Monday Injury Update
@PensInsideScoop Roster. Needed room for BMorrow. Letang can come off IR any time -SK “ @Tcm20 Saw Letang on IR. Is injury worse or just for roster purposes?”
@PensInsideScoop @TrixoutlawJason They are OK right now with Malkin and Letang in IR. But if they get healthy, need to send someone down -SK
Once again, each practiced with their teammates Monday at Consol Energy Center. Both, however, “remain day-to-day at this time,” coach Dan Bylsma said.
Letang (lower body) has missed the past three games and Malkin (shoulder) has not played in the previous nine contests. All have been wins for the Penguins, who have a season-high 12-game winning streak.
“There’s no point to rush,” Letang said. “The team is doing really well ,so you want to be 100 percent. So that’s what I’m going to do.
Pressed further about how he feels, the NHL’s leading scorer among defensemen allowed that he felt “better.”
“I try to get better every day,” Letang said. “There’s no time frame right now… We’ll see how I feel tomorrow and go from there.” Source
