Sometimes Evgeni Malkin isn’t even fair.
The Pittsburgh Penguins forward opened the scoring in Wednesday night’s Game 4 against the New York Rangers with the filthiest of moves. Malkin, who recently has been skating on the same line with Sidney Crosby, took advantage of a poor clearing attempt by the Rangers to beat Henrik Lundqvist with a no-look, spinning backhander in the first period.
The goal was Malkin’s fifth of the Stanley Cup playoffs and his second in his last two games.
