From ice level at PPG Paints Arena, PHN Editor-in-Chief Dan Kingerski broke down the Pittsburgh Penguins 2-1 win over the Dallas Stars and why it mattered more than most.
Evgeni Malkin was the Penguins’ hero. He and linemates Bryan Rust and Jason Zucker raced the length of the ice for Malkin’s game-winner with 34 seconds remaining.
Malkin was the Penguins’ best player throughout the game, though goalie Tristan Jarry was again stellar. Jarry stopped 26 of 27 shots and has allowed two or fewer goals in three of his last four starts.
There were a couple of players who scored negative grades in the PHN+ Penguins report card, and Kingerski explained further.
