Numerous reports flowing in via Twitter that Malkin will miss tonight's game in Florida due to a serious sunburn.
from Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,
Penguins winger Brenden Morrow hasn't scored yet for his new team, hasn't done anything especially flashy and hasn't received as much attention as some other new acquisitions.
Morrow isn't concerned, nor is anyone else in the organization. General manager Ray Shero brought Morrow to Pittsburgh because of what he will contribute in the playoffs.
“If we could add grit and leadership to our top nine, we wanted that element,” Shero told the Tribune-Review about the trade to acquire Morrow in exchange for former Penguins prospect Joe Morrow.
“That led us to the Morrow deal. His game is not so much about stats and goals, even though I believe he will chip in. He could be that battle-tested guy who comes up big for us in many ways.”
First a little note about the lack of posting last night. I was the victim of a surprise birthday party and was told, no work all play.
So instead of doing what I was supposed to do last night, I sit here at 5:00am to catch-up.
There was no penalty on the play and no update on Neal post-game.
Tempers were getting a little high last night too, watch below as Matt Cooke does some back and forth chirping with the Rangers.

Can the Penguins have all hands on deck? The wildly successful franchise this season can’t seem to get all of its stars healthy at once. “Star” is the operative word here. The Penguins have many. They just reeled in superstar Jarome Iginla over the trading deadline, but lost Sidney Crosby, who was having one of the best seasons of his career, to a broken jaw.
As always, affording a Friday night game at Madison Square Garden is never easy. According to TiqIQ, New York Rangers tickets for this Friday night’s tilt with the Penguins will run fans an average of $312. Normally, the Rangers’ home average is $268, which makes this matchup 16 percent more expensive. Bargains are available, however. Tickets can can still be found on the low-end for $151.
Ron MacLean of HNIC chatted with Jarome Iginla today via satellite after his first game with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
