NHL playoff roundup …NEW YORK ó Evgeni Malkin scored two power-play goals and added an assist to lift Pittsburgh to a 5-3 victory over New York on Tuesday night that stretched the Penguins’ lead in the Eastern Conference semifinal to 3-0.
The Penguins are 7-0 in the postseason, still rolling after a four-game sweep of Ottawa in the first round.
