@orbsonb: cool thanks!

Also, I just read the PG article on the game, which included this tidbit...

"Penguins center Evgeni Malkin admitted recently that he had a little difficulty adjusting from the larger international ice surface he played on in Russia during the lockout and the smaller NHL rinks. Malkin played for his hometown Metallurg Magnitigorsk."

How did Geno look?  I'm a huge fan, but it seems like he's been struggling with turnovers so far this season. I'm not sure if it's smaller ice or him trying to do too much once they've gotten behind, but it definitely seems like it's been happening...  

And did they mainly have Boychuk on the Malkin/Neal line, or did they rotate others in?

Caveat:  I've only caught two of the games on TV.  The other's I've generally listened to on the Pens Radio Network, which I almost like better, but it's hard to intuit some of those turnovers and who looks strong and who doesn't.

I have alerted The Zambonis (https://www.facebook.com/#!/TheZambonis) and they're already thinking about covering it.

"Is he hurt? Who knows? He battled the knee issue earlier this year and there’s some speculation out there that says he’s still not 100%."

And...wait for it....Malkin to sit out indefinitely with an undisclosed injury:

Looks like Geno needs some time off to recoup. Hopefully this will launch him into Beast Mode (tm) for the end of the season and onwards. What was it, like the 2nd to last Mtl game when he got tripped up in the 3rd, and it looked like he wasn't going to come back on the ice because of the pain?
