Your move, Alex.
These two have been a treat to watch, but our guess is you haven't seen anything yet. Both Ovechkin and Malkin--while friendly towards one another-- are very fiercely competitive and want nothing more than to out-produce their fellow countryman. Don't think for a second that Ovechkin won't know heading into tomorrow night that not only is he 2nd in the scoring race; he's 2nd to Malkin.
27 points in the last 14 games. Unbelivable. Everyone knew Malkin was among the top players in the league, but few knew he is towards the top of that heap. Perhaps now he'll finally get recognized for what he deserves by the media at-large. Geno's not just a sidekick to Crosby or stuck in the shadow of the more flamboyant Russian, he belongs right in their class.
