Museum Worthy: Malkin Dazzles with Spin-O-Rama Goal



Evgeni Malkin brought the faithful to their feet at the Consol Energy Center on Saturday night when he produced this gorgeous spin-o-rama goal after pick-pocketing Oilers' defenseman Oscar Klefbom. Nice touch with the peanut butter backhand, which whizzes by Anders Nilsson before denting the top shelf.

Malkin would score again three minutes later to tie the game on the power play, but the Penguins ended up falling to Edmonton, 3-2 in OT.

"In practice, a couple times I've tried [the spin-o-rama]," Malkin said, "and today, why not?"

The victory was Edmonton's first in Pittsburgh since 2006, and just their second on the road vs. the Pens since 1993.
