Malkin Not Ready To Play Just Yet

from Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,

Evgeni Malkin is an NHL scoring champion and playoff MVP.

And for an hour or so during the practice at Consol Energy Center Monday afternoon, he was one of the most gifted fourth-line centers in hockey history.

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.
