PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins forward Ryan Malone left the team
Wednesday in Boston and returned to Pittsburgh to be treated by
team doctors for an infected cut on his leg.

The infection resulted in flu-like symptoms that caused Malone
to sit out the Penguins' 4-0 loss Tuesday night against the New York Rangers.

The Penguins were off Wednesday before playing in Boston on
Thursday night. They return home to play the New York Islanders on
Friday. Malone is expected to miss both games.

Malone is sixth in scoring on the team with nine goals and five
assists in 32 games.
