    Positive injury updates for Pens' Malkin, Crosby

    PITTSBURGH -- Penguins star center Evgeni Malkin "probably is already ready to go" for the start of next season following recovery from torn ligaments in his right knee, Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma said Monday.

    Bylsma revealed some good news regarding the team's other former scoring champion, as well.

    Malkin, in his native Russia for the summer, is making significant progress in his rehabilitation from February surgery to repair a torn ACL and MCL.

    The coach reiterated that Malkin was so far ahead of schedule that he perhaps could have played this spring had the Penguins advanced deeper into the playoffs.
    Bylsma said Crosby has been cleared by doctors for twice-per-day, off-ice workouts, just as he normally would at this point of the offseason.

    Good news to read this.
    I don't think I woulda felt comfortable to have Malkin return during the playoffs but it's nice to read he had a chance to come back that soon.

    I highly doubt he would have suited up, even if all the series went 7 games. That being said however, it is good to hear that Crosby is conditioning as if nothing happened and Malkin seems to be past any ailments he may have had
