Pens Points Sunday: Winnipeg Gameday, Malkin and Letang Activated Off IR

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

Letang and Malkin off IR, both may play today against the Jets. Bylsma on the verge of franchise record for wins. Vokoun's return looks unlikely.

Well, finally some more good news are coming our way!

Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang were activated off of IR today, and are game-time decisions for the Jets game. Looks like Letang's return is all but certain, at least.

Here is the game preview from Empty Netters.

Dan Bylsma needs one more win to tie Eddie Johnston for the most wins in franchise history.

Thomas Vokoun has now hit the 3-month mark and his medical status is still unclear.

Dan Carcillo is on the move again and back in the Metropolitan Division. He is a New York Ranger now.

A tiny little bat wreaked all kinds of havoc at the Habs-Sens game last night. Here it is, doing a fly-by during O Canada.

Olympics are around the corner, so every performance is magnified. Jonathan Quick is back (woo-hoo) and American goalies went 3-for-3 last night, with a combined SV% of .968. Ryan Suter had a hat-trick.

Every fight between a Canadian and an American player from now on will be viewed through the David Backes circa 2010 lens. Even Sid got into a scrum with McDonagh on Friday (around 9:50 on this clip).

World Juniors end today. Russia defeated Canada for the bronze, next up is Sweden-Finland for the gold.

Game time is 1 pm today (conveniently scheduled to not interfere with the kickoff of Downton Abbey). Let's go Pens!
