14 January 2018

Evgeni Malkin scored two goals and assisted on two more to lead the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 4-1 home victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday afternoon. Defensively, the Detroit Red Wings are allowing 3.1 goals per game and are killing 81.3 percent of their opponents power plays. Gene J.

Justin Abdelkader scored for the Red Wings, who have lost two straight following a four-game winning streak. Abdelkader did not return after the second period and Helm's appeared to injury his right leg in the third period.

With the Blackhawks being as inconsistent as they have been all season, every game and every point has been so precious.

Detroit went 1-for-7 on the power play.

The Detroit Red Wings look for a spark of consistency after splitting their last 12 games.

Word of the announcement quickly spread on social media, and some immigration lawyers posted alerts on their Facebook pages. Mia Love (R-UT), who's of Haitian descent, have called out the president for the comments and have requested an apology.

The Red Wings were playing their first game since losing to Tampa Bay 5-2 on Sunday. The Penguins led in shots, 5-1, after five minutes.

"Our power play has to be better, and our shooting mentality has to be better". That makes this Sunday matinee matchup that much more important, as if the players weren't already getting jacked up for this big matchup.

"If we were to get one or two early there, it would have been a lot different, but we didn't", Henrik Zetterberg said. The Chicago Blackhawks have allowed two or less goals in five of their last six games.

Phil Kessel added a goal and two assists for Pittsburgh, which had dropped its previous three games against Detroit. Kessel sent a pass from the boards toward the middle, and Malkin converted from between the circles.
