Good news for all you Malkin (and Crosby) owners, the Penguins have returned winger Chris Conner to their AHL affiliate meaning that Evgeni Malkin, who has missed seven games with strained shoulder, expects to play Saturday against Boston. The Penguins went 2-5 without Malkin in the lineup. Oh, and Crosby has been terrible…

UPDATE: Penguins beat reporter Rob Rossi has confirmed this morning that Evgeni Malkin will be in the lineup tonight, but Chris Kunitz is expected to miss 2 weeks with a lower-body injury.
