Letang scored a goal on four shots in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Blues.
Letang upped his goal-scoring streak to three games while logging a team-leading 28:23 of playing time. The veteran defenseman is turning in another productive season for the Penguins, accounting for seven goals and 16 points with a plus-6 rating in 19 games.
Letang scored a goal on six shots in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Blue Jackets.
Letang's tally in the third period gave the Penguins hope for a comeback, but they were unable to build on it. The defenseman has two goals and an assist in three games since returning from a lower-body injury. For the season, Letang has six goals and 15 points in 18 contests.
Letang tallied two points during Wednesday night's 8-6 win over the Canucks.
Playing in his second game back since missing eight contests with a lower-body injury, Letang played a pivotal role in Pittsburgh's comeback win, highlighted by his game-winning goal, Letang's fifth marker of 2019-20. The 32-year-old is up to 14 points this season, in 17 games played.
Letang (lower body) was activated from injured reserve and will suit up for Monday's tilt against Calgary.

Letang (lower body) skated in Sunday's practice in a full-contact jersey and will be a game-time call for Monday's game against Calgary, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.
This is the first time the blueliner has taken the ice after being sidelined since early November with the lower-body issue. Letang has resided on injured reserve since his injury, but this news is evidence that his return could be coming soon. The Penguins will likely update his status prior to Monday's game against the Flames, but if he can't suit up, Zach Trotman should continue to see time in the lineup.
The Penguins have placed Letang on injured reserve, per the NHL media site.
Letang has been sidelined since early November with a lower-body issue, so this move is essentially procedural. The transaction rules him out for Friday's contest and likely beyond, though the team's activation of the blueliner should timestamp his return to action. The Penguins will continue to search for production along the blue line without their top point-producing defenseman available.
Letang (lower body) is skating on his own, but has yet to join the team on the ice.
While it's certainly a step in the right direction, the news effectively rules Letang out versus the Islanders on Tuesday. The blueliner should probably be considered a longshot to play in Pittsburgh's upcoming back-to-back versus the Islanders and Devils on Thursday and Friday, respectively, as well. Once cleared to play, the Montreal native will retake his spot in the top pairing alongside Brian Dumoulin, but he may have to settle for minutes with the No. 2 power-play unit.
Letang (lower body) won't play Saturday against Toronto.
It'll be a fifth consecutive absence for Letang, still sidelined with a lower-body injury he suffered Nov. 4. The Penguins' top man on the blue line has collected 12 points in 15 contests this season. With two days off between games, Letang will hope he can return to game action Tuesday versus the Islanders.
Letang (lower body) didn't make the trip to New York and will miss both Tuesday's matchup with the Rangers and Friday's clash with the Devils, Josh Getzoff of PensTV reports.
Considering the club classified Letang as week-to-week, it shouldn't come as a shock to see him missing from the lineup for a few more games. At this point, the elite blueliner should probably be considered a long shot to play against Toronto on Saturday as well. In his stead, Justin Schultz will quarterback the top power-play unit while John Marino continues to see an uptick in ice time.
Letang is considered week-to-week due to his lower-body injury.
Letang is set to miss some time, which shouldn't come as a surprise considering he's played in 75-plus games just once since the 2010-11 campaign. Prior to getting hurt, the all-star defenseman had registered 12 points in 15 games while averaging 25:00 of ice time. Without Letang in the lineup, Justin Schultz is set to quarterback the No. 1 power-play unit, while rookie John Marino figures to see the biggest uptick in ice time.
Letang (lower body) will not play in Thursday's matchup with the Islanders and is doubtful versus Chicago on Saturday after coach Mike Sullivan told reporters the defender was "not a probability", Dave Molinari of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.
Letang was spotted without a visible limp, which could be an indication of a short-term absence. The Montreal native is goalless in seven straight games, despite having put 22 shots on net over that stretch. With Letang sidelined, the club will pair John Marino with Brian Dumoulin while Juuso Riikola slots into the lineup for the first time since Oct. 26.
Letang left Monday's loss to the Bruins with a lower-body injury.
Letang missed most of the third period after suffering an injury. He's currently being evaluated.
Letang earned an assist versus the Flyers on Tuesday, bringing a four-game pointless streak to a close.
Unfortunately for fantasy owners, Letang is still stuck in a five-game goal drought and hasn't registered a point with the man advantage since Oct. 10. Regardless of the scoresheet, the Montreal native figures to continue logging over 25 minutes per game and should be a mainstay on the No. 1 power-play unit.
Letang scored two goals on five shots while adding one blocked shot and a plus-3 rating in Friday's 4-2 win over the Stars.
His first goal was a beauty -- Letang collected a loose puck in the Stars' zone, danced around two defenders trying to block shots, and eventually tucked the puck through the five-hole on Anton Khudobin. The 32-year-old blueliner now has four goals and 10 points through eight games to begin the season.
Letang dished out two assists with three shots on goal and was plus-3 in Sunday's 7-2 victory over the Jets.
The 32-year-old is now riding a six-game point streak to start the season, counting two goals and eight points so far. He's also had at least three shots on goal in every game, with four shots in half of them. Letang is coming off of back-to-back 50-point seasons and last year matched his career high with 16 goals. He remains the go-to defenseman on the Penguins' blue line.
Letang scored a goal, supplied an assist, fired four shots on goal and went plus-3 in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Wild.

Letang first assisted Sidney Crosby early in the second period before tallying in the middle of a three-goals-in-2:28 stretch in the middle of the frame.

Letang finished a 4-1 loss to Winnipeg on Tuesday with an assist.
The veteran blueliner has points in each of his team's first three games, two coming on power plays.

Expect Letang to see a heavy workload against Anaheim, as Pittsburgh looks to turn things around following a slow start to the 2019-20 season.
Letang scored a power-play goal in Saturday's 7-2 dismantling of the Blue Jackets.
Letang has two points on the year, both of which came on the power play. The blueliner has not been hesitant to shoot the puck this far, as he racked up seven shots through the opening two contests. Health has always been a concern for the Montreal native, but if he can avoid any extended absences, he could find himself in contention for the Norris Trophy at the end of the campaign.
Letang notched a power-play assist in Thursday's 3-1 defeat to the Sabres.
Despite the point, Letang likely won't look back at Thursday's opener fondly, as he recorded four giveaways and was a minus-2. The blueliner racked up 27:45 of ice time, which included a staggering 6:41 with the man advantage, and should continue to see a similar workload heading into Saturday's clash with Columbus.
Letang bagged a helper in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Islanders.
Letang continues to roll with one goal and three assists in his six games back from an upper-body issue. The elite defenseman also registered four shots, three hits and four blocks in Game 1 while logging 28:38 of ice time, including 3:39 with the man advantage. If the Penguins are going to even the series up in Game 2 on Friday, they will probably need Letang to once again write his name on the scoresheet.
