Look … up in the sky. It’s a bird. It’s a plane. No, it’s “Super Geno!”
Okay, maybe likening Penguins center Evgeni Malkin to Superman is a bit over the top. After all, he doesn’t wear a cape and he can’t exactly fly, although you might have a hard time convincing NHL goalies. However, there are a growing number of teams that wish they could [...]
