Report: Pens’ Evgeni Malkin to miss contest vs. Panthers because of sunburn
But further examination from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reveals that Malkin may having been sitting in the Florida sun too long saying that it looks like Malkin may have a severe sunburn. The reports also says that Malkin looked fine during this morning’s practice.
The Penguins are 31-10-0 and have already clinched the Atlantic Division title and lead the Eastern Conference by five points over the Montreal Canadiens. They are also without center Sidney Crosby who will miss his sixth straight contest due to a broken jaw and there is no timetable for his return.
