Monday night, it was goalie Marc-Andre Fleury who turned in a superstar performance for the Penguins. Last night, it was Evgeni Malkin, who notched a hat trick and powered the Pens to a 7-4 Game 2 win over my Canes. His third and final goal midway through the third period that padded Pittsburgh's lead to 2 left even me staring in awe. Malkin is simply amazing, and if Carolina's going to stand a chance in Saturday's now-pivotal Game 3, they've got to find a way to put a body on him and slow him down. Here's hoping the RBC Center crowd in Raleigh will give the Canes a lift over the next two to even this series.
I'm a follower of Christ, an heir of the Reformation, and a Baptist - in that order. My wife Heather and I have been married since 2005 and are the proud parents of a little girl. I work as an Aviation Technical Publications editor. From 2005 to 2009 I served as Minister to Youth at Hazelwood Baptist Church in Louisville, Kentucky, and I'm now actively pursuing church planting.
Soli Deo Gloria!
