Malkin Returns Tomorrow,Letestu Out 4-6 Weeks

-Evgeni Malkin will be returning to the Penguins lineup tomorrow night for their game against the Buffalo Sabres at the Consol Energy Center. Malkin has missed the last five games because of a banged up knee as well as a sinus infection.  Malkin will be expected to give the offense a big lift with Sidney Crosby still sidelined.

-It seems that every time we hear good news, bad news comes with it. Mark Letestu, coming off a strong season so far, will have to undergo arthroscopic knee surgery for a meniscus injury that he suffered in practice on Tuesday. He is expected to miss four to six weeks. Tough injury to have, but it will give Dustin Jeffrey a nice opportunity to show what he's got.

-The Sidney Crosby mystery continues as he will now temporarily leave the team to visit his parents. There is still no timetable for Crosby to return. He is suffering from a concussion. Arron Asham is listed as day to day, according to Dan Bylsma.
