DETROIT (AP) - Pittsburgh Penguins star Evgeni Malkin has left the game against the Detroit Red Wings after hurting his left leg.
Malkin got tangled up with Detroit's Luke Glendening early in the third period and his left skate took the brunt of collision with the boards behind Pittsburgh's net. The Russian forward slowly got up and kept his left skate in the air as he was helped off the ice.
Malkin was called for holding on the play, but he couldn't serve the penalty because he was being evaluated.
He had a goal and two assists in the game, giving him 601 points in his career. He ranks among NHL leaders this season with 41 points.
