The Penguins’ 2015–16 season has been a mixed bag of struggle and success. The team entered Tuesday night’s action with a 10–7 record. But despite their up-and-down season, the firepower of the Pens can’t be ignored. If those scorers heat up they can be just as dangerous as any offense in the league.
One of those stars, Evgeni Malkin, dazzled the home crowd Tuesday in scoring his fourth point and second goal of the night.
Around the nine-minute mark in Pittsburgh’s game against the Wild, Malkin received a pass from Phil Kessel and dangled his way through the slot. After a move that pretty, all that was left was finishing the play.
Malkin didn’t disappoint, putting his squad up 4–1 at the time.
The Penguins went on to beat Minnesota 4–3. It was Malkin’s sixth goal of the season.
Pittsburgh improved to 11–7 with the win, while the Wild fell to 10–4–3.
