Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin is not practicing with his teammates today. That plays into the thought process from yesterday that the team will hold him out of the lineup until Saturday night against Buffalo.
The Penguins host the Toronto Maple Leafs tomorrow night.
Malkin has missed two straight games but has…
been skating and going through individual workouts and has been in good spirits. He looked very good in yesterday’s individual on-ice workouts.
Also, forward Mike Comrie is not practicing. His status is still unknown. I’ve seen him around the facility though going through workouts. Word out the GM meetings is that the Penguins are trying to find the “right deal” for Comrie in the wake of Jordan Staal’s return.
Comrie’s absence is just another missed opportunity for him.
