Malkin injured in Penguins' 4-1 win over Red Wings

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) -- Evgeni Malkin had a goal and two assists before hurting his left leg early in the third period of the Pittsburgh Penguins' 4-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night.

NHL scoring leader Sidney Crosby also scored two goals to help the Penguins win.

Malkin got tangled up with Detroit's Luke Glendening, lost his balance 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. He was called for holding on the play, but couldn't serve the penalty because he was being evaluated.

Olli Maatta had Pittsburgh's other goal and Jeff Zatkoff made 28 saves.

Niklas Kronwall gave Detroit a 1-0 lead at 6:09 of the first.
