This tweet went unnoticed by many yesterday.
#Pens coach says Vokoun starting and Martin is out. Malkin not skating but working out off the ice.— Pittsburgh Penguins (@penguins) March 2, 2013
93.7 The Fan reports (of course, without putting up an article anywhere on their website, so I'm not sure whether it was Eric Hagman or Jeff Hatthorn) that the only reason Evgeni Malkin did not skate was that the Penguins were unable to get an open sheet of ice for him.
So, the sky is not falling and the earth has not caved in upon itself. With a home game against the Lightning tomorrow, I'm sure that the team will be able to get Malkin as much ice time as he might need to continue his rehabilitation.
