Penguins' Malkin skates, progressing for return from injury

WASHINGTON (AP) The sight of Evgeni Malkin on the ice brought a smile to many in the Pittsburgh Penguins' locker room.

Even knowing they wouldn't have him in the lineup for Game 1 of their second-round series against the Washington Capitals on Thursday night, the back-to-back defending Stanley Cup champions could glean some optimism that the skilled Russian center won't be out long with his apparent leg injury.

"It's always nice to see a guy like him out there," winger Bryan Rust said Thursday after an optional morning skate.
