PITTSBURGH (AP) Evgeni Malkin is in the midst of a scoring race Michael Hutchinson Jersey Womens , while the Pittsburgh Penguins compete for the top spot in the Metropolitan Division. Teammate Jamie Oleksiak helped the cause with a goal against his former team.Malkin and Oleksiak both scored to help the Penguins beat the Dallas Stars 3-1 on Sunday night.”I don’t really think I need to be a guy that scores a bunch of goals or gets a bunch of points,” said Oleksiak, who scored his fifth of the season. ”We have a lot of that here.”Malkin is a prime example with his 39th goal of the season and an assist. He has 87 points to pull one behind league-leader Nikita Kucherov of Tampa Bay. Malkin’s 39 goals are also one from the league’s co-leaders – Washington’s Alex Ovechkin and Winnipeg’s Patrik Laine.”I just don’t want to think about that,” Malkin said. ”I want to sleep at night. It’s a good challenge for me.”Malkin, now with 919 points, moved past Pavel Datsyuk for fifth on the NHL’s all-time points list among Russian-born players. Malkin, with 38 points in his last 20 games, also equaled a season-high six-game points streak.”It has been confidence, I think,” Malkin said. ”I feel it again, and if you score in one or two games, you feel so much better.”Patric Hornqvist scored a power-play goal, his 20th, to help the Penguins win for the fourth in five games.Pittsburgh, which rebounded from a 5-2 loss at Toronto one night earlier, jumped past Washington for first place in a tight Metropolitan Division. The Penguins, who lost six of their previous seven against Dallas, have won 14 of their last 15 overall at home.Casey DeSmith made 17 saves for the Penguins with starter Matt Murray out for his seventh game with a concussion.”You can tell by the way we played tonight that we are trying to get into that playoff mode http://www.officialdevils.com/authentic-adidas-miles-wood-jersey ,” DeSmith said.Alexander Radulov scored a power-play goal, his 25th of the season, for the Stars, who started a critical late-season stretch of six road games in 10 days with a loss against the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions. Dallas, the first wild card in the Western Conference, is 14-15-3 on the road and has just two wins in its last six games.Kari Lehtonen, making his third straight start, stopped 27 shots.”It’s always a little disappointing to not get points at this time of year,” Lehtonen said. ”It doesn’t matter if it’s the first game of the road trip or what not. We played careless.”Hornqvist opened the scoring with a first-period power-play goal. The final pick of the 2005 NHL Draft, he has scored at least 20 goals in eight of 10 NHL seasons, including the last five. The Penguins had two goals in their last 18 power-play chances prior to Hornqvist’s goal.Oleksiak gave Pittsburgh a 2-0 lead with 3.7 seconds left in the first. The Stars drafted Oleksiak in the first round of the 2011 NHL Draft and Pittsburgh acquired the 6-foot-7, 25-year-old defenseman from Dallas on Dec. 19 for a 2019 conditional fourth-round draft pick.”I just kind of closed my eyes and shot it as hard as I could,” Oleksiak said. ”I was calling for it a little bit, he put it in my sweet spot, I saw the opportunity and took it.”Radulov scored a second-period power-play goal on a five-on-three for the Stars’ only goal.Hornqvist thought he had his second power-play goal of the game, and a 3-1 lead for Pittsburgh later in the period. But the Stars challenged the play and the goal was overturned because Malkin went offside earlier in the sequence.”It was a surprise to me, but it’s the rules,” Malkin said. ”Sometimes that happens.”NOTES: Stars G Ben Bishop missed his third game with a knee injury. He is expected to skate with equipment Monday after skating without pads Sunday morning. … Pittsburgh scratched F Dominik Simon (lower-body) Nico Hischier Jersey , F Bryan Rust (concussion), F Zach Aston-Reese (upper body) and D Matt Hunwick. … Marc Methot (knee) and Mattias Janmark (illness) both played for Dallas after missing Friday’s game against Anaheim. … Stars F Antoine Roussel played in his 400th career NHL game. He is the first in NHL history from France to play in 400 games.UP NEXTStars: Continue a six-game road trip Tuesday at MontrealPenguins: Open a three-game road trip at the New York Rangers on Wednesday ST. LOUIS — The St. Louis Blues seem to finally be gaining some positive momentum this season, but they may be without one of their biggest offensive pieces as they host the San Jose Sharks on Friday night.Center Brayden Schenn (upper-body injury) seems likely to miss his second straight game. Schenn, who left Saturday’s contest against the Minnesota Wild, did some light work in practice Thursday but was nowhere near full go.“A little bit (of work), but obviously he wasn’t involved in everything, so again, question mark for tomorrow,” Blues coach Mike Yeo told NHL.com.Article continues below ...Forward Pat Maroon will be a healthy scratch for the first time this season.Maroon, a St. Louis native, signed a one-year $1.75 million free agent contract with the Blues in the offseason. He has seven assists in the first 13 games, but is struggling to score.“I think it’s been very frustrating for him, which is understandable,” Yeo told NHL.com. “First off, you know how important it is for him to put that jersey on, what that means to him and how he wants to contribute. Secondly, he’s betting on himself this year. We know how important that is. It’s tough. We’ve seen a lot of good things despite him not scoring, his forechecking Dan Hamhuis Jersey Womens , his puck presence in the offensive zone, his physicality, his power-play (contributions), all these things.“I think some things can start to get in your head and obviously confidence starts to play a part in that. I think maybe a little reset here can help him out.”Forward Nikita Soshkinov will replace Maroon in the lineup and will make his Blues debut. He will play on a line with Tyler Bozak and Alexander Steen.Soshkinov and Bozak were teammates in Toronto.“He’s been working hard and this will be a good chance for him,” Yeo told NHL.com. “He’s playing with a guy in Bozie that he’s familiar with, two guys that are responsible. I don’t expect perfection without the puck for Sosh; that’s not what I’m looking for. What I’m looking for is his speed to be a difference maker. He’s got two smart players who can read off of him. For me, the way I should see it is his speed should impact the game all over the ice. Hopefully we can see that tomorrow.”The Blues won once in three meetings against the Sharks last season.San Jose will be playing its second game in as many days after losing 4-3 at Dallas on Thursday night. The Sharks had their two-game winning streak snapped.Defenseman Brent Burns recorded two assists, including career No. 400, and forward Evander Kane tied the game 3-3 in the third period for the Sharks before center Devin Shore got the game-winner, his second goal of the night, at 14:13 of the third for the Stars.Sharks defenseman Joe Thornton played in his 1,500 career game. He is the 19th player in league history to reach that milestone.“He does things that people don’t even know or see to be able to play,” Sharks general manager Doug Wilson told the San Jose Mercury News about Thornton. “If he ever shared his actual routine with everybody, people would not believe it. But you don’t put that much work in if you don’t truly, truly don’t love it. This is a really special person.”
