Stamkos’ 59th Goal and Malkin’s 49th Goal – Videos

Tonight, both Stamkos and Malkin edged within one goal of achieving personal milestones. Stamkos netted his 59th goal of the season against the Leafs and will have three periods against the Jets on Saturday to join the 60-goal club. Malkin scored his 49th of the year against the Rangers tonight and he will have the opportunity at 50 on Saturday when the Pens host the Flyers, however, he will have to get more shots on goal than tonight’s total of two shots if he wants to increase his chances of scoring. In my opinion, he plays better when Crosby is not around. I think he has mentally brainwashed himself into thinking that Crosby is the best in the world (Malkin stated that previously) and this has taken away from his own confidence and performance. Malkin is the best in the world right now and he needs to believe it and bring it to the rink.

If Stamkos gets 60 goals and Malkin fails to reach 50, then, Stamkos is going to get more votes for the Hart Trophy than he otherwise would have. You know that these voters of the “Professional Hockey Writers Association” love goal-scorers and that is why Corey Perry won last year with 50 goals over Daniel Sedin who had 41 and who won the Art Ross for most points.
