'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Goaltender Jocelyn Thibault will make his second start of the season tonight against Buffalo. Marc-Andre Fleury will be back in goal Saturday against the New York Rangers at Mellon Arena.

• Forward Evgeni Malkin did not comment Thursday on the court ruling that allowed him to remain with the Penguins. A federal court in New York rejected an injunction request by two Russian teams Wednesday. Malkin likely will stay mum until his former team, Metallurg Magnitogorsk, decides whether to appeal the ruling.

• A team official called Penguins coach Michel Therrien during a meeting Wednesday afternoon with the news about the court ruling.

"I was confident everything would be OK," Therrien said.

Forward Sidney Crosby wasn't even aware Malkin's case was in court until he read the update in yesterday's newspaper.

"I never knew there was a question whether he'd play the rest of the season," Crosby said. "It's good it's done. I'm sure it's a load off his mind, and it will be easier for him to go along now."

• Forwards Nils Ekman and Maxime Talbot participated in the morning skate. Ekman sat out Monday's game against Philadelphia with an illness, and Talbot missed Wednesday's workout to attend to a personal matter.
