Pittsburgh Penguins

Malkin (lower-body) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.

Malkin has missed the last seven games with a lower-body injury, but he skated on the third line in Monday's practice as well as taking reps on the top power play unit, so all signs point towards him playing tomorrow. However, Mike Sullivan listed him as a game-time decision so monitor his status in tomorrow's morning skate.

Malkin (upper-body) will be a game-time decision for Game 2.

Malkin took part in the Penguins’ practice on Friday and it looks like he could return for Game 2. He centred a line with Conor Sheary and Bryan Rust on the wings, but due to the early start on Saturday, there will be no morning skate. Monitor his status a few hours before puck-drop.

Malkin (lower-body) will return to the Penguins lineup on Saturday.

Malkin missed 10 games with a knee injury, but will return to the Penguins lineup on Saturday vs. the Jets. Malkin has 23 goals and 26 assists (49 points) in 52 games this season and should be activated in all formats. The Jets have given up 17 goals in their last four games, so this matchup offers a lot of promise for Malkin.

Malkin will miss the next two games with a nagging undisclosed injury.

The Penguins have a back-to-back on Friday and Saturday, but Malkin will not be available. This is a tough blow for the Penguins, who also lost Eric Fehr on Tuesday, so they will need to recall a centre from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (AHL). Monitor Malkin’s status heading into next week.
