    Penguins' Kris Letang: Scores in Game 6 defeat

    Kris Letang notched the Pittsburgh Penguins' only goal in Monday's overtime loss to Washington.Letang did everything he could to make up for his defensive lapse in Game 5 that led to Washington taking a 3-2 series lead, but it wasn't enough to force a Game 7. The defenseman -- who missed the entire 2018 Stanley Cup run due to injury -- compiled three goals, eight assists and 25 shots in 12 playoff outings. During the regular season, the 30-year-old notched 51 points, including 20 scored with the man advantage. Although the Montreal native has struggled to stay healthy at times, when he is in the lineup he is a lock for 25-plus minutes per game. Letang should continue to eat up heavy minutes and feature prominently on the power play heading into the 2018-19 campaign.

The only deficiency in the Montreal native's game in the playoffs has been his lack of production on the power play, where he has a mere two assists.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: Bends twine Sunday

    Kris Letang scored the only goal for Pittsburgh in Sunday's Game 2 loss to Washington.Letang is currently averaging a point per game in the postseason (two goals and six assists), which puts him one tally behind John Carlson and Torey Krug. Unsurprisingly, the 30-year-old leads the Pittsburgh Penguins in playoff ice time at 24:59 per game -- a full three minutes more than Justin Schultz. Last season, the team spread out the workload for its defensemen with Letang sidelined, but that is clearly not the plan this time around, as coach Mike Sullivan will lean on the Montreal native as much as he can.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: Dishes three assists in Game 6 win

    Kris Letang notched three assists in Sunday's 8-5 win over the Flyers in Game 6.He saved the best for last in the series, and Letang wraps up the first round with a goal and seven points through six games. The 30-year-old blueliner also laid a surprising six hits in Sunday's win after not recording more than four in any regular-season game, but he likely won't deliver that kind of punishment in the second round, as Letang isn't especially noted for his physical play -- he only got credit for three hits in the first five games against the Flyers.

Now he's carrying that into the postseason.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: On ice for warmups

    Kris Letang (undisclosed) was on the ice for pregame warmups and is expected to suit up for Game 3 Sunday, Sam Werner of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.Letang took a big hit from Philadelphia's Claude Giroux in Game 2 on Friday, but still managed to finish the game after a brief absence. With a long injury history for the 30-year-old, it's fortunate that this wasn't a serious injury to the head or neck. Letang should slot into his normal spot on the top defensive pair and first power-play unit.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: Takes maintenance day

    Kris Letang took a maintenance day away from practice Saturday, but he will travel with the Pittsburgh Penguins to Philadelphia for Game 3 on Sunday.There had been some concern about Letang's availability for Game 3 since Jamie Oleksiak worked on the power play in Letang's stead in the morning session, but those fears have largely been assuaged by coach Mike Sullivan telling reporters that Letang was given the day off for maintenance. Very rarely does this signal a serious injury for a player, but Sullivan tends to be coy about the availability of his injured skaters, so it'll be worth checking back around pregame warmups Sunday to make sure Letang will be out there.
