Bylsma visits Malkin in Moscow during vacation
Penguins center Evgeni Malkin is home in his native Russia for the summer visiting family and friends and working out in preparation for the 2010-11 season.

Last week Malkin had a visitor check in to talk about the upcoming season – head coach Dan Bylsma.

Bylsma was already in Europe on a family vacation when he decided to take a couple days to travel to Russia to meet up with Malkin.

"I went on a family vacation to Europe and had the opportunity to visit Moscow and see Geno," Bylsma said. "We had a lot of fun during the two days I got to spend with him."

The highlight of the trip occurred when Malkin took Bylsma on his yearly visit with the "Penguins Support Crew" – a Russian Penguins fan club which has existed since the 1990s.

Quote of the Day

Obviously he's been my favorite goalie since I grew up. He's kind of close to my hometown so I've been watching him my whole life. It's a pretty special moment for me to score two goals on Lundqvist in such an important game as this.
