Minus Malkin, Penguins host Canucks

PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Penguins and Vancouver Canucks each will be missing a key player when they meet Wednesday night at PPG Paints Arena.

Penguins center Evgeni Malkin will sit out at least that game because of an upper-body injury. Canucks winger Derek Dorsett has been sent back to Vancouver for evaluation after experiencing a recurrence of problems following cervical fusion surgery nearly a year ago.

Malkin was injured Saturday in a game against Chicago. He participated in a rigorous practice Monday but did not take the ice Tuesday. He has not been ruled out for Friday's game at Boston.
