Yeh, 8-1 wouldn't be 8-1 without 5 points.

I did a quick look at Malkin's games: he had 10 3+ point games: 6 against no-playoff teams (by now), 4 against bottom playoff teams (Lev, Neftekhimik, Barys, Severstal), 0 against contenders.
So yeah, he feasts on worse teams, and yeah, this is completely normal. If we have to compare him to Ovechkin, we'd better look at Geno's greater ice time and more offensive system. Dynamo, while leading the West, rarely wins games more than +2.

What is really important that even with all that Malkin's scoring doesn't dwarf Ovechkin's so hopefully he's back to his prime ( )
