Malkin 1, Magnitogorsk 0 (SO)

How does Pittsburgh's Evgeni Malkin celebrate a judge's decision to toss out Metallurg Magnitogorsk's requests that would have sidelined the talented rookie?

It's simple. He scores the game's first goal, adds an assists, and then provides the deciding goal in an extended shootout in the Penguins' 5-4 win over the Montreal Canadiens.

The Magnitogorsk team, which was seeking money after losing its hometown boy to the bright goal lights of the NHL, claimed that Malkin violated his contract when he fled the club last August.
