I’m not trying to turn this site into an Evgeni Malkin fansite, but you guys, BAM! at 1:43 and then slo-mo BAM! at 1:55 and then REVERSE ANGLE BAM! at 2:09.

Somebody needs to make one of those, “YOU FAIL!” pictures out of that hit.

That’s how you show Ovechkin who’s boss.

    Malkin looks like a locomotive when he puts his head down and starts moving up ice with the puck. I’m SO glad he saw Ovechkin at the last second…so so glad. I was really surprised with Ovechkin really trying to slam Malkin being they are friends and all…

    That happened right in front of my seats, and I can’t even tell you how much more impressive it was live. Nothin’ like the “oh, shiii….YES!”

    Obviously, Malkin’s been content to let the team feed off Sid’s fiery competitiveness, but just as obviously, he’s got what it takes to lead the charge.

    I will admint, the first few times I saw Malkin play, I wasn’t overly impressed. And I grew up around hockey. But lately, he’s more sure of himself, sure on his skates. And Monday night at the game, I was incredibly impressed… we were up above in section E, with the Caps net to my slight right in the 1st and 3rd period. At least twice, we watched Malkin control the puck with one hand amazingly and fend off opponents with the other arm going around the back of the net and back around to the front… that was the way he scored his first goal. His reach with the stick is aweseome. He manages to reach forward, while still controlling the puck and fend off everyone else….
