Malkin Taking a Rest?

According to Dan Bylsma, Evgeni Malkin was simply being rested in the third period against Calgary. 

Relentless Analysis: Ah, hockey injuries. More a case of Jordan Staal's "dehydration", I am sure. I don't buy Bylsma's explanation, as Geno was on camera skating tentatively on a stoppage favoring his leg before returning to the bench. Malkin is clearly nursing an injury. How bad we'll just have to see. With such a grueling schedule in store for the Pens, limiting his ice time (or sitting him) against Edmonton tomorrow night might be a wise move. It's a long season...
