Malkin is a game-time decision.
Surprisingly, Malkin spoke about his injury a few days ago. Said that the knee didn't feel right but I'm guessing swelling has been an issue for the past few days.

I expect the Caps to come pushing play. Hopefully, that means we can some breakdowns and good chances to counter when they cheat. Goes both ways.
Penguins projected lineup
Jake Guentzel -- Sidney Crosby -- Patric Hornqvist

Dominik Simon -- Riley Sheahan -- Phil Kessel

Conor Sheary -- Derick Brassard -- Bryan Rust

Zach Aston-Reese -- Carter Rowney -- Tom Kuhnhackl

Brian Dumoulin -- Kris Letang

Olli Maatta -- Justin Schultz

Jamie Oleksiak -- Chad Ruhwedel

Matt Murray

Casey DeSmith

Scratched: Matt Hunwick, Carter Rowney, Josh Jooris , Daniel Sprong, Thomas Di Pauli, Adam Johnson, Teddy Blueger, Garrett Wilson, Jean-Sebastien Dea, Lukas Bengtsson, Chris Summers, Jarred Tinordi, Andrey Pedan, Tristan Jarry, Michael Leighton

Injured: Evgeni Malkin (lower body), Carl Hagelin (upper body)

Why is Daniel Sprong highlighted?

How does the lineup change if Geno plays?

Is it simply a matter of moving Sheahan to 4th line and scratching Rowney?

Couple contrasting developments yesterday....
*Malkin skated with the 4th line in practice.
*When asked if Malkin would skate with the 4th line in the game, Sully essentially squashed that idea.

Seems as though IF Malkin goes, he'll be back on the second line, Sheahan with the 4th, Rowney scratched. I dunno...wouldn't be surprised if Malkin sits again.

I highlighted Sprong because so many have clamored for him to get yet another chance. I'm just having a little fun.

No Malkin-hmm...he was complaining yesterday that his conditioning was off. Knee injuries suck.

No Malkin, No Hags again

Pressure is on the CRAPS

If they lose 2 at home, against the Pens when we are missing 2 of our top 6 forwards.... - whew, that would be really really bad

Not to steal the Pens thunder here, but if you’re interested in baseball, you might want to flip the Buccos game on. Nick Kingham is making his major league debut. 0-0 going into the bottom of the sixth. Pirates have only 3 hits...that’s three more than the Cards. Oh...and when the. Adds come back up to the plate, they’ll be starting their third time through the order.
