Head coach Dan Bylsma met with the media after practice and touched based on several topics including Evgeni Malkin who Bylsma said played an outstanding game against the Montreal Canadiens.
“I think his last game was an outstanding game, ” Bylsma said. “Right after the game it was disappointing to see he wasn’t on the score sheet because he played so well and was apart of a lot of the success we had both 5-on-5 and on the power play,… didn’t get on the scoresheet. But, he was around the net, going to the net, he was a net front presence on a lot of our power play opportunities. He was good 5-on-5, good defensively and was a big part of us playing well. I think he realizes all he has to do is play within our team game and play hard.”
