Malkin, Penguins take down Senators in Game 1
Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - Evgeni Malkin continued his stellar postseason play with a goal and an assist, as the top-seeded Pittsburgh Penguins handled the Ottawa Senators, 4-1, in Game 1 of this Eastern Conference semifinal from CONSOL Energy Center.
Malkin registered at least one point in all six games of Pittsburgh's first- round victory over the New York Islanders and added two more in Tuesday's triumph to push his point total to 13 (3G, 10A).
Tomas Vokoun posted his third straight victory since replacing Marc-Andre Fleury prior to Game 5 against the Isles. The veteran netminder made 35 saves Tuesday and has turned away 101-of-105 shots since taking over between the pipes.
Chris Kunitz also notched a goal and an assist, with Paul Martin and Pascal Dupuis potting the other goals for the Penguins, who finished 2-for-4 on the power play and added a short-handed goal in the victory.
Colin Greening scored the lone Ottawa goal, while Craig Anderson was tagged for all four goals on 30 shots for the Senators, who upended the second-seeded Montreal Canadiens in five games to reach the second round.
