Penguins' Letang hurt soon after scoring against Red Wings

DETROIT (AP) Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang twice left a game against the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night after appearing to injure his left knee. Letang got tangled up with Detroit's Thomas Vanek early in the first period and twisted awkwardly on his way down to the ice. He got up slowly and tried to keep weight off his left skate as he went toward the dressing...

Video: Kris Letang trips through the bench door

Kris Letang had quite the tumble while trying to avoid being hit by a puck which may have resulted in a too many men penalty. Letang jumped to avoid the puck, but then tripped through the open bench door. There was some concern that Letang might have been injured, but if you look closely, you’ll see Marc-Andre Fleury having a good laugh at Letang’s expense. Here’s a closer...

Penguins top Sharks at the tank to claim Stanley Cup

The Pittsburgh Penguins are your 2015-16 Stanley Cup champions. The stars were aligned for the Penguins to win the Cup on home ice Friday, but the Sharks forced a Game 6 in San Jose on Sunday. But the second time was the charm for the Penguins, who won their first Stanley Cup Final since 2009, with a 3-1 Game 6 victory. Captain Sidney Crosby won the Conn Smythe Trophy for MVP...

Video: Brian Boyle mocks Kris Letang’s attempt to draw a penalty

The rivalry between Brian Boyle and Kris Letang is heated, but also extremely entertaining. After the two were sent to the box with matching roughing penalties, Boyle took the opportunity to mock Letang’s attempt to draw a penalty. Without context, that’s a pretty weird video of Boyle. Still, he’s not totally wrong as Letang has been a bit theatrical at times in the series...

Video: Ryan Callahan crushes Kris Letang into the boards

At the beginning of each series, every player wants to make an impact. Ryan Callahan knows that feeling, but it just so happens he went a little overboard with this hit on Kris Letang. Everything about his hit on Kris Letang is brutal, from the elbow on the back of his head to the vicious boarding. I am surprised that Letang was able to get up and skate off under his own power....

Kris Letang gets one-game suspension for high hit on Marcus Johansson

Yesterday, we took a quick look at Kris Letang’s “dangerous” hit on Marcus Johansson. Here is a video of the incident if you have yet to see it: I don’t think it was intentional by any means, but it is one of those hits that needs to be removed from the game. It is dangerous and really serves no purpose in hockey. It is definitely not a head shot but it did have some...

Will Letang face suspension for hit on Johansson?

The Pittsburgh Penguins took down the Washington Capitals on Monday night to take a 2-1 lead in their second-round Stanley Cup Playoffs series, but the Pens might be without their best defenseman when they return to the ice for Game 3. Kris Letang was assessed a two-minute minor for interference late in the first period for a questionably late, dangerously high hit on Marcus Johansson...

ICYMI: Kris Letang got married

Just in case you were living under a rock… Kris Letang got married to his fiance Catherine Laflamme (excellent last name…she should keep it.  As a matter of fact…he should be Letang-Laflamme.  I’d buy that jersey.).
