Malkin says he likely would have returned in the Conference Finals

Malkin said today that he likely would have returned in the third round of the playoffs. As reported earlier this week, Malkin’s knee injury was not as severe as once believed by the team. The good news is that the Penguins will have him at full strength once camp begins and Malkin be skating at full speed for several months.
