Is this Jordan Staal kissing Evgeni Malkin?

A reader sent me this picture that supposedly shows Pittsburgh Penguin Jordan Staal kissing teammate Evgeni Malkin. It is mentioned on this site and this site. It's from 2007 and while it could be them, who knows? It all looks like a big goof anyway. But want to ask our hockey mavens if you think it is these two. The photo has resurfaced thanks to the Pens being in the Stanley Cup Finals.
