Found October 13, 2011 on Pro Sports Daily:
Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin will be a game-time decision for Thursday's contest against the rival Washington Capitals. Malkin has missed the team's last two games with a lower-body injury. He suffered the injury during Saturday's 5-3 win over the Calgary Flames. "I feel good, but I can’t say now,” Malkin said. “It’s a game-time decision. If I feel better tonight, then I will. But if not, I can’t play. "Yeah, I had a couple days off and my knee feels better. I had a good warmup today and we’ll see tonight.” The 2009 Conn Smythe Trophy winner has been working his way back from surgery which repaired a torn ACL and MCL in his right knee. Malkin had the surgery on Feb. 10 and finished his season with 15 goals, 22 assists and 18 penalty minutes in 43 games. Malkin, 25, has collected a goal and an assist in two games this season for the Penguins.
