Malkin Finally Back up to Speed

Standard Spin: After missing massive portions of the past 3 seasons, Evgeni Malkin finally looks back up to speed.  He had 2 points on Friday in the loss against OTT, to give him 31 in 27 games this year.  Kunitz (2 points) and Sullivan (3 points) also had good nights for the Pens, who would probably be the odds-on-favourite in Vegas for a Cup if Crosby was healthy.
