Pens Tweak Power Play
Evgeni Malkin moved to the right point, although during practice he floated down to the half wall as well. James Neal, who worked the point for the first six games of the season, is back to his old position down low. Defenseman Kris Letang moves to the left point with Sidney Crosby on the half wall and Chris Kunitz at the net.
“I’m playing the point right now. I’ve played the point before,” Malkin said. “I’m a good playmaker. I can pass to ‘Sid’ or ‘Tanger’ for a one-timer.
I hope it works.
Just want to note, too, for all those folks commenting about how badly Malkin is playing ... he played just fine for Maurice and Bill during the lockout. Sure, he did some boneheaded things now and then, but he was playing really well for MMg and the national team. Maurice had him on the PK, logging 20+ minutes a night, he was playing a really good 2-way game and is still on top of the points board in a traditionally low-scoring league ...
