Malkin Likes His "Home Cookin'!"

Pittsburgh Penguin's Evgeni Malkin tops the's list of top points producers that made the most of games in front of Pens fans at the Mellon Arena.

1. Evgeni Malkin, Pittsburgh -- Malkin topped the League with 64 points, including 18 multiple-point games at Mellon Arena. He had a pair of four-point contests against interstate rival Philadelphia. On Feb. 10, he had a goal and three assists in a 4-3 triumph and on March 16, the native of Magnitogorsk had two goals and two assists in a 7-1 dusting of the Flyers.
