Well, this just sucks (and not only because Geno is on my fantasy team along with Goch).  Looks like a bit of line shuffling is on the way for tomorrow.

Penguins' Malkin to miss 'couple weeks' with injury
Thursday, October 29, 2009
By Shelly Anderson, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Penguins center Evgeni Malkin will miss "a couple weeks" because of a strained right shoulder, coach Dan Bylsma announced after practice today at Mellon Arena.

Malkin is tied with Sidney Crosby for the team scoring lead with 14 points. Last season, he won the NHL regular-season and playoff scoring titles and was the playoff MVP as he helped the Penguins win the Stanley Cup.

Bylsma said Malkin has been playing despite the shoulder injury but the decision was made to pull him out of the lineup as a precaution so he can return at full strength.

Malkin had an assist and six shots last night in a 6-1 win over Montreal.

It's early in the season, so I guess it's best that the injuries are happening now to get everyone back to 100% for the stretch run. Starting to wonder where the offense is going to come from though, since we're now missing probably 4 of our top 7 or 8 offensive threats in Gonch, Kennedy, Max and now Geno. Time for Kunitz, Feds, and most importantly Staal to step it up offensively.
