Malkin’s OT Game-Winning Goal Vs. Washington

The one player the Pittsburgh Penguins absolutely could not advance to the next round of the Stanley Cup playoffs without is Evgeni Malkin, the 2009 Art Ross trophy winner. “Geno” dished out a couple of assists in the first two games of the season, both of which the Penguins lost and got four of their five goals from Sidney Crosby. But Malkin woke up in game 3, playing just under 24 minutes and scoring his first goal of the series, a beauty from high in the offensive zone. Malkin’s best game yet came in Saturday’s game 5, which the Penguins won 4-3 in overtime off of Malkin’s gme-winner. It looks from the video like he’s trying to make a pass to Sidney Crosby, but the puck deflects off the stick of Capitals defenseman Tom Poti and past Simeon Varlamov for the goal. The Penguins are proving to be the better team now that they have both of their superstar centers playing at a very high level.
