The endless saga with Sidney Crosby's concussion has robbed the NHL of its best player, but it hasn't robbed the Pens of the best player in the NHL.
Malkin has been in full gallop-mode for weeks now, but at times the finishing ability was inconsistent. Now he's burying the puck, taking advantage of goalies having embarrassingly bad nights (Miller, Ryan), and setting up his highly capable teammates on the doorstep. It's a beautiful thing to watch. He'll be leading the league in scoring by January 1st.
No need for a full recap today, but know this. Yesterday we felt sorry for ourselves. Today, we realize how lucky we are. Go Pens.
