Penguins team doctors giving Malone additional treatment for cut 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.
