Malkin back tonight

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette , Evgeni Malkin will return to the Penguins lineup tonight. Not good news for the Bruins who have struggled to score goals all season long. Malkin is expected to start the game playing left wing on a line with Sidney Crosby and Ruslan Fedotenko.  Having both play on the same line may actually work in favor of Claude Julien, who can match Zdeno Chara up against them on most shifts.  While I do agree defensive pairings matched up against other team’s top lines is an important part of the game, I hate seeing forward line matching especially when playing a tough opponent on the road.

    With Malkin back – the Bruins might as well save their energy for their next game and not show up. It’ll be a cake walk for the Pens, 6-2 at least!!!
