Malkin vs Lightning
  • Evgeni Malkin is still not skating or even working out with what is believed to be a lower body injury. The Penguins continue to insist it’s not a long-term injury. “He’s not skating or working out right now,” head coach Mike Johnston said following Friday’s practice session. “I expect that he will be over this next 4-5 days…..It just seems to be one of those things where if I believed it was going to be long-term, I’d tell you it was long-term, but I believe it’s not going to be long-term….. But it’s still a few days away before he’s going to be able to work out and be on the ice.”
