What the Hell Happened: The Villian A.O. rides again. Captials win 3-1

Sometimes it can be hard to tell when a game changed. There was no hiding when, and how this game did. It all took place during the opening minutes of the third period. Kris Letang and Alexander Ovechkin were chasing down a puck. And this happened: Letang crumbled into a heap, and so did the game. The Penguins main focus after that was A.O. They responded, sticking up for their...

Penguins Fans Throw Beer at Alex Ovechkin for Slashing Kris Letang

  With a goal already under his belt, Alex Ovechkin decided to turn things up a notch against the Penguins with a cheap shot on defender Kris Letang. During the third period, the Capitals star winded up his stick and caught Letang in the ankle, sending him flying into the boards.

Letang Proving His Worth

If there’s an NHL city that can commiserate with woes of life in the salary cap era, it’s the city of Pittsburgh. Even with superstars like Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin taking less to achieve a common goal, it has almost become commonplace to criticize every dollar spent that takes the Penguins closer to the cap ceiling. It’s an understandable dilemma. There’s only so...

What The Hell Happened: Penguins gut out victory without Crosby and Malkin

A few years ago when Kris Letang got knocked out of a game against Dallas with a concussion, it stopped his great season in its tracks. Maybe, after getting knocked out of last Tuesday’s game against the Flyers the universe reset Letang. Probably not, but holy **** Kris Letang had 5 assists in this game, and that is remarkable. Letang helped on goals by Nick Spaling, Steve Downie...

The Kris Letang Debate by @ExcitedBobErrey and @griffTHW

There appears to be no shortage of opinions when it comes to Kris Letang's game or his future with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Whether you love him or hate him, want him dealt or to retire a Penguin, there's one thing everybody can agree on: Letang is as polarizing as they come.  So, with that spirit in mind, Pens Initiative decided to stage its own debate on what could...
