find the scoresheet in two straight games, Malkin made up for lost time Tuesday. The 33-year-old now has 21 goals and 67 points through 51 games, setting him up for a very big finish to the season.

Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Collects assist in 900th game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Malkin registered an assist, four shots on goal and two hits in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Kings.

The Russian center set up Bryan Rust for the Penguins' lone goal of the game. Malkin is on a three-game point streak with three tallies and two helpers in that span. For the year, the 33-year-old has 63 points (21 goals, 42 assists), 153 shots and a plus-12 rating in 48 outings. Malkin played in his 900th NHL game Wednesday -- he's racked up 1,065 points throughout his 14-year career.

Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Two-point effort against Caps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Malkin scored a goal and an assist in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Capitals.

His third-period goal was a thing of beauty, but it was the only offense the Pens could muster in a frame otherwise dominated by the opposition. Malkin has five goals and nine points through nine games in February, and even having missed a total of 14 games so far this season, he appears on his way to his fourth straight 70-point campaign.

Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Carries offense in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Malkin scored two goals in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Sabres.

He was basically a one-man show on an otherwise sluggish afternoon for Pittsburgh -- Patric Hornqvist was the only other Penguin to even get onto the scoresheet, picking up the lone helper on Malkin's second tally. Malkin's now reached 20 goals for the seventh straight campaign and the 12th time in his career, and on the season he has 60 points through only 46 games.

Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Set to play against Leafs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Malkin (illness) is expected back in the lineup versus Toronto on Thursday, Mike DeFabo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Malkin was a last minute scratch against the Maple Leafs on Tuesday yet appears set to rejoin the lineup Thursday. The world-class center figures to not only retake his spot on the second line but also should slot back onto the No. 1 power-play unit. At his current pace, the Russian could push to get back over the 90-point mark before the close of the 2019-20 campaign.

Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Will travel with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Malkin (illness) will make the trip to Toronto for Thursday's clash with the Maple Leafs, Sam Kasan of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

Malkin was a surprise scratch ahead of Tuesday's home game with Toronto due to his illness and missed Wednesday's practice session. If the Russian isn't able to suit up Thursday, Jared McCann figures to remain in the second-line center role.

Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Surprise scratch Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Malkin (illness) will not suit up in Tuesday's game against Toronto, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The Russian left the ice in the middle of warmups. In Malkin's stead, look for Jared McCann to bump up to the second-line center role and Dominik Simon to see action on the power play. Expect the team to update Malkin's status ahead of Thursday's game (also against the Maple Leafs).

Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Scores goal in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Malkin scored a power-play goal in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime defeat to the Lightning.

Malkin finds himself on a five-game point streak and has been held off the scoresheet just twice in 16 games in 2020. At his current pace, the Russian center could reach the 90-point mark for the fifth time in his NHL career. Malkin's return to greatness this season has been bolstered by the emergence of linemate Bryan Rust, who has already set career highs in goals (22) and points (45).

Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Platinum-level production
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Malkin scored a goal and added an assist in a 4-2 loss to the Lightning on Thursday.

Malkin has points in three straight (two goals, four assists). He rarely goes for more than a single game without a point and just keeps racking them up. Malkin's 17 goals and 39 assists (56 points) in 40 games is platinum production. Make sure he's always active.

Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Three-point effort against Flyers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Malkin scored an even-strength goal and added two power-play assists in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Flyers.

All three points came during a stretch of just over seven minutes in the second period. Malkin remains in peak form, wrapping up the month of January with five goals and 15 points in 12 games.

Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Snags assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Malkin registered an assist on Bryan Rust's game-winning goal against Boston on Sunday.

Malkin made a spectacular feed from behind the net to a wide open Rust to complete Pittsburgh's comeback victory. Even with the return of Sidney Crosby, the Russian center continues to produce at a blistering pace with six points in his last four games, including four with the man advantage.

Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Two PP helpers against Wings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Malkin picked up two power-play assists in Friday's 2-1 overtime win over the Red Wings.

He got the primary helper on both goals, including Sidney Crosby's game-winner. Malkin has produced multi-point efforts in four of his last five games, and since missing two contests in mid-December with an illness he's been the one making opposition goalies feel sick, racking up seven goals and 22 points in the last 15 games.

Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Registers three points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Malkin posted two power-play goals and an assist in a 7-3 victory over the Wild on Tuesday.

The 33-year-old has been very good this season, but he hasn't supplied much on the power play, so it was great to see him record two markers with the man advantage. His best play, though, was the assist -- a no-look pass behind his back to Bryan Rust to set up Pittsburgh's third goal. Malkin has 15 goals and 47 points with a plus-14 rating in 33 games this season.

Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Pair of helpers on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Malkin had two assists, both on the man advantage, and added two shots with two PIM in Sunday's 4-3 shootout win over the Coyotes. He was also minus-3.

Malkin didn't do fantasy owners any favors with his minus-3, but his two assists gave him at least one point in all but three of his 19 games since Thanksgiving. In fact, Malkin hasn't gone back-to-back games without a point all season. He has 44 points in 32 games now and, with injured teammates Sidney Crosby and Justin Schultz nearing their returns, his arrow is pointing straight up.

Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: One of each versus Avs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Malkin scored a goal and added an assist, three shots on goal and two PIM in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Avalanche.

Both of Malkin's points came in the third period, as he assisted Bryan Rust early before scoring a late go-ahead goal. While Malkin's tally didn't stand for the win, Jared McCann struck in overtime. The Russian center is up to 13 goals and 42 points through 31 appearances. He's added 108 shots, a plus-16 rating and 32 PIM.

Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Opens scoring Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Malkin netted a goal in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Golden Knights.

Malkin struck just 2:53 into the game, the first of three straight tallies for the Penguins. The Russian reached 40 points in just 30 outings this season -- he's got 12 goals and 28 assists to go with 105 shots on goal. Malkin will have to make room for Sidney Crosby (groin) in the near future, but it's likely both will produce strong numbers in the second half of the campaign.

Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Second straight three-point game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Malkin scored twice on five shots, dished an assist, went plus-2 and added four PIM in Monday's 5-2 win over the Senators.

Malkin scored 27 seconds into the game, and added the eventual game-winning tally at 6:02 of the second period. The Russian center has five goals and 11 assists in his last nine appearances. That's led to a remarkable 38 points (11 markers, 27 helpers) in just 26 contests this season. The 33-year-old can simply do no wrong right now.

Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Eight game, 13-point streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Malkin snagged three assists Saturday in a 6-4 win over Nashville.

Two came on the power play. Malkin has 35 points in 25 games and 13 points on his current eight-game scoring streak (three goals, 10 assists). Take full advantage of Geno's excellence right now -- he's already missed time due to injury and carries extra risk. But he's gold when he's out there, especially when Sidney Crosby is out.
