The Penguins won last night. Evgeni Malkin was really good. My "he's so sick" count stopped around ten as he continuously improvised stick tricks and attacking methods during an official, sanctioned NHL contest.
Maybe it's time for an AND1 Streetballer alias for Malkin. Serial Skiller? Goals Galore?
He did this in the first period...
... and this in the shootout.
Keep watching and the supporting cast does the rest. Marc-Andre Fleury with a pair of nifty saves and James Neal with the winner.
Officially, Malkin wasn't even one of the three stars. Earning first was Neal, Fleury, strong throughout, took second and Cam Ward got the third arbitrarily honor.
In the real world, I think we all know who's atop the food chain on the ice of the Consol Energy Center. And again, he showed why.
