I hope you all had a good Festivus (or alternate winter holiday) break. Not a lot of NHL news was made over the last few days, what with the unfettered consumption of turkey and the frantic wrapping/unwrapping of presents, but there are a few storylines that have my attention as we come out of the short break.

First: the status of Evgeni Malkin. Geno's missed five games in a row since suffering a leg injury back on Dec. 14, and though the high-flying Penguins have won four of five even in his absence, they were on the wrong side of a 5-0 shutout by Ottawa in their final game before the break. The Pens are fortunate to have the depth to deal with losing Malkin for a little while, but if he's out longer-term, it'll really affect them. We'll see if these few days off gave him enough time to feel better.
