The Penguins have now lost two in a row and are having a hard go of it with injuries, especially so early in the season.  And with so many games in such a short time that doesn’t help giving them the time to get people back.  But now the Pens may have to deal with the possible suspension of Kris Letang per NBC’s Prohockeytalk.com.  Letang was penalized last night in the 3rd period for boarding.  It was a minor penalty but the NHL is taking that seriously this year and Letang is set to speak with them today.  Letang not being a repeat offender should be fine, but if they decide to make an example out of Letang it could be ugly for the Pens tonight in Minnesota.

The Penguins are already without the usual, Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Brooks Orpik & Dustin Jeffery.  All but Malkin haven’t played this season, but Malkin has missed the last 4 out of 5 games.  But in addition Tyler Kennedy was out of the lineup last night due to  concussion- like symptoms and his status tonight is doubtful.  In an effort to fill in the roster the Penguins recalled Defenseman Brian Strait from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

The Penguins play tonight against the Minnesota Wild and will be aired on Versus and then will travel home to host the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night.
