Behold the locked-out EVGENI MALKIN in full flight, scoring a goal eerily similar to Mario's statue in Metallurg Magnitogorsk's 3-0 win vs. Amur Khabarovsk yesterday.
Geno has two goals and seven assists in nine games with Metallurg. He trails teammate (and ex-Pen) CAL O'REILLY by two points. Here or there, a star's a star.
My goal for Geno: Play in Russia until Jan. 1. Possess the KHL scoring lead. The NHL lockout ends. Geno returns and wins the NHL scoring title. MVP IN BOTH LEAGUES SIMULTANEOUSLY. #livethefreelife
