It took a while, but finally there's an answer as to who scored the winning goal for the Pittsburgh Penguins in their 5-4 overtime win against the New York Rangers on Thursday.
The goal originally was credited to Jordan Staal, but after the game Staal told members of the Penguins' communications staff that he did not touch the puck and should not be credited with the goal. The club forwarded Staal's comments to the League. Upon further review, the goal now has been officially credited to Malkin.
The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
