The Morning After
-400 Club: Evgeni Malkin scored an empty net goal last night to put the Penguins up 3-1 late in the third period. The goal was the 400th of his career and puts him 4th all time in goals in Penguins history.
-Johnny Blaze: Johnny Gaudreau scored the Flames lone goal and now has goals in four of his last five games. In his previous 31 games he only has five goals total, so things are looking up.
-Sweeps: The Penguins took both games with the Calgary Flames this season, sweeping Calgary for the first time since 2015.
