Malkin out for remainder of Pens' road trip
Reports out of Pittsburgh have confirmed that Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin did not accompany the team on its two-game road trip as a result of recurring soreness to his surgically repaired right knee.

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Malkin, who has 4 points but has missed three of the past four games, will be sidelined for matches in Winnipeg on Monday and Minnesota on Tuesday. He'll be re-evaluated prior to Pittsburgh's home contest against the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday.

In addition to Malkin, Sidney Crosby (concussion), Brooks Orpik (abdomen) and Dustin Jeffrey (knee) did not join the team for the two-game road trip. Crosby was cleared for contact last week, but the Penguins have no plans to rush him back into action.

Quote of the Day

Philadelphia is where I started my NHL career and this is where I want to be so I am really happy. This definitely gives me a lot of confidence by the Flyers showing that they have confidence in me. I know they want to see me get better as a player and this is the place to do it.

— Zac Rinaldo to the Flyers website on signing a two-year contract extension with Philadelphia
