The Penguins announced that Evgeni Malkin has been activated off the IR! Party time, children!
There has been some Penguin negativity on Twitter and I'm not having it so here are some positives to focus on.
The Penguins have placed Nick Bjugstad and Evgeni Malkin on the IR with lower-body injuries.
The Penguins have placed the two new guys on a line with Evgeni Malkin, team's A and leader. And it is going swimmingly.
I will speak it into existence, I swear.
Time is running out quickly for the Pittsburgh Penguins this season. The team has 2 games left to pack in enough points to keep themselves in a playoff spot.
If I'm honest, a large chunk of what I write are what I call "Player Pieces" and I love writing them more than anything else.
Evgeni Malkin returned from injury in last night's Pittsburgh Penguins vs Philadelphia Flyers game but his return was short lived.
Imagine running away from your country, with special agents hot on your tail to track you down, for the slim chance of making something for yourself. That's what it was like for Russian hockey players on their journey to the NHL after defecting from their hometowns.
