Carl Hagelin netted a goal in the Penguins' 5-4 overtime win against the Rangers Tuesday night.

Hagelin also fired a team-high six shots on goal. It was Hagelin's first goal and second point in seven games this season. He had six goals and 22 points in 61 contests in 2017-18.

Matt Murray saved 28 of the 32 shots he faced as the Penguins topped the Rangers 5-4 in overtime on Tuesday night.

Murray wasn't at his best against the Rangers, allowing three consecutive goals in just over two-and-a-half minutes in the second period of Tuesday's contest. Nevertheless, he remains undefeated in regulation, with his record sitting at 4-0-1 on the season with a 3.41 goals-against average and a .895 save percentage.

Evgeni Malkin scored the game-winning goal just under a minute into overtime as the Pittsburgh Penguins rallied to beat the New York Rangers 5-4 on Tuesday night.

Malkin also added three assists, including setting up the tying goal by Sidney Crosby with less than a minute to go in regulation. The Russian now has eight points in seven games. It was Malkin's second game-winning goal of the season already. He is coming off a 72-point season in which he missed 20 games, so it looks as though he will be very productive fantasy-wise this year.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have assigned Chris Summers to the AHL.

The 29-year-old hasn't suited up in any NHL games this season. He won't have any fantasy value at any point this season.
Oct 17 - 7:08 PM

Josh Archibald will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Rangers.

He's been a healthy scratch in every game this season. The 25-year-old had three goals in 10 games with the Penguins last season. Chris Summers and Scott Wilson will also serve as scratches.
Oct 17 - 6:52 PM

Ian Cole (mouth) will play in Tuesday's game against the New York Rangers.

Head coach Mike Sullivan mentioned that Cole was healthy enough to play, but he was deemed a game-time decision earlier today. Cole will be paired with Justin Schultz tonight.
Oct 17 - 6:47 PM

The Pittsburgh Penguins have placed Matt Hunwick on injured reserve.

The Penguins haven't specified what the injury is as of right now. The 32-year-old has one goal in six games this season. Head coach Mike Sullivan will likely shed some more light on Hunwick's injury in the next few days.
Oct 17 - 3:07 PM

Ian Cole is healthy enough to play in Tuesday's game against the Rangers.

It's still not clear if he'll actually play in tonight's game. If he doesn't, it won't be because of the mouth injury he suffered earlier this season. He'll be a game-time decision.
Oct 17 - 12:40 PM

Matt Murray will be between the pipes for Tuesday's game against the New York Rangers.

Murray comes into tonight's game having won three straight decisions. He has a 3-0-1 record with a 3.29 goals-against-average and a .899 save percentage this season. He's a solid fantasy option tonight.
Oct 17 - 12:21 PM

Ian Cole (mouth) feels ready to return on Tuesday.

"That's obviously up to the coaches, but I feel good," Cole said. "Nothing is wrong with my body. I'm healthy. I'm feeling really good out here." Penguins coach Mike Sullivan has described Cole as a game-time decision, so we'll have to see what happens there. He'll be wearing a cage for now at the recommendation of his doctors.
Oct 17 - 10:27 AM

Ian Cole (mouth) will be a game-time decision Tuesday night.

Cole lost three teeth and hurt his jaw when he was struck in the mouth by a puck on Oct. 7 against Nashville. However, he said his conditioning is fine and he can play with a shield protecting his mouth if he gets the green light to dress versus the New York Rangers.
Oct 16 - 1:30 PM

The Pittsburgh Penguins have had eight slashing penalties in the last three games.

Coach Mike Sullivan is not happy at the amount of times the Penguins are visiting the sin bin. "We have to have more of a heightened awareness of how we're utilizing our stick to check," Sullivan said. "That's going to be a point of emphasis for our team when we come to practice on Monday, and it's something that we will discuss daily until we start to show more discipline in that area of the game. I think we're in the bottom third of the league as far as (times short-handed). That's a statistic that I think is within our control, and it's a discipline that we all have to start to establish."

Greg McKegg scored a shorthanded goal for Pittsburgh Saturday.

It was the center's first goal as a Penguin. McKegg played 46 games for Tampa Bay and Florida last season before signing on July 1 with the reigning Stanley Cup Champions. He has no fantasy value.
Oct 15 - 9:34 AM

Patric Hornqvist could be called up in front of the NHL disciplinary office for his hit on Colton Sceviour Saturday.

No penalty was called and Sceviour did not return although it did happen with only 2:05 left in the game. Hornqvist scored for the second time in two games but it would be a crimp in the plans of the Penguins if he was suspended for a couple of games. Stay tuned.
Oct 15 - 9:31 AM

Matt Murray made 43 saves in a 4-3 victory over the Florida Panthers on Saturday night.

Murray allowed three goals but he did enough to secure the victory for the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday. He has yet to lose a regulation game this season, but has a goals-against-average of 3.28 and a save percentage below .900.
