Penguins Injury Report: Evgeni Malkin, Carl Hagelin Out For Capitals Game 1

Penguins To Be Without Malkin, Hagelin For Game 1 Vs. Capitals

Matt Murray stopped 32 of the 34 shots he faced to put the back-to-back defending Stanley Cup champions ahead in yet another series with Game 2 on Sunday in Washington.

With Sidney Crosby and Alexander Ovechkin going head-to-head for the third consecutive playoff year, Rob Pizzo breaks down the rivalry that fans love watching. “He made some big saves for us, especially when they were pressing down the stretch there.

"I thought he was locked in all night long", coach Mike Sullivan said.

"Just to see him out there and see him getting closer is nice", winger Bryan Rust said.

Murray couldnt predict a furious comeback, but he wasnt shocked, either.

He appeared to be testing his injured left leg throughout the skate but moved fluidly and without any obvious signs of discomfort.

While many of his teammates probably wanted as much time off as possible between series, no one would have blamed Guentzel if he wanted to get right back on the ice after recording four goals and an assist in the finale against the Flyers. It was one of those thats just a weird bounce.”.

Pittsburgh has met Washington in the Stanley Cup playoffs 10 times, with the Penguins winning nine of those series, four of which came in seven games. He has scored five of them. They were in a great position to take the first game of the series.

Hagelin (upper body) has been ruled out for Thursday's Game 1 clash with the Capitals.

Down 2-0 early in the third period and playing without Evgeni Malkin and Carl Hagelin, Pittsburgh turned it around with all three of its top-line forwards chipping in a goal.

"We have the depth on our roster", Kuhnhackl said. "It's hard to win in the playoffs, and I think depth is an important part of it".
