Evgeni Malkin Wins Art Ross Trophy

Congratulations go to Evgeni Malkin for winning the 2009 Art Ross Trophy.  The Art Ross Trophy is awarded to the NHL scoring leader.  The Penguins scored two 3rd period shorthanded goals to beat Monytreal in their regular season finale.  Malkin scored his 35th sealing his first ever scoring championship.

Malkin joins Mario Lemieux, Jaromir Jagr, and Sidney Crosby as past Ross Trophy winner.  Geno credits his teammates for winning the Ross Trophy this season and says it was a team effort.

Pittsburgh will face Philadelphia in the first round of the playoffs.  The Penguins are 18-3-4 under Coach Dan Bylsma and seem like the hottest team going into the playoffs.

Congratulations Geno!
