It certainly will not go down as one of the more entertaining hockey games of the year but a win is a win. The Penguins downed the Blue Jackets by a score of 2-1. Both Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby scored goals and when that happens it leads to victory more times than not.
Here are the game highlights:

Who's Hot: Evgeni Malkin
Once again the Pittsburgh Penguins' pair of former Hart and Art Ross Trophy winners are staging an intramural competition to see which is the best player in the NHL.

Big thanks to my bud Lowell for sending this over. He caught it at CONSOL Energy Center during Islanders-Penguins two weeks ago when Sidney Crosby notched his 250th career goal. And since the Pens play the Isles in Hempstead tonight, we might as well relive this horror.

Contact Pittsburgh International Airport and have them clear the runways. Better warn NHL scoring leader Sidney Crosby to step aside, too. There’s a new jumbo jet cruising down the tarmac and it’s about to take flight. It’s called “Air Malkin.”
Although my intro may be a bit clunky, I can assure you there’s nothing hokey about Evgeni Malkin’s dramatic resurgence. Following...
