Five games played since Penguins alternate captain, Evgeni Malkin was put on the shelf with an upper body injury. And as of Sunday night, you can all the Pens “butter” because they are on a roll. A 6-0 kind of roll and that’s a beautiful sight! That’s something the Black and Gold have always been expected to do, but have struggled with all season long. Now, the Malkin-less Pens have found their groove. They say there’s “no better time than the present” when starting a positive task, but in the NHL, I say “there’s no better time than right before playoffs!” This is exactly what the Penguins are doing.
