Miss two contests, drop a line mate, face an opponent that hasn't let up a goal in two straight games. Evgeni Malkin didn't miss a beat Monday night despite those obstacles. The NHL's assist leader recorded his eighth goal of the season early in the second period to lead the Penguins over the Columbus Blue Jackets for the fourth straight time.
A highlight reel goal in his first game back, Malkin received a pass from Jussi Jokinen and glided past two Blue Jacket defenders before potting the game's first goal behind Curtis McElhinney 4:16
Ben Roethlisberger threw for 275 yards and 3 TDs, but the Steelers defense couldn't come up with a stop when they needed one in the second half and the Dolphins ended Pittsburgh's playoff hopes by beating the Steelers 34-28 at Heinz Field on Sunday, despite some last-play heroics by the home team.

After starting the season 0-4, the Steelers’ playoff chances looked dead on arrival. Pittsburgh is steadily rebuilding its confidence with a 5-3 record since mid-October. The team faces some challenging opponents this month.

Pitt enters the 2013-14 season after a recent string of unprecedented player exodus. Since 2010, Pitt has lost six players to transfers—including the surprising departure of senior J.J. Moore—and one player (center Steve Adams) to early entry in the NBA draft.
