Malkin skates, but won't be in lineup Saturday
Injured Penguins center Evgeni Malkin skated on his own Friday with strength coach Mike Kadar, but will not play Saturday afternoon.

Injured Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin skated on his own Friday with strength coach Mike Kadar, but will not play Saturday afternoon against the New York Rangers, the team announced.

Malkin is sidelined with an upper-body injury sustained March 9 in a game against the Toronto Maple Leafs. It was his third game back in the lineup after missing time due to a concussion. The Penguins have stated Malkin's injury is not concussion related.

Malkin has five goals and 24 points in 21 games this season.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.

— Chicago Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz on signing Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane to contract extensions
