As a penguin fan, you may have been distracted by the stars that hit the PPG Paints Arena Monday night during a 4-1 win over the Boston Bruins.

Fun fact: Evgeni Malkin has scored points in each of his last eight home games (3G-9A). He also has an eight point streak. # NHL101

That gave Malkin his 1,100. Career point. According to NHL public relations, only four other active players (Crosby, Alexander Ovechkin, Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau) have that many. And it only took Geno 950 games to hit that plateau. Of that group, only Crosby came in faster (850 games).

Jake Guentzel added a blank Nice (his fourth game in a row with a goal), and All-Star goalkeeper Tristan Jarry was brilliant at 42 out of 43 Stop shooting.
