from Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,
Evgeni Malkin is an NHL scoring champion and playoff MVP.

But Malkin won’t be filling that role—or any other—when the Penguins face the New York Rangers at 7:38 p.m. today at Madison Square Garden, because coach Dan Bylsma has ruled him out of the game.
The reason, Bylsma said, is the lingering effects of a sinus infection Malkin has been battling of late.
“He’s not ready to go,” Bylsma said.
