Evgeni Malkin is expected to be sidelined longer term with a lower-body injury

Malkin didn’t participate in Monday’s practice after he was injured on Saturday. His injury is not expected to be season-ending, but this isn’t good news for the Penguins or for Malkin’s fantasy owners. The Penguins anticipate Malkin to be out longer than Nick Bjugstad, who is also sidelined longer term with a lower-body injury.
