Thank you guys, this is a nice surprise for me," Malkin said. "Thank you everyone, not just (Chris Kunitz) and Lazy (James Neal). I had a tough injury and you all supported me. I love you guys."
On an In the Room from earlier this season, there's a great clip of a game where Neal is wearing a Mike (maybe one of the NJ games?), and the conversation between him and Malkin is priceless:
Neal: "You seriously wanted me to pass it to you there??"
Malkin: "Yeah! Why not!?"
Neal: "Why would I do that when I had the shot?"
Malkin: "Because! I'm OPEN."
