Analysis: The Penguins turned the game into a runaway with three unanswered goals on the man advantage in the second period, with Kris Letang setting up David Perron and Evgeni Malkin on scores. Letang has been an asset on the power play all season, where his 21 assists rank third in the league.

Pens' Letang Moves To Top Of Class

News: Kris Letang picked up an assist Sunday, giving him 47 points in 54 games and moving him into a tie with Calgary's Mark Giordano for the most points by a defenseman.
Analysis: Fantasy owners have benefited from Kris Letang's relative good health in 2014-15 -- he's missed only six of Pittsburgh's first 60 contests. The eighth-year veteran is only three points away from matching his career high of 50. Letang has put himself in the middle of the Norris Trophy talk with eight weeks remaining in the regular season.

Pens' Letang Takes Part In Practice Wednesday

News: Kris Letang (undisclosed) was on the ice for Wednesday's practice, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: Kris Letang was temporarily forced out of action in Wednesday's loss to the Capitals when Alex Ovechkin clubbed the defenseman in the foot with his stick. Based on Letang's participation in practice Wednesday, it would seem he escaped the game without much concern about the injury, which should enable him to suit up Thursday against the Blue Jackets.

Letang Helps But Pens Still Lose Tuesday

News: Kris Letang registered his 35th assist Tuesday, giving him 45 points in 51 games, but also had an injury scare.
Analysis: He took an Alexander Ovechkin slash to his skate, crashing into the end boards. After missing a couple shifts, the defender returned to finish the game. Kris Letang has a history of concussions, so it's possible symptoms propagate in the next couple days.

Analysis: Kris Letang has collected a point on over half of Pittsburgh's goals in the last 14 games, with 19 points on 37 goals. He continues to make a case for the Norris Trophy, though he's gone pointless on the power play over the last six games (13 chances) in February.

Letang Contributes Two Points To Pens' Win

News: Kris Letang scored the game-opening goal 1:01 into the first period and added an assist Thursday in a 5-4 shootout win over Ottawa.
Analysis: The goal was his first in nearly a month, as he'd last tallied Jan. 13 against Minnesota. But despite the lack of pucks in nets, he's been plenty productive points-wise, having accumulated a whopping 12 points in his last nine games.

News: Kris Letang, who missed part of Friday's game after taking a deflected puck to his face, tallied an assist against Calgary.

Pens' Letang Continues Assists Assault Wednesday

News: Kris Letang collected a helper Wednesday, giving him assists on 13 of Pittsburgh's last 18 goals.
Analysis: The blueliner has seven points (2A, 5A) in seven games against Calgary, Pittsburgh's next opponent Friday. He'll go up against the Flames' Mark Giordano, who leads all NHL defenders with 43 points in 52 games. Kris Letang sits second in the league with 40 points in 45 tilts.

Pens' Letang Celebrates Stroke Anniversary In Styl

News: Kris Letang tallied two helpers Friday -- including one on the power play -- giving him assists on each of Pittsburgh's last seven goals.
Analysis: The defender, who rung one shot off the post Friday, has scored a goal and 13 assists in his last eight contests. He's also closing in on a point per game pace with 39 points (9G, 30A) in 43 games. After suffering a stroke nearly a year ago to today's date, Kris Letang has made an amazing recover, providing fantasy owners with elite production as a defenseman.

Pens' Letang Returns With Five-Assist Gem

News: Kris Letang, who'd been questionable for Tuesday's game with a head injury, slotted into the lineup and assisted on all five Pittsburgh goals, adding a plus-2 rating and two PIM in a victory over the Jets.
Analysis: So it seems like he's feeling alright. Kris Letang had sat out the Pens' final game before the break, but it looks like that's all the time he needed to get over the hit he took a week ago Tuesday.

Pens' Letang Set To Play Tuesday

News: Kris Letang (head) took the ice for pregame warmups and is listed as a member of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Jets.
Analysis: Kris Letang was termed a game-time decision Tuesday after missing the Pens' final contest before the All-Star break with a probable head injury. However, after practicing Monday and Tuesday without incident, he'll slot back into the lineup. Fantasy owners should have no qualms about keeping Letang active; with 32 points in 40 games, he's been one of the most productive blueliners in the NHL this season despite an assortment of minor injuries.

Penguins' Letang: Game-Time Call Tuesday

News: Kris Letang (head) is a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Jets.
Analysis: We'll continue to track Kris Letang's status as Tuesday's game approaches, but for his part, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review suggests that it "sounds quite likely" that Letang will play Tuesday.

Pens' Letang Optimistic For Tuesday Return

News: Kris Letang (head) believes he will return to the lineup Tuesday against the Jets, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: Kris Letang was a full participant in practice Monday, and appears to be clear of the symptoms that held him out of last Wednesday's game against the Blackhawks. Assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks, it appears fair to believe he will dress for Tuesday's contest, but the team should confirm his status one way or another before it begins.

