Quincey had the puck, was trying to skate out to the left with it and was grabbed from behind with two arms by Malkin. Quincey basically lost control of his stick from that, then the puck. Malkin grabbed it, then faked past Gabriel Landeskog and Semyon Varlamov for what was the game-winning goal. Malkin should have been in the penalty box for holding. It could have been a different outcome fr...
