Penguins’ Malkin is not a happy camper

Props to Fanhouse’s Eric McErlain, who provided a translated version of an interview between Sovetsky’s Mikhail Bykov and the Pens’ Evgeni Malkin.

Malkin is not happy with the Pens’ play of late, and speaking strictly for myself, I’m glad to see it.  Malkin, who was given the alternate captain’s “A” this year, was expected to provide an increased level of leadership by HCMT.

Here’s hoping his English is good enough to chew some of his teammates’ asses.

Therrien juggles Penguins’ lines yet again

One day after an absolutely putrid effort in San Jose, one in which his Pittsburgh Penguins only got 11 shots on goal, Head Coach Michel Therrien (known amongst Penguins’ blogs as HCMT, get used to it) has done yet again what he does best:  He completely shuffled his top three lines.

In HCMT’s defense (which I don’t do very often, once again, get used to it), it’s not like he had much of a choice.

Welcome

Welcome to The Confluence !!  I am absolutely thrilled to be working alongside Paul, Alanah and the rest of the folks here as the Penguins blogger at KK.

In addition to providing game previews, recaps, and various Penguins news, there will be many, many occasions where I jump on my proverbial soapbox to spew about whatever is ticking me off that particular day, whether that’s the on-average 127 line changes that Head Coach Michel Therrien (hereafter known as HCMT) makes every game, the constant misassignments on the points of the powerplay.

If you have any questions or comments to me, feel free to email me at theconfluence@cox.net, or leave a comment at any of the articles.  Thanks !!