Penguins Plan To Be Cautious With Letang

News: Kris Letang -- who absorbed a hard hit from Zac Rinaldo of the Flyers on Tuesday -- has undergone concussion tests, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: While the Penguins have not confirmed whether or not Kris Letang is concussed, the reports suggests that apparently the blueliner has displayed signs of having suffered a concussion. In any case, Letang's status for the Penguins' Jan. 27 contest is unclear, with GM Rutherford noting "we'll be real cautious with this."

Pens' Letang (Head) Likely Out Wednesday

News: Kris Letang was not on the ice for pregame warmups Wednesday, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Kris Letang also was not listed on the Penguins' defensive pairings in advance of their showdown with the Blackhawks. It looks as if Robert Bortuzzo will take his place on the first pairing, with Robert Scuderi and Derrick Pouliot also in line to see extra work.

Pens' Letang Not On Ice For Pre-Game Skate

News: Kris Letang (head) was not spotted taking the pre-game skate against the Blackhawks on Wednesday.
Analysis: It would appear as though the Pens will play it safe and give their star defender a full week off to recover from Zac Rinaldo's hit Tuesday.

Pens' Letang (Head) A Game-Time Decision Wednesday

News: Coach Mike Johnston said Kris Letang (head) would be a game-time decision for Wednesday's game against the Blackhawks, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. "Letang is still going through tests," Johnston said. "He still has a couple tests to be cleared."
Analysis: Kris Letang created some optimism about his availability by taking part in Wednesday's optional morning skate, but the Penguins will wait until the afternoon to reassess his health. It wouldn't be surprising if Letang ended up being scratched for precautionary reasons if nothing else, as his history of concussions and the promise of rest during the upcoming All-Star break could make the Penguins reluctant to use him a day after he took a brutal hit to the head from the Flyers' Zac Rinaldo. The Penguins already went ahead and called up defenseman Derrick Pouliot from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in the event Letang can't play Wednesday.

Pens' Letang (Head) Skates Wednesday

News: Kris Letang (head) was on the ice for Wednesday's optional skate.
Analysis: This is extremely good news for the Penguins, as it looked like Kris Letang, who suffered two concussions in the 2011-12 season, might have picked up another long-term head injury after he was boarded into the glass by the Flyers' Zac Rinaldo on Tuesday. After visiting with doctors Wednesday morning, it looks like Letang was cleared to resume activities, but that doesn't necessarily mean he'll suit up during the Pens' game later in the evening against the Blackhawks. Expect coach Mike Johnston to provide an update on Letang's status when he meets with the media prior to the game.

Pens Will Know More Wednesday About Letang

News: Pens coach Mike Johnston said the team will have further information regarding Kris Letang following Wednesday's gameday skate.
Analysis: Johnston stated that Kris Letang underwent standard concussion protocol Tuesday, but the coach was also quick to point out that there has been no confirmation of a concussion. Fantasy owners will have to wait until late Wednesday morning before gleaning further information on the star blueliner.

Pens' Letang Leaves Tuesday's Tilt Early

News: Kris Letang left Tuesday's game with an undisclosed injury after being boarded by the Flyers' Zac Rinaldo.
Analysis: Kris Letang is riding a four-game point streak with one goal and six assists. Pittsburgh plays just one time in the next six days, thanks to the All-Star break, and fantasy owners might just dodge a bullet. The Penguins will likely update Letang's status for Wednesday's tilt with the Blackhawks after Tuesday's game, or following their gameday skate.

Assists Piling Up For Pens' Letang

News: Kris Letang added two more assists to his ledger in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: Kris Letang went an ugly minus-3 in the blowout loss, but fantasy owners will happily dismiss that due to the blueliner's scoring production of late. He's provided multiple points in three consecutive games and has garnered at least one power-play point in four straight contests.

Letang Points Twice For Pens

News: Kris Letang notched a goal, a power-play assist and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 7-2 shellacking of the Wild.
Analysis: Yeah, your team putting up seven goals makes that plus-minus easier to come by. Kris Letang continues to post some of the best numbers on the blue line, with the biggest key being relatively strong health so far in this campaign.

Pens' Letang (Undisclosed) Returns To Practice

News: Kris Letang (undisclosed) was back at practice Friday.
Analysis: The Penguins characterized Kris Letang's absence from Thursday's practice as a maintenance day, but his return to activity suggests he's not in danger of missing Saturday's game against the Canadiens.

Pens' Letang (Undisclosed) Held Out Of Practice

News: Kris Letang missed practice Thursday due to an undisclosed injury, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Kris Letang appeared to be hurting after blocking a few shots Wednesday night, so the Penguins will rest him for practice with the hope that it offer the blueliner enough recovery time in advance of Saturday's game in Montreal. The 28-year-old has ranked among the top fantasy defensemen this season, tallying eight goals, 17 assists and a plus-4 rating over 35 games.
