Pittsburgh Penguins: Keys to Taking on Winnipeg Jets Without Evgeni Malkin

When the Penguins last took the ice on Saturday, the Buffalo Sabres defeated them 3-2. An attempted third period comeback came up a bit short as the power play lost a faceoff in the Sabres zone with 21 seconds left.

Now, the team heads back out on the road, making their first trip to the city of Winnipeg since February of 1996. The only goal scored in that contest was by then fan-favorite Jaromir Jagr. Tom Barrasso was the winning goalie.

One thing that will make the trip a bit more difficult is leaving a few players behind. While Sidney Crosby and Dustin Jeffrey continue to make progress, Evgeni Malkin and Brooks Orpik are still taking it easy to make sure that short term problems do not become long-term catastrophes.

The slides cover the things to watch for in the game against the Jets. Even without Malkin, there are items of concern for the Pens.
