Pens Report: Latest on Letang
The reason Letang took the ice so late was because he was seeing the doctor for his facial injuries. For those of you that didn’t know, Letang suffered a broken nose late in the third period of Saturday’s game in Montreal when he absorbed a high hit from Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty (who faced a phone hearing with NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan today for it).
When Letang hit the ice, he did some skating and passing drills with assistant coach Todd Reirden to see how he reacted to his facial injuries, saying he “feels all right so far” save for some trouble breathing through his fractured nose. He’ll talk to the doctors again Tuesday.
While Letang didn’t confirm that he would be playing tomorrow night against the Rangers, saying “I hope so,” Bylsma added, “We’re not under the impression that we’ll need to recall somebody right now.” – Full Pens Report with more from Kris
