Malkin does off-ice workouts second straight day

Pittsburgh Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said injured center Evgeni Malkin has done off-ice workouts each of the past two days.

"Evgeni Malkin has been working out the last two days, not skating, back in Pittsburgh," Bylsma said Saturday before his team played the Montreal Canadiens.

Bylsma said there was no medical reason Malkin did not skate Saturday, that it was an ice-availability issue. He suffered a concussion in a Feb. 22 game against the Florida Panthers and was placed on injured reserve Sunday.

"He's working out off-ice both yesterday and today," Bylsma said.

Malkin has four goals and 21 points in 18 games this season.

Byslma said defenseman Paul Martin is day-to-day with a lower-body injury.
