What the heck is with Malkin?

He's playing like he's been paid to lose. In the first three periods he blatantly gave the puck away three times and then he touched the puck for an intentional offside when the linesman screamed that it was offside. Heck, I heard it as well as thousands of others.

Even Don Cherry said Malkin is playing in a fog.

Someone has to slap this guy upside the head to wake him up. Somebody has to tell this guy he is playing for the Cup and he has teammates who are hungry for it like Roberts, Malone, Gonchar, Staal and Crosby.

Wake up buddy.
