Penguins erase 2-goal deficit, beat Capitals 3-2

Penguins To Be Without Malkin, Hagelin For Game 1 Vs. Capitals

With the Pittsburgh Penguins entering Game 1 of their second-round series without Evgeni Malkin and Carl Hagelin, it looked like a great opportunity for the Washington Capitals to jump on them early. "They're unbelievable players. I feel like we got a great team and we can do it now without them and later with them", Simon said.

Showing no panic from allowing a goal to Evgeny Kuznetsov 17 seconds into the game and another to Alex Ovechkin 28 seconds into the third period, the back-to-back defending Stanley Cup champions took another series lead in typical Penguins fashion.

The Capitals downplayed any possible edge for Game 1, pointing out that the Penguins have many other skilled forwards, including Sidney Crosby, Jake Guentzel and Derick Brassard. "They have some guys who have contributed right through their lineup".

Malkin traveled with the team to Washington but Hagelin did not make the trip. But one of the things that has made the Penguins so hard to match up against during their run of consecutive Stanley Cup titles and nine consecutive series wins has been the one-two center combination of Crosby and Malkin.

The Blazers need a coach just as determine if not more determine to win, names like Mark Jackson and David Fizdale comes to mind. At 25, Davis has spent multiple years as the "Best player in the National Basketball Association to never win a playoff series".

Sullivan ruled Malkin out for Game 1 a day in advance but otherwise has referred to the star center's status as day-to-day.

During the regular season Malkin led the Penguins with 98 points (42 goals, 56 assists) in 78 games while earning a plus-minus rating of plus-16.

"It definitely sucks that we don't have those two guys". This after after leading the league in postseason goal-scoring a season ago.

Malkin suffered a lower body injury in Game 5 of the Penguins' first round series against the Philadelphia Flyers. It should be interesting to see how the Capitals match up against the Crosby line, knowing there's no Malkin to worry about. Dominik Simon will be replacing Hagelin and will flank Sheahan on the left-wing. We did a good job of that.”. Hornqvist missed the previous two games. But it would leave them chasing again, with Pittsburgh getting stronger if Malkin returns for Game 2. The series will move to Pittsburgh next Tuesday and Thursday.
