Malkin suited up and had a favorable performance without 87

You’ll recall that Cleveland golden child LeBron James willed the Cavs to erase a 3-1 series deficit against the mighty Golden State Warriors.

Look what you’ve done, Sad Sports Fan. You’ve robbed your own city of a precious World Series and poor, poor Cleveland of its first pro sports championship since 1964.

And two of the best stories in sports in 2016, if not ever, are gone. Poof.

In the first game of the playoff series versus the Islanders back in 2013, Malkin suited up and had a favorable performance without 87, proving he’s still productive with two assists in a 5-0 win. But this isn’t the only time Malkin has shown his prestige when Crosby’s out of the lineup. In the 117 career games Malkin has faced the challenge, he’s tallied 66 goals and 88 helpers — a respectful 1.32 points per game average. This is reassuring because when Crosby is present and leading the top line, Malkin drops his productivity just slightly to an average of 1.15 points per game. It’s clear that losing Crosby doesn’t hinder him; it’s his motivation.

This is arguably the most perfect player to take the leadership reigns while the Captain reclaims his health in the suites of PPG Paints Arena in a suit and tie.

Game 4 has elements that confirm it’s a pivotal moment for each of these teams, but how the Penguins recover from their unfortunate luck will decide the mood of this series going forward. If the Capitals throw another barrage at Pittsburgh tonight, which they will, I fully expect the Pens to weather it. They’re veterans, their emotions are high, and they’re going to be fighting for their Captain.
