Letang on his goal: “It’s a pretty open game. Tavares was dangling and they were focused on him. I was just trying to get there and be open. I faked the one-timer and walked around Price.” -SK

Letang on the 3-on-3 format” “It’s way better. The 5-on-5 there isn’t enough room. Guys are just coasting. This you have to skate and there’s something to win. So guys are trying hard.” -SK

Fortunately for two swift-skating Penguins, it worked out well; Crosby and Letang were two of the event’s more entertaining participants.

“Guys were trying crazy stuff out there,” Letang said. “Nobody wants to get injured. It’s a little soft, but it’s fun to see how much skill these guys have.” – Source

“It’s a lot of talent. It’s a pretty open game,” Letang said. “You try to pass the puck more than you would. You also want to be careful with the goalies and players (for injuries). The fans paid money to come and see so you try to put a good show on and try different things.” – Source
