Evgeni Malkin's X-Ray is negative (which is a positive)

From the team:

The Penguins recieved good news on Monday in regards to the recent injury to star forward Evgeni Malkin. The defending Art Ross and Conn Smythe champion suffered an undisclosed injury after being hit with a shot in Pittsburgh's 2-1 victory at Tampa Bay Sunday evening.

Though the injury could have been more severe, x-ray results showed nothing was broken, and Malkin is being listed as day-to-day by the team.

We'll wait and see how Malkin progresses, obviously this is about the best news we could get.  The Pens have two days off but then begin another taxing stretch of playing five games in eight nights, and 7 games in 12 days.

It remains to be seen when Malkin can re-join the lineup, but day-to-day with no fractures revealed is sure better than week-to-week with damage.
