2 points and a piece of history...

So I should have written about this a couple of days ago, but I have about as much free time as Drew Bledsoe has mobility. So deal with it. The Pens beat the Kings 4-3 in overtime Wednesday night to improve to 4-0 on the road in this young season. Evgeni Malkin scored the OT goal, but it was his goal in the 1st period that made all the noise. When he scored his first goal of the game Malkin became the first NHL player in 89 years (or since the NHL's inaugural season for those counting) to score a goal in each of his first 6 games. Malkin is just amazing. It's scary to think how good the Pens get once he and Sid can talk. Good times ahead!
