According to a recent post on NHL.com, Geno will give the morning skate a go and decide whether or not he's game ready:
"(My shoulder) feels great. It’s not sore, no pain. We’ll see (Saturday) at the morning skate. Maybe I’ll be playing. (Saturday) is a big day for me. We’ll see after practice how my shoulder feels and if it feels good then I’ll play."
You had to assume something good was in the works when the Penguins announced this morning that they were sending Chris Conner back down to WBS. On a similar injury report, Max Talbot is a little over a week away from returning as well. Max was cleared for contact in yesterday's practice, clearing one more horrid red jersey from the crowd.
I suppose we all want some sort of magical return -- a goal or two, maybe one on the PP. Do you think Malkin's return will bring an immediate impact?
