Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang will be sidelined for the next two games with a lower-body injury.
Letang also sat out Tuesday's loss to the New York Islanders after he was hurt in Sunday's game against New Jersey.
The 24-year-old Letang has played in 47 of the Penguins' 76 games this season. He missed action for two extended stretches because of concussion issues.
Letang has nine goals and 27 assists for Pittsburgh, which entered play Wednesday trailing the New York Rangers by three points for the top seed in the Eastern Conference with six games to play.
