Malkin, Letang still out for Penguins vs. Isles
UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP)
Malkin is sidelined Friday night because of an upper body injury, while Letang is dealing with a lower body problem.
Malkin, who earlier in the week eyed the matchup with the Islanders as a possible return date, sat out for a seventh straight time. Letang missed his second game and is considered to be day to day.
However, the Penguins haven't missed a beat without them. Pittsburgh is the first NHL team to record at least a 10-game winning streak in three consecutive seasons, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
