Malkin scores, leads Penguins to 4-1 pre-season win over Stanley Cup champs

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Evgeni Malkin scored for Pittsburgh and the Penguins beat the Chicago Blackhawks 4-1 Tuesday night.

Dustin Jeffrey, Nick Johnson and Mark Letestu also had goals for Pittsburgh, and Paul Martin had two assists. Kyle Beach scored for Chicago, which fell to 1-3 in the pre-season. The Penguins are 4-0.

The game matched the past two Stanley Cup champions—but the lineups did not. Malkin played, but fellow Penguins Sidney Crosby, Marc-Andre Fleury and Brooks Orpik were among the scratches. Chicago chose not to dress, among others, Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith, Marian Hossa and Marty Turco.

Both of the Penguins' third-period goals went in off of Blackhawks defenceman Brent Seabrook.
