The Penguins received good news on Monday in regards to the recent injury to star forward Evgeni Malkin
. The defending Art Ross and Conn Smythe champion suffered an undisclosed injury after being hit with a shot in Pittsburgh's 2-1 victory at Tampa Bay Sunday evening.
Though the injury could have been more severe, x-ray results showed nothing was broken, and Malkin is being listed as day-to-day by the team.
Malkin was hit by a shot from teammate Kris Letang
in the second period against the Lightning. He left the game at that time and did not return.
