Malkin (lower body) will be in the lineup against the Flyers on Monday.
Malkin makes his return following a 23-game stint on injured reserve due to his lower-body issue. In addition to jumping onto the Penguins' second line with Jason Zucker and Kasperi Kapanen, the Russian center is poised to retake his spot on the No. 1 power play. Prior to getting hurt, Malkin was riding an eight-game point streak during which he racked up four goals and eight assists, including four power-play points.
