The Pittsburgh Penguins will be without Evgeni Malkin again tomorrow
when they face the Flyers. Malkin has missed four of the past five
games as he’s dealt with a foot injury, and he left practice after just
12 minutes on the ice today. He is not expected to play tomorrow
according to coach Dan Bylsma (via
Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)
Meanwhile, Sergei Gonchar wasn’t on the ice as he deals with an
illness and is questionable tomorrow.
It’s a tough break for the
Penguins, who have struggled (1-2-1) without Malkin in the lineup. Good
thing they have Sidney Crosby there to pick up the slack, right? Oh
that’s right, he has just one assist in the four games that Malkin’s
missed. Purely coincidental, I’m sure.
