March 16th, 2008 | Posted by admin in Pittsburgh Penguins

Marian Hossa returned to the Penguins from his knee injury that has kept Hossa out of all but one game since his trade to the Penguins.  Hossa, who is set to be the largest unrestricted free agent on the market this summer scored a goal and an assist in tonight’s blowout win over the Flyers.  The Penguins 7-1 victory strengthened the Penguin’s position heading into the playoffs and lessened the chances of the Flyers who have a number of teams chasing the final playoff spot.

The star of the game for the Penguins was Evgeni Malkin who scored 4 points on 2 goals and 2 assists.  Malkin has 8 points in his last 2 games and Malkin now has 41 goals on the season and 97 points.  He trails Alexander Ovechkin for the NHL points lead by 2 points, Ovechkin has 99 points on the season.
