Penguins notes: Forward Evgeni Malkin remains sidelined

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin remained sidelined for Saturday’s road game against the rival Washington Capitals at Capital One Arena in Washington. Malkin has missed 23 consecutive games because of a suspected right knee injury he suffered March 16. Currently designated to long-term injured reserve, Malkin’s potential return has been anticipated since he participated in a full-contact capacity during practice Wednesday in Cranberry.
