Malkin Plans to Throw it Around

From CBC,

To call Pittsburgh’s top regular-season scorer a non-factor so far in the Stanley Cup final may be generous. Malkin’s penalty minutes (four) easily exceed his number of shots on goal (one), and his minus-3 rating reflects the defensive contribution he made as the Penguins were manhandled by a combined 7-0 in the opening two games in Detroit.

Malkin often found himself bothered by Niklas Kronwall and the other bone rattlers on the Red Wings’ defence corps, something the Russian acknowledged in his halting English before a 3-0 loss in Game 2.

“Detroit have a good defenceman. Kronwall,” Malkin said. “I need to be more physical play. Have to pressure defenceman. Hit. Yeah, hit.”
