Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin was forced out Pittsburgh's 3-1 win Friday night after being driven into the back boards on a hit by Panthers defender Erik Gudbranson at 15:09 of the third period, but was able to skate off on his own.
The Pittsburgh Penguins had a scare involving sniper Evgeni Malkin on Friday night against the Florida Panthers. 

The forward was forced out of the Penguins' 3-1 win after being driven into the back boards on a hit by Panthers defender Erik Gudbranson at 15:09 of the third period. 

Malkin came streaking along the wing, and after contact by Gudbranson, crashed with full speed into the boards and landed back first in an awkward position. He was left lying on the ice, then rose to his knees looking dazed after being attended to by Pittsburgh's trainer, but skated off on his own power. 

According to the Penguins' official Twitter account, he'll undergo further evaluation Friday evening and the team will know more Saturday.
