Evgeni Malkin ejected after swinging stick at Flyer

The Penguins forward was clearly irritated by Raffl and responded by recklessly swinging his stick in Raffl's direction as he skated away.

Malkin arrived in Pittsburgh for training camp feeling confident of what lay ahead for him and the Penguins. As Malkin and Raffl were battling for the puck near the glass, Raffl landed a punch to the back of Malkin's head.

Malkin's penalty forced him out of the game and put the Flyers on a five-minute power play with the score at 3-0, though an empty-net goal by Kris Letang and assisted by Sidney Crosby sealed Pittsburgh's victory and snapped the team's four-game skid. I was a little surprised it was a match because the player didn't get hurt on it or there wasn't real significant contact.

"Everyone was like give me five minutes. I know it's dirty, but I missed, my stick (did) not touch his helmet or shoulder" Malkin said.

"I just think on Geno's part it was reactionary". It wasn't unsafe, he wasn't bleeding or anything.

"I don't know why I'm not playing smart with five minutes left", said Malkin, who was playing his first game with Pittsburgh since January 30 due to injury. "Play smart next time". He was getting punched in the back of the head. "But that's now how the referee saw it". Malkin's production is still there - 56 points in 51 games - but for a player who is 14th all-time in points-per-game and has always held himself to the highest of standards, it goes beyond point totals.

The Penguins beat the Flyers 4-1 with Malkin picking up an assist in the game.
