Malkin has 3 Assists in Pens' Win Over Blackhawks
PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Evgeni Malkin had three assists to move into a tie for the NHL scoring lead and the Pittsburgh Penguins snapped the Chicago Blackhawks' five-game winning streak with a 3-2 victory on Tuesday night.

Malkin assisted on goals by Chris Kunitz, James Neal and Tyler Kennedy, giving him points in all six games since Penguins captain Sidney Crosby left the lineup again because of concussion symptoms.

Malkin has six goals and nine assists in that stretch in which the Penguins lost three of the first four before Malkin had a hat trick in an 8-3 victory over Buffalo on Saturday.

Jonathan Toews and Viktor Stalberg had third-period goals for Chicago (21-9-4), which entered with the most points in the NHL. The Blackhawks had won five straight on the road.
