Video: Malkin's "Magic Mits" Lead to Gorgeous Goal

Hockey fans, we don't know what to tell you other than BOW DOWN. We had to watch this goal a few times before truly grasping the ungraspable nature of Evgeni Malkin's brilliant play. At full speed it's difficult to tell just how nasty Malkin's toe drag to between-the-legs self pass move is. Oh, but rest assure, it is filthy (just ask the two defenseman that he left dying on the vine as he split them to break free).

It was the second of a pair for Malkin on Tuesday night, and it helped the Pens erase the bitter taste of a 4-0 shellacking in New Jersey on Saturday night. Malking also had two assists, pushing his totals to 6-10-16 for the season.

"We talked yesterday and I think we changed the momentum tonight and showed how we can play," Malkin said. "We're still not perfect, but it's a little bit better, and I hope that now we're starting to understand what's going on with the team and support each other, and start winning." The Penguins improve to 11-7-0 with the win, good for fourth in the Metropolitan Division.
