Letang scored twice, including the game-winner, and added an assist in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Islanders. He used Jean-Gabriel Pageau as a screen and ramped his shot off the Islander's stick blade and past Semyon Varlamov's blocker side to net the winner. Letang is on a four-game, seven-point streak (four goals, three assists) and ironically, all four of his goals this season have come against the Isles. His 14 points in 18 games would scale up to more than 60 points in a normal season. Letang is a strong fantasy activation.
Letang (undisclosed) registered an assist with three hits, two blocks and two PIM in Thursday's 5-2 loss to Washington. Letang left Tuesday's tilt with the Capitals with his injury but was right back in the lineup for the rematch, logging a team-leading 23:50 of ice time. He assisted on Jake Guentzel's game-tying goal in the third period, giving him 11 points (two goals, nine assists) after 17 games. Letang is well off of last year's scoring pace that netted him 15 goals and 29 helpers in 61 contests.
Letang (undisclosed) is expected to play Thursday against the Capitals, Dan Kingerski of Pittsburgh Hockey Now reports. Letang exited Tuesday's matchup with Washington in the third period with an undisclosed issue, but it appears as though his departure may have been precautionary. The 33-year-old Letang will slot into his usual spots on the Penguins' top pairing and first power-play unit Thursday.
Letang (undisclosed) didn't finish Tuesday's game versus the Capitals due to injury, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Letang didn't play down the stretch in a tied game, which would have been odd had he not been injured. The severity of Letang's injury isn't known at this time, but there should be an update on his status prior to Thursday's rematch with the Capitals.
Letang scored his first two goals of the season and dished out five hits in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Islanders. Letang entered the night without a goal in his first 14 games of the season, but he managed to find the net on both of his shots Saturday. He opened the scoring with a power-play goal 12:35 into the first period, ripping a one-timer past Semyon Varlamov from above the left faceoff circle to break the dry spell. Then he broke a 2-2 tie in the third period, using a subtle toe drag to set up a screen before going top shelf on Varlamov for the game-winner. Letang scored 31 goals over the previous two seasons combined, so it was just a matter of time before the proverbial dam broke. He now has nine points in 15 games on the year.
