PITTSBURGH - Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin will likely not play against the Detroit Red Wings at Consol Energy Center on Thursday.
Malkin, sidelined since Feb. 2 with a lower-body injury, has resumed skating on his own but could miss a seventh consecutive game Thursday. After remaining in Pittsburgh during the Penguins' road trip to Carolina and Florida last weekend, Malkin did not participate in practice Wednesday and was absent during the optional morning skate Thursday.
