It was only a preseason game, but Evgeni Malkin’s performance Wednesday night may indicate a huge season awaits the Penguins’ star center.
In his first game since tearing his right ACL in February, Malkin paved the way to a 3-2 win over Detroit in the exhibition opener at Consol Energy Center. Showing bursts of speed that have been evident during training camp, Malkin scored a beautiful goal and set up another in 20 minutes, 51 seconds of ice time.
“He was at a dominant level,” coach Dan Bylsma said.
Malkin forced four turnovers during an inspired first period.
“Even though it was just an exhibition game,” he said, “it was good.”
