WASHINGTON (AP) Injured star Evgeni Malkin was out of the Pittsburgh Penguins‘ lineup for Game 2 of their second-round series against the Washington Capitals.Coach Mike Sullivan confirmed about two hours before Sunday’s puck drop that Malkin was out for the third consecutive game. Malkin appeared to injure his left leg in Game 5 of Pittsburgh’s first-round series against Philadelphia and has not played since.”We’re a better team when Geno’s in our lineup Carter Hutton Jersey Womens ,” Sullivan said. ”Having said that, I don’t think our team looks for any sort of excuses. I think we try to rally around one another. It’s a next-man-up attitude, we have capable people in our lineup, it provides opportunities for others to play a more significant role and they want to take advantage of those opportunities.”Malkin’s continued absence affords a bigger role for centers Derick Brassard and Riley Sheahan, and, combined with an upper-body injury to Carl Hagelin, keeps Carter Rowney and Dominik Simon in the lineup. On Saturday, it looked like Malkin could be ready to return; he participated in a full practice, skating on the fourth line and taking turns on the top power-play unit.But Sullivan and Malkin both said the 31-year-old Russian would play only if he was ready from the first shift and was not limited to a minor role. Sullivan said Malkin did not experience a setback and could return for Game 3 in Pittsburgh on Tuesday.”It doesn’t matter who’s in the game. You just did need to win the game http://www.kingsproshop.com/authentic-tyler-toffoli-jersey ,” Washington coach Barry Trotz said. ”Obviously he’s a top player. There’s no question about it. It’s undeniable. But at the same time, it doesn’t really matter.”Malkin had three goals and two assists in five first-round games. Without him, the Penguins eliminate the Flyers in Game 6 a week ago and erased a two-goal deficit Thursday to take a 1-0 series lead on the Capitals.The potent Penguins power play misses an important piece without Malkin, though it only got two opportunities for a total of 2:32 in Game 1.”It was limited time, so it’s hard to evaluate whether or not we were able to have success, with or without him,” Sullivan said. ”We have capable guys. The people we have are very capable of being successful. We just have to find ways to have success if given the opportunity.”—AP Sports Writer Howard Fendrich contributed to this report.— WINNIPEG, Manitoba – The Winnipeg Jets have yet to show the form that propelled them to the second-best record in the NHL last season, but they’re finding ways to win until everybody is all on the same flight path.The Jets defeated the Arizona Coyotes 5-3 on Saturday night Devan Dubnyk Jersey , pushing their record to 5-2-1, but it was hardly a Picasso or a Rembrandt. In artistic terms, this game was more like dogs playing poker.The Jets were outshot 45-32, including 16-6 in the first period. The latter statistic, however, flattered the home team, who went 14 minutes between their second and third shots of the frame. (During four of those minutes, the Jets were short-handed.)Article continues below ...Defenseman Jacob Trouba, who has been handling the puck like it’s a hand grenade all month long Womens Eric Staal Jersey , had arguably his best game of the season, picking up a career-high three assists. He told The Winnipeg Sun that he was happy to see defensemen Tyler Myers and Josh Morrissey as well as winger Mathieu Perreault notch their first goals of the season.“When everyone gets a goal, it feels pretty good when they score,” he said. “It’s good to see. You want to see everyone jump in and get in there. It’s great to see a lot of names on the scoresheet.”Morrissey and left winger Kyle Connor are tied for the team lead in points with seven ahead of the early-season favorites Mark Scheifele, Blake Wheeler and Patrik Laine.If nothing else, the game against the Coyotes proved that back-up goalie Laurent Brossoit is the real deal and can provide some much-needed rest for starter Connor Hellebuyck during the season. He stopped 42 shots for his second victory of the season.“We had a little lull in the first (period) and he was there to back us up, especially on those penalty kills,” Trouba said of Brossoit.“Both games he’s played he’s been extremely good and when (Hellebuyck’s) been in, he’s been good. You definitely can’t look at the goaltenders and expect much more.”The Blues come to town having lost three of their last four but their win on Saturday night http://www.minnesotawildteamshops.com/authentic-jared-spurgeon-jersey , boosting their record to 2-3-2, did most of Canada a favor. By defeating the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-1, handing the Leafs their second consecutive defeat, they forced most national sports television and radio shows to talk about something other than the Leafs being the odds-on favorite to win the Stanley Cup next spring and break every offensive record in the process.Blues coach Mike Yeo was pleased with the efforts by his troops, who kept the Leafs – the highest-scoring team in the league – off the scoreboard until the third period. They also outshot the Leafs 25-23.“That looked a lot more like the St. Louis Blues. The guys came out [and] gave us a great response,” he said in a post-game scrum.The Leafs visit the Jets on Wednesday.
