From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Ron Cook:
“I know I’m not scoring,” Malkin said, meeting the question head on. “People are a little bit maybe mad ... “
Not yet, they aren’t.
Malkin gets more of a pass in this town than, say, Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury, who will spend today and Tuesday reading and hearing how he was thoroughly outplayed by Montreal goaltender Jaroslav Halak in the Canadiens’ 3-1 win in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series at Mellon Arena even though his teammates had a couple of bad breakdowns in front of him.
But it will get ugly for Malkin fairly quickly if his scoring drought continues.
