Evgeni Malkin won’t play tomorrow against the Vancouver Canucks

The Penguins center has come down with an injury

NHL: Chicago Blackhawks at Pittsburgh Penguins Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Not great news coming out, but the timing isn’t bad.

Regardless whether the injury happened in the Chicago game on Saturday night, or whether it’s a wear-and-tear type injury over recent times, the Penguins have had 3 days off. The Penguins play against the Canucks tomorrow night and have Thursday off for Thanksgiving before a Friday/Saturday back-to-back with the Bruins and Lightning.

One day off leading to a total of five days off couldn’t be a bad thing in the long run.
