Kris Letang reaches milestone; Penguins 4-2 over the Lightning!
Kris Letang had a goal and an assist from last night’s 4-2 win over the Lightning. It was Kris’ 108th goal in 730 games – tying Paul Coffey’s record (of 108 goals in 331 games) for most by a Penguins defenseman in franchise history. Congrats !!
Next game is against the Ottawa Senators on Friday (7 p.m. ET; ATTSN-PT, TSN5, RDS, NHL.TV)
Quote from Snap Shots:
“Every time you have a performance like that you want to make sure your team responds the right way,” Kris Letang said. “After a normal loss I don’t think we have a meeting, but after a loss that important against a team that’s lower in the standings, we needed to answer and I think it was to make sure everybody was ready to go.”
And they most certainly were. The Pens played with a competitive spirit that was missing on Monday, outworking their opponent in what was overall a pretty dominant performance.
“As a team we all showed up,” Letang said. “We were really invested right from the get-go.”
