The Pittsburgh Penguins and Evgeni Malkin have agreed to term on a contract extension with superstar Evgeni Malkin.
It’s very rare you see Patrice Bergeron get into a dust up, but when Evgeni Malkin wanted to dance following the second period of Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Saturday night, the Bruins’ assistant captain was up to the challenge.
The Boston Bruins practiced for one final time on Friday before finally heading off for Pittsburgh, and head coach Claude Julien showed off some new defensive pairings ahead of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Penguins.
Pittsburgh’s Evgeni Malkin has won the Ted Lindsay Award as the NHL’s top player in voting by his peers. The NHL scoring champion received the award at the league’s postseason awards ceremony.
