Letang was on the ice for the Penguins’ morning skate, but will miss his fourth straight game on Thursday. HIs availability for the morning skate is a good sign though and he could be ready to return on Saturday in Philadelphia.
Letang left Tuesday’s game with an upper-body injury and did not return. The Penguins did not give much of an update on Letang, other than to call him day-to-day. Letang has had a difficult time staying healthy throughout his career, so add this to a lengthy list. Monitor his status during Thursday’s morning skate.
Letang missed Wednesday’s practice, but will play on Thursday vs. the Flyers. Letang’s health has been a common question mark this season, but when he has been in the lineup he has produced at a high rate. Letang has 30 points (6G / 24A) in 35 games this season.
After missing Sunday’s game vs. the Hurricanes, Letang will play tonight in St. Louis. David Warsofsky (concussion) will come out of the lineup for Letang. He has six goals and 22 assists (28 points) in 34 games this season.
