- Penguins head coach Mike Johnston has no plans to move Evgeni Malkin back to center for when the Penguins return to action Thursday night vs Dallas. “As he gets his legs going, there is an option at that time to move him to center,” Johnston said of Malkin. “But if their line is playing like they have been, I really like the line. Dupuis has had lots of jump. I like the mixture of the speed on one side, playmaking on the other. Sutter controls it through the middle. I don’t mind that line right now. We’ll see how it goes through the course of the next two games.” At even strength, the Dupuis – Sutter – Malkin line have scored two even strength goals and have a 58.3 CF% through two games.
