Penguins Need Malkin More Than Ever

malkin There’s a rather ominous Bible verse in the book of Hosea that warns, “… they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind.” While I may be guilty of taking this passage of scripture out of context, it sure seems like an apt description for what has been an exhilarating yet tumultuous couple of weeks for Penguins hockey.

Flyers Outclass Penguins 8-4
