Malkin makes magic in return from injury
Penguins centre picks up goal and assist against Vancouver
While everyone is waiting on Sidney Crosby to reach his 1,000th career NHL point, Evengi Malkin went about making a little magic of his own Tuesday.
The Pittsburgh Penguins took a 3-0 lead over the Vancouver Canucks after Malkin ever-so gracefully assisted Kessel in the third period.

Malkin also scored the first goal on the night.

This was the centre's first game after missing seven with a lower body injury.
If anyone does a comeback well, it's Malkin.
Murray on Malkin: “He’s one of the best in the world. We’ve come to expect that from him. He was really good for us all night.”—@penguins
