Evgeni Malkin Speaks; Having Fun and ‘When You Play, You Forget Everything’

Published

on

NEW YORK — Evgeni Malkin earned a few laughs from the media and big smiles from Pittsburgh Penguins teammates Tuesday night. After more than 100 minutes of hockey, Malkin deflected John Marino’s rising wrister past New York Rangers goalie Igor Shesterkin.

After much worry from the external, the internal took care of Game 1, and the Penguins claimed a 1-0 series lead.

Malkin addressed the Penguins’ battle against the Rangers in which they rallied from 2-0 early in the second period and blitzed Shesterkin with 83 shots on goal.

For the first time, Malkin also answered a question about life after Russia invaded Ukraine and managed to slip in a joke about losing money on his recent suspension.

“The world is crazy right now. I’ve had a tough time. I had a suspension for games–it’s like, not easy for me. A lot of money that I lost,” Malkin quipped. “Now I have fun, and we have fun. When you play, you forget everything.”
