A new season is usually looked at as a rebirth of sorts, a veritable wiping clean of the slate and a chance to start over. The Penguins, like their 29 NHL counterparts, were hoping to do just that, but for as much as they would like to start a new, they just cannot seem to shake the injury bug.
They are still dealing with the lingering injuries to Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, probably the two that affected the team most last season, and have grafted several others onto the injured list during the early stages of the 2011-12 campaign.

from Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Monday in Winnipeg, my taxi driver was asking his radio dispatcher when Sidney Crosby might be back, I overheard two children in a store debating with their father which of Crosby or Evgeni Malkin was better, and the airport customs guy looked at my passport and asked me about Tyler Kennedy. Small wonder Manitoba native Arron...
Penguins center Evgeni Malkin returned to practice Friday at Consol Energy Center and has not been ruled out of a home game tonight against New Jersey. "He's doing pretty well, and we are still seeing about [tonight]," coach Dan Bylsma said. Malkin has missed the past four games and six total because of soreness in his surgically repaired right knee.

Another game, another miss for Evgeni Malkin. The Penguins have ruled Geno out for Saturdayâs tilt against New Jersey. Itâs hard to say whether one should be encouraged that heâs skating during practice or disappointed that heâs seen action in...
It's uncertain when Sidney Crosby will return, but the Pittsburgh Penguins are starting to get healthy.
They may need all the help they can get against a New Jersey Devils club off to its best start in three seasons.
With Evgeni Malkin possibly returning from injury and defenseman Kris Letang back following a two-game suspension, the Penguins go for a third straight victory...
From Red Fisher at The Gazette:
For now, at least, is there a better team in the NHL than Pittsburgh?
Mention Washington’s 6-0 record and you get no argument from anyone until, that is, the Penguins’ 5-2-2 record is mentioned despite missing their four best players.
Evgeni Malkin, Sidney Crosby, Tyler Kennedy and Kris Letang didn’t dress for Thursday’s 3-1 victory over...
