Malkin scored

The Baltimore Orioles have designated former All-Star Chris Tillman for assignment [url=]Kyle Van Noy Jersey[/url] , offering the veteran right-hander a chance to remain in the organization and pitch at Triple-A.

Tillman, who started the 2016 AL Wild Card game for Baltimore, is 1-5 with a 10.46 ERA in seven starts and hasn’t pitched since May 10 because of a back injury. He has not indicated whether he will accept Baltimore’s offer or choose free agency.

The Orioles cut Tillman at the conclusion of his 30-day minor league rehab assignment, opening a 40-man roster spot that allowed Baltimore to select infielder Renato Nunez from Triple-A. Nunez was in the lineup at third base for Friday’s game at Toronto, Baltimore’s first since trading Manny Machado to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Tillman was an All-Star in 2013 and started on opening day for Baltimore the next three seasons. Over that four-year span, he was 56-30 with a 3.91 ERA in 128 starts. Tillman began 2017 on the disabled list because of a shoulder injury and struggled in his return, going 1-7 with a 7.84 ERA in 24 games (19 starts). He signed a one-year contract to return to the Orioles in February [url=]Adam Butler Jersey[/url] , and ended an 11-month drought between wins by pitching seven shutout innings against Detroit on April 27. He didn’t make it past the second inning in his next two starts.

The Pittsburgh Penguins and Detroit Red Wings both beat the Philadelphia Flyers in overtime in the past week. Other than that, these two teams share little in common.

The Penguins (43-27-6) are second in the Metropolitan Division and getting ready to go after their third straight Stanley Cup, something that hasn’t been achieved since the New York Islanders won four in a row from 1980-83.

The Red Wings (27-38-11), 4-2 losers to the Montreal Canadiens on Monday, are out of the playoffs for the second straight season, the first time that’s happened to the franchise since 1981-82 and 1982-83. The Wings are 1-12-1 in their last 14 games.

“We play hard, but it’s just the same thing every night [url=]Doug Flutie Jersey[/url] ,” Detroit goaltender Jimmy Howard told “It’s like Groundhog Day for us right now.”

The Wings have dropped 24 one-goal games, tied for the NHL lead. They’ve lost 12 straight games when they score less than three times.

“I think overall we are playing good but we don’t score enough goals,” Detroit right winger Martin Frk assessed. “We are right there and they just score on us. It’s usually like five, six minutes left in the game and now we have to come back. It’s a little bit tough.

“It would be different if we could score a couple of goals ahead and have a better feeling going into the third period, instead of going in all these tight games.”

On the flip side, the Wings are 1-3-1 in the last five games when they score three or more goals.

“Blame it on the bounces, but it’s out of my mind how many times we’ve lost because of little things that we don’t get on our side [url=]James Harrison Jersey[/url] ,” Wings defenseman Jonathan Ericsson said.

The Penguins are afflicted by no such maladies. They’ve gone 24-9-3 in 2018, after sitting at one game above .500 (19-18-3) on Jan. 1 following a 4-1 loss at Detroit on New Year’s Eve.

The Pens have scored five or more goals 16 times in 36 games. In 30 of the 36 games, the Pens have scored at least three times.

Not surprisingly, leading the way are captain Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. Crosby recently joined Joe Thornton and Henrik Sedin as the only active NHLers with 700 career assists. He reached the 25-goal mark for the 10th time in his NHL career, and the 80-point plateau for the ninth time. In Penguins history, only Mario Lemieux has tallied 80 points more often (11 times). Lemieux (12 times) and Jaromir Jagr (11 times) are the only Pens to score 25 goals more often.

Malkin scored his 42nd goal of the season, three off the NHL lead [url=]Will Redmond Jersey[/url] , in Sunday’s win over the Flyers. He now has at least one point in nine of 12 games, and multiple points six times in 12 games. Malkin leads all NHLers in both goals (28) and points (56) during 2018 and has picked up at least one point in 27 of 36 games and at least two points in 19 of 36 contests.

“These are some of the best players of their generation,” Penguins coach Mike Sullivan told “There are nights where I drive home after games and replay the game in my mind, and I marvel at some of the things that these guys do.”
