Penguins All-Star center Evegni Malkin underwent what coach Dan Bylsma termed "successful surgery" today.

The procedure, performed by team physicial Charles Burke, was to repair torn anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his right knee. He is expected to need six months' recovery time.

Malkin was injured Friday in a collision with Buffalo defenseman Tyler Myers.
