Zbynek Michalek Will Miss Two Weeks

Penguins defenseman Zbynek Michalek should be on the shelf for two weeks with a right shoulder injury. He and winger Arron Asham, who also has a shoulder injury, should be back at around the same time.


The Pens will miss Michalek - their reliance on guys like Deryk Engelland and Andrew Hutchinson on defense has cost them so far.


Sidney Crosby missed practice today as well, presumably with hip problems, but he should be ready to go tomorrow against the Islanders.
