Defenseman Kris Letang, who is believed to have aggravated a leg injury during a 2-1 victory over Boston Sunday, and center Evgeni Malkin, who has missed the past five games because of an unspecified injury, will not dress for the Penguins' game against Washington tonight at 7:38 at Consol Energy Center, coach Dan Bylsma said.
He added that if left winger Matt Cooke, who sat out the game-day skate, does not play, the Penguins would dress seven defensemen.
Bylsma would not elaborate on Cooke's status, saying only that, aside from Letang and Malkin, all lineup-related issues will be "game-time decisions."
Bylsma also said that Marc-Andre Fleury will start in goal.
