GIF of the Game: Evgeni Malkin sweet pass to Jussi Jokinen

Bruce Bennett

Our new feature starts off with an "ooh" with Evgeni Malkin's sick pass to Jussi Jokinen for a goal in last night's preseason game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

We're trying out some new things for a new season, as you've surely noticed the awesome material that TKN and Natasha have been adding for us. Another such feature is going to be bringing Mike Darnay into the fold. If you haven't crossed paths with him, he's very active on twitter and an accomplished photographer. He likes to mix it up and is good at making GIF's, images and all sorts of stuff. I'm not exactly sure how this is going to end up with what he'll be contributing, but we're definitely looking to keep adding more and better content and awesome stuff. So enjoy!

Today's "GIF of the game" (note: may not be every game, but we're working on it) comes from last night's 5-3 loss to the Blue Jackets. The game itself wasn't terribly memorable, aside from the natural hat trick by Jussi Jokinen. Jokinen was fed beautifully by Evgeni Malkin here, then made no mistakes beating last year's Vezina winner Sergei Bobrovsky for a goal.
