Penguins’ Kris Letang to miss game vs. Rangers with lower-body injury

DeAngelo, the offensively gifted but hot-headed defenseman, cleared waivers on Monday after being designated following a postgame confrontation with goaltender Alexandar Georgiev after Saturday's overtime loss to the Penguins. Artemi Panarin added another three points, scoring an empty-net goal with 0.3 seconds left on the clock, and Chris Kreider added a power-play goal, his fourth of the season. This is one of the ways we're dealing with it.

The home games scheduled tonight and Thursday against New Jersey are postponed indefinitely due to an outbreak of covid-19 in the Devils locker room.

Julian Gauthier, who hadn't played since January 19 against the Devils, was called for holding minutes after the Rangers took the 2-1 lead to force them to compete shorthanded for the sixth time in the game. The Penguins return to action this Saturday, Feb. 6 at the New York Islanders.

Tony DeAngelo is drawing significant attention on the trade market, one day after the New York Rangers announced the defenseman has played his last game with the club.

Rooney and Lemieux need to continue their stellar play, holding the fort down against what will surely be a hungry Washington Capitals team on Wednesday night.

Vanecek allowed four goals on 32 shots.

Zucker says solving the power play is essential. Malkin also picked up an assist and moved past Jaromir Jagr for third most points in team history with 1,080. Juuse Saros finished with 21 saves.

It's the third time in less than two weeks that the Canadiens have routed the Canucks. Braden Holtby stopped 34 of 40 shots for the Canucks.
