Evgeni Malkin (shoulder) and Kris Letang (lower body) are both considered questionable to play Tuesday night.

Malkin's already missed eight games with the injury, but the Penguins refuse to rush him back into the lineup. Coach Dan Bylsma called both players "very close" to returning after Tuesday's morning skate. Owners will want to check back closer to pregame warmups for official word on their status.
