VIDEO: Evgeni Malkin Does His Best Mario Lemieux Impression

The PIttsburgh Penguins blew out the Tampa Bay Lightning 8-1 on Saturday afternoon, thanks in part to a hat trick by Evgeni Malkin. Not only did Malkin pick up a hat trick, but he had this nice unassisted goal to push the Penguins lead to 6-1 early in the third period. Malkin just cut right through the entire Lightning team, doing his best Mario Lemieux impression.

This was Malkin's second of eventual three goals in the game, his final goal coming on a Penguins power play in the middle of the final period. Announcer Bob Errey pointed at, the goal was reminiscent of Mario Lemieux's in Game 2 of the 1992 Stanley Cup Final against the Minnesota North Stars (now the Dallas Stars).
