On Saturday Evgeni Malkin proved once again that he is currently the best player in the world. In the game against the Lightning he had a hat-trick and one assist, giving him 77 points on the year and a 4 point lead over Steven Stamkos in the scoring race. Stamkos was held pointless in the game and has not done well in any of the four games against the Penguins this year. Note that due to injury Malkin has played seven fewer games than Stamkos and that makes Malkin’s stats much more impressive. Without question, Malkin will win the Hart Trophy this year, and other teams had better get prepared because Malkin “is the man” when it comes to playoff hockey. I discuss this in my article entitled “Malkin the Best in the World – Penguins Could Win the Cup!” and you can find that in the Pittsburgh section.
Okay, let’s take a look at this fantastic goal by Malkin.
