    Malkin boosts Russia

    By STEPHAN NASSTROM

    STOCKHOLM (AP) - Evgeny Malkin scored midway through the third period to give Russia a 2-1 win over Sweden in Game 1 of the European Hockey Tour final Friday.

    Sweden, which won its only Euro Hockey Tour title in 1998-99, needs to win the return leg in regulation on Sunday in Moscow to force an overtime period. Russia has never won the title. Alexander Ovechkin, the top NHL draft pick last year by the Washington Capitals, set up Malkin just in front of the goal at 10:49.
    It was the first goal for Russia by Malkin, an 18-year-old centre who was picked second in the 2004 NHL draft by the Pittsburgh Penguins.

    PS: From one at the game who posted on the Pen's board, Malkin was named the number one star of the game. He seems to have really come along since the 2003-4 draft.

    Malkin is just lucky to have a linemate like Fedor Fedorov......

    (Fedor is his linemate right?)

    There is no rational explanation (apart from being Sergei's brother) to why he is on the roster.

    It's the beard I tell ya!
     
  9. Awesome, one-handed pass by Alexander Oveckin to set-up the goal. He displayed great strength to beat the defenseman wide, off-balanced and made a one-handed pass in front of the net for an easy Evgeni Malkin goal.

    You'd probably get the same amount of points from a traffic cone like Kip Miller.

    He doesn't have small bones, he has thin bones! I mean I'm talking noodle thin, and every one knows it's all about the width, not so much the length.

    Plus I think I read somewhere that he pulled his groin and it stunk really bad. I think that was from an article roughly translated from russian to english, but it makes you think.....
    By the way, I was going to try eating some crab one time even though I don't really like seafood, but they smelled awful so I never even tasted it.

    Ovechkin and Malkin are both stellar prospects... they will be already be able to produce a lot at there first NHL season.. at least its my feeling.

    I share that feeling ... they played so well against Sweden this week, and not against some juniors, but against Sweden's World Championship team!!!

    :clap:

    Personally I think Ovechkin's transition will be much quicker. I think Malkin might 'ease' his way into being a star sort of the way Marleau or Lecavalier have.

    Oh no, I totally disagree. Watching him play this season made it clear that he was ready, and when I say he's ready, I mean that he "IS" ready. :snide: He's just as good as Ovechkin, maybe he's got less explosiveness, but his passing is fantastic, and his speed ... just WOW. I hope they will show all of it in Austria as soon as next Saturday! :D

    I think his need for more strength will hold him back, at least initially.
