Malkin Top Russian

When it comes to a continuous scoring streak, anyways...

That Penguins center Evgeni Malkin, who got at least one point in 15 consecutive games before being shut out Saturday, would own the longest scoring streak ever by a Russian player in the NHL isn't a major surprise.

The identity of the guy who set that standard before Malkin is.
It was not one of the many spectacular talents from that country -- not Pavel Bure or Alex Kovalev or Igor Larionov or Alex Ovechkin -- but the utterly forgettable Dmitri Kvartalnov, who played for Boston in 1992-93 and 1993-94.

Atta boy, Geno, let's start another one!
