FROM ELIAS: Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin scored the goals for the Penguins in their 2–1 win over the Blue Jackets. Crosby and Malkin have been teammates for eight seasons but this was the first time that they each tallied one goal in a Pittsburgh win, regular season or playoffs, in which the Penguins scored only twice. They’ve done that twice in losses in which Pittsburgh scored exactly two goals (Nov. 12, 2007 vs. New Jersey and Jan. 23, 2013 vs. Toronto).
