• Center Evgeni Malkin (shoulder) missed an eighth consecutive game for the Penguins on Sunday, against Philadelphia. He practiced with teammates in the morning but said his right shoulder remains sore. Malkin has not played in 12 of the Penguins' 33 games. Malkin, the MVP last season and a two-time scoring champion, said he has had discussions with coach Dan Bylsma about his return. Malkin said he has been urged not to rush back, as he has in previous seasons.

Noah Brocklebank, 13, attended his first NHL game Sunday. Brocklebank was featured on CBS News after publicly announcing a suicide attempt on social media as a result of bullying. On the TV segment, Brocklebank wore a Penguins T-shirt featuring goalie Marc-Andre Fleury. Karen Brocklebank, Noah's mother, is originally from Squirrel Hill, though she and her son live in Columbia, Md. Fleury presented Noah Brocklebank with a black game jersey that other Penguins autographed. Brocklebank also took pictures with players while wearing the helmet of defenseman Kris Letang.

• Letang (groin) missed a third consecutive game, though he also practiced in the morning. Bylsma did not elaborate on when Letang and/or Malkin would again play. The Penguins play Montreal on Tuesday, the second of a five consecutive games at Consol Energy Center.

• Right winger Tyler Kennedy (illness) returned to the lineup and played on the third line with center Brandon Sutter and left winger Matt Cooke. He was a late scratch Friday at the New York Islanders.
