No supplemental discipline for Evgeni Malkin on T.J. Oshie head shot

Mike Sullivan Penguins left fuming after Evgeni Malkin’s ejection in hard-fought loss

T.J. Oshie was all over the place on Wednesday, and the Capitals forward finished the night in fine fashion despite almost dying on two occasions.

Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby stopped 41 of the 42 shots he faced for his first win since October 22. He was powerless to stop Oshie's goal after a pass from John Carlson gave him a wide-open net.

The Penguins have lost five in a row, including four to Metropolitan Division foes. The Capitals forward left the game and went through the NHL's concussion protocol, having previously visited the trainers' room during the game following a high stick from the Penguins' Olli Maatta.

An offensive-zone tripping penalty by Washington's Jakub Vrana midway through the first opened the door for the Penguins' power play.

Greg Wyshynski of ESPN and Sportsnet's Chris Johnston both had the same report Thursday morning that Malkin would not have a hearing for the match penalty, which occurred 3:27 into the third period of the Caps 2-1 victory.

Oshie would return to the game and score the winning goal.

The Sandiganbayan said the former first lady can have provisional liberty if she posts a cash bond while appealing the conviction. Chairperson Emeritus Etta Rosales said, "This legal victory is a two-decade struggle by the courageous Filipino people.

Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby traded goals, and Oshie got the victor with 1:14 left following a risky hit from Malkin.

Malkin nailed Oshie with a chicken wing to the head in the third period. I'd say about 20 minutes later everything settles down a little bit. "He caught me there, and it is what it is". "I don't care what happens to him".

NOTES: F Zach Aston-Reese made his season debut and LW Garrett Wilson made his Penguins debut after being called up Tuesday.

Oshie, rightfully so, doesn't seem all that concerned with any possible supplementary discipline Malkin could be facing, as he noted to reporters after the game. He's the first player in franchise history to reach that milestone.

Penguins: Look to stop their skid Saturday at home against the Arizona Coyotes.
