Penguins center Evgeni Malkin was named the NHL's No. 1 star for February, when he put up a league-high 26 points (nine goals, 17 assists) in 14 games.

Dallas goalie Marty Turco was selected the No. 2 star, while Buffalo left winger Thomas Vanek was chosen No. 3.

Malkin recorded points in 10 consecutive games between Feb. 2-21, and has a league-high 88 points going into tonight's games.

Malkin truly stepped in for Crosby and kept the team on their feet, also now leading the league in points and really plays full heart every game, every shift!!!

I believe the Sens will lose to the Ducks but I'm not sure about the Habs losing in SJ. I'll be cheering Thornton and Cheechoo on tonight.

Congrats Geno - much deserved!

Bad news for Evgeni Malkin: Ovechkin has 4 goals and 1 assist tonight.

Washington beat Boston 10 (yes, 10) to 2.

Congrats Geno! Now get back to work and get 6 points tomorrow night to leapfrog AO again!

With the way the Bruins have played tonight, it's hard to believe this is the same team that spanked us so hard on Thursday night. But I've felt they were overachieving and aren't as good as their record, and this game shows it a bit.

I wouldn't be surprised if he does do well enough tomorrow to do just that against Tampa. They're in absolute turmoil.

Well you're 2 for 2, because they both lost tonight, and the Habs loss gives the Penguins the top seed in the East! I thought the Pens had already had it, but the Habs had a game in hand until tonight, which is why they held the top spot despite having one fewer win than the Pens, something I didn't even consider. Oh well, we're on top now!

I agree. The more I thought about it, I wouldn't be exactly distraught if Fleury get's the nob tonight. The kid was out for some time with his injury, I think you have to at least get him some playing time before the playoffs start and with only fifteen games remaining you might as well start working him in to some degree.

Fwiw, both the Trib and the PG have Fleury as the probable tonight.

Do you hear that sound?

That's the sound of the other teams in the eastern conference collectively saying "OH S%IT!!!"...

Crosby to return to Penguins lineup tonight in Tampa
Tuesday, March 04, 2008
By Shelly Anderson, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

TAMPA, Fla. -- Penguins captain Sidney Crosby said this morning he expects to return to the lineup and play tonight against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Crosby has missed 21 games because of a right high ankle sprain.

"It's been a while, so I'm looking forward to it," Crosby said after participating in the Penguins' morning skate at the St. Pete Times Forum.

Crosby was leading the NHL in scoring with 63 points when he was injured Jan. 18 as his foot bent awkwardly as he slid into the boards during a game with tonight's opponent, Tampa Bay.

The Penguins have gone 11-6-4 without Crosby and remain in strong contention for the Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference titles.

Crosby said his ankle began to feel noticeably better last week when he skated in Pittsburgh while the team was on the road. He approached coach Michel Therrien yesterday about possibly playing tonight after skating in Pittsburgh and flying here with the team, then sealed his return when he felt good during today's morning skate.

"I feel pretty strong right now," he said. "That's what I based my decision on -- how much strength I had and whether I was able to do things out there that I normally could do. I think I've made sure of that."

Crosby, 20, won the NHL scoring title and MVP award last season.
