Letang missed last night's game with an illness but he will be back tonight vs. the Sabres. He has five goals and 29 assists in 32 games thus far which has him ranked second amongst NHL defenseman. Get him in your lineup.
Letang missed Sunday's practice and was not on the ice again this morning because of an illness. The Penguins have locked up the Eastern Conference so there is no need for their star players to be playing if they aren't at 100%.
Letang is the last player to step onto the ice for the Penguins' game-day skate.
Letang is on the ice with his teammates right now but is taking line-rushes on the 4th D-pairing, which would suggest he won't play tonight. Coach Bylsma will likely give an update on Letang following practice.
No injury updates. I'm expecting Letang to play Tuesday in Raleigh.
Letang skated on his own this morning but not with the team. He will miss his fifth straight game tonight when the Pens take on the Rangers. He has the entire weekend to get ready for Pittsburgh's next game on Tuesday.
Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang reportedly sustained a broken toe on Tuesday in his team's victory over the Montreal Canadiens at Consol Energy Center.
Letang was taken off the injured reserve list Tuesday afternoon after missing four games because of a lower-body injury. He logged more than 24 minutes in Pittsburgh's 1-0 win, its 13th in a row, but told RDS after the game that he was not 100 percent after the first period. According to TSN, the reason he wasn't at full strength was because he has sustained a broken toe. If the Penguins opt to put Letang back on injured reserve, Simon Despres would be his likely replacement in the lineup.
Simon Despres has been sent down in order to clear space for Letang to come off of IR. Despres was in the lineup for the Penguins last game and Douglas Murray will not play tonight, so all signs point to Letang returning to the Pens blueline tonight.
