Defenseman Letang, who hasn’t played since Dec. 13 due to elbow surgery, ruled himself out this morning. Center Malkin (lower-body, last played Dec. 14) skated prior to the rest of his teammates this morning, a strong indication he’d be out as well (since confirmed.)
On the bright side for the banged-up Pens, tonight’s game is at Consol Energy Center, where Pittsburgh is 17-3-0 this season. The Penguins’ last home loss was all the way back on Nov. 13, 2-1 to the Flyers.
Marc-Andre Fleury will start in goal for Pittsburgh.
