Malkin also has a point, because his fourth goal of these playoffs-the one that led to the win that knotted the Penguins" second-round series against Washington at two games apiece on Thursday night, in front of a boisterous crowd dressed in yellow "Let's go Pens!' t-shirts-was absolutely huge, but it wasn't your usual Malkin finish.
Washington forward Alex Ovechkin, who is trying to get to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time in his career, failed to register a shot on goal for just the third time in 107 career playoff games.
"I think it was just good defense", Penguins coach Mike Sullivan told reporters. He takes the rebound and gives it to me right away.
The seasons ended last week for the Penguins minor league team in Wilkes-Barre and following the season, their captain Tom Kostopoulos retired. Oshie lead the way with eight.
Kerr says Curry will start Game 3 vs. Pelicans
PRESSURE IS ON: The Pelicans, who don't want to go back to the West Coast down 3-1 and on the brink of elimination. The Warriors rank first in assists per game (29.3) while the Pelicans rank 21st in assists allowed per game (23.8).
But Malkin, in his second game back from a lower-body injury, scored the game-winner late in the second, a power-play tally.
Jake Guentzel would be on the doorstep to clean it up and the seal was broken on the night's scoring. "He's stepped into a very big role for us and done a great job and we miss him, but we're gonna have to do a job here without him". "There wasn't much space out there on both sides".
The Capitals' postseason history with the Penguins - all-time, they've lost nine out of 10 series against their Metropolitan Division rival - is so well-documented that it barely needs mentioning.
With Backstrom unable to play the final 13 minutes, Lars Eller double-shifted and Vrana looked like a flawless fit with Ovechkin and Kuznetsov. "To score, you've got to try and do something different sometimes to get one".

Ingles nailed a pair of treys while Utah was scoring eight straight to go ahead 108-96 with 4 1/2 minutes to play. The Rockets led the league by a wide margin with 15.3 made three-pointers per game during the regular season.
Guentzel added an empty-net, power-play goal with 57.4 seconds remaining in regulation. But then it was Oshie who helped deliver the lead back to the Penguins. He did not return and did not play in overtime where the Lightning went on to win, 4-3, thanks to a Dan Girardi goal.
"Nick doesn't really surprise me about where he can put the puck these days", Oshie said. Pittsburgh need players other than Crosby and Guentzel to get in on the score sheet. That was kind of the turning point in the game, when they got that goal there when I was in the box. "Obviously, a little bit of luck to make sure you get it out and not hit somewhere else". The Washington Capitals challenged for goaltender interference, but the goal was upheld.
"You can complain about this or complain about that or wonder about this or whatever", defenseman Matt Niskanen said. "I think the playoffs is just a fresh start".
The crowd's excitement rose and fell with each replay, but certain angles that we don't have on TV definitively showed that the puck was over the red line for a good goal.
