While everyone is waiting on Sidney Crosby to reach his 1,000th career NHL point, Evengi Malkin went about making a little magic of his own Tuesday.
The Pittsburgh Penguins took a 3-0 lead over the Vancouver Canucks after Malkin ever-so gracefully assisted Kessel in the third period.

This was the centre’s first game after missing seven with a lower body injury.
If anyone does a comeback well, it’s Malkin.
Murray on Malkin: “He’s one of the best in the world. We’ve come to expect that from him. He was really good for us all night.”
We missed u Malkin

Malkin helped the Penguins defeat the Canucks 4-0.
