Twisting and Turning

It’s getting a little tiring, no? Evgeni Malkin’s insistence that he outdo everyone, all the time, including himself. Listen Geno, we know you’re more than likely the best thing on skates these days. You rubbing that in everyone’s face all the time probably isn’t going to make that any more apparent. You’re preaching to the choir at this point.

You may be wondering why I’m so adamant about this today. For those of you who didn’t catch the Pittsburgh-Tampa Bay tilt earlier today, the Pens took the Lightning down to the tune of 8-1. To think Tampa knocked Pittsburgh out of the playoffs a little less than a year ago. At any rate, Malkin decided he was going to make it all about him by scoring a hat trick and adding an assist. One of his goals is about as beautiful as you’re going to see as he weaves through the entire bloody Lightning roster and makes Dwayne Roloson look rather silly to cap it all off.

Take a look.

What’s this guy’s deal? We know he’s awesome. Other teams know he’s awesome. Why keep rubbing it in everyone’s faces?

Now he’s just showing off.

    Well, yes, but both Crosby and Malkin were injured for that playoff series…. and it still took Tampa Bay 7 games to beat the Pens.

    As for Malkin rubbing it in everyone’s faces – well, simply leading the league in points didn’t get him a Hart Trophy in 08/09, so I guess he figures he’s just got to do a little bit extra this time ;)

    • Fair enough. For what it’s worth that line was more a “what the hell, Tampa” comment than a “hey Pittsburgh is good” comment.
