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 has been out since March 11th and remains day-to-day. He reportedly skated prior to the Penguins practice, but did not take part in the practice session. All signs are pointing towards him missing the start of the series, but could be back later in the series or to start the second round.
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 (lower-body) will miss the Penguins' next three games.
Malkin was already ruled of for Wednesday’s game vs. the Rangers but head coach Mike Sullivan ruled him out of the two-game road trip on Friday and Monday. His next chance to return will be next Thursday vs. the Red Wings.
Malkin (lower-body) will miss his third straight game.
Malkin remains day-to-day with a lower-body injury. He did not take part on the Penguins morning skate which suggests that he’s not on the verge of returning. Monitor his status league up to Wednesday’s game vs. the Rangers.
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.
Malkin (undisclosed) will return to the Penguins lineup on Sunday.
Malkin has missed the last two games, but will be back in today in Philadelphia. The Penguins have been struggling to score goals recently, so Malkin’s return is huge. He has 28 goals and 42 assists (70 points) in 65 games this season.
Malkin is expected to miss 2-4 days with an undisclosed injury.
Malkin missed practice the last two days as “maintenance” but it was clearly more serious than that as he was held out of Wednesday’s game and could miss the Penguins back-to-back on the weekend. Monitor Gino’s status heading into the weekend.
