Malkin has been an absolute beast this season having 28 points (11G, 17A) in 21 games, which is good for 3rd in the NHL scoring race. He is riding a six game point streak which has seen him collect 11 points over that span. Malkin has always played well against the Leafs in his career, averaging 1.8 points per game. So the three point night came as no surprise. Barring injury, Malkin will again compete for the NHL scoring lead, putting up an 80+ point season with ease.

Malkin potted a pair of goals Monday -- including his season's first game-winner in OT -- against the Bruins.

Malkin, who saw time at even strength with Chris Kunitz, now has four goals and eight points in five games. Interestingly, Sidney Crosby and Kris Letang assisted on both of his goals. It took Malkin just 22 contests to score his 10th goal: In 2013-14 the centerman needed 33 games to reach double digits in goals. The scary thing is that Malkin has yet to play his best hockey.
