Kukla's Korner Hockey

Evgeni Malkin sat in his dressing room stall, dutifully answering the questions he was being asked -- even though he had no answers.
Malkin was just one of the array of offensive stars on the Pittsburgh Penguins who did not register a single point in a four-game sweep in the Eastern Conference Final at the hands of the Boston Bruins, one completed Friday night with a 1-0 loss at TD Garden.
Malkin, Sidney Crosby, James Neal, Jarome Iginla and Kris Letang combined for zero goals, zero assists and a collective minus-23 rating in the four games.
"We scored two goals in four games. It's not enough," Malkin said, his voice barely more audible than a whisper, in a dressing room wrought with sorrow. "It's my mistake. I scored zero goals."
