KRIS LETANG RUMORS & GOSSIP
A few years ago when Kris Letang got knocked out of a game against Dallas with a concussion, it stopped his great season in its tracks. Maybe, after getting knocked out of last Tuesday’s game against the Flyers the universe reset Letang.
Probably not, but holy **** Kris Letang had 5 assists in this game, and that is remarkable.

NEW YORK — The NHL has suspended Flyers forward Zac Rinaldo for eight games for charging and boarding Penguins defenseman Kris Letang.

With things being what they are, it is hard to find a ton of faults in this game. The Penguins got bad news before the game with both Kris Letang and Evgeni Malkin out.

The Penguins seemingly can’t get to the All-Star break soon enough.

After all was said and done, the teams combined for 93 penalty...

Willie Mitchell wasn’t content to let things end once officials stepped in between him and Kris Letang so he decided to take things one step further. Mitchell was able to rip off Letang’s helmet and then tried to hit him in the head with it.
Some extremely scary news was delivered by the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday morning: Pens’ defenseman Kris Letang suffered a stroke last week and is expected to miss at least six weeks while recovering.
