NHL.com @NHL

It was a milestone for Evgeni Malkin.

The Pittsburgh Penguins forward scored his 12th regular-season overtime goal in a 6-5 win against the Boston Bruins on Sunday, giving him sole possession of the Penguins record.

Malkin passed owner Mario Lemieux, who scored 11 regular-season overtime goals during his Hall of Fame career.

He scored off a great give-and-go with Phil Kessel to beat Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask.

Celebrate good times

It was a good day for Nicklas Backstrom as the forward's goal lifted the Washington Capitals to a 4-3 overtime win against the St. Louis Blues. But you know who had a better day? Some kid in the stands.

 

Rantanen's halfway there
