Penguins defensemen Kris Letang and Zbynek Michalek will be returning to Pittsburgh for further evaluation of medical issues.
That means defensemen Robert Bortuzzo and Alexandre Picard, both of whom were recalled from Wilkes-Barre this afternoon, figure to be in the Penguins’ lineup against the New York Rangers tonight.
Letang has a broken nose and might be suffering other problems after taking a blindside hit in the face from Montreal’s Max Pacioretty Saturday.
There is no word on the nature of Michalek’s problem, although he recently missed 10 games because of a broken finger and did leave the Montreal game early.
