Kris Letang Has A Concussion

via Sam Kasan of the Penguins' website,

Head coach Mike Johnston had a few updates on the game...

  • Johnston confirmed that defenseman Kris Letang has a concussion. He's been released from the hospital, but will not be in the lineup tonight.
  • Johnston said the team will go with five defensemen for the game and, if need be, Winnik could drop back to defense if needed.
  • Perron is doubtful for the game and "probably out" per Johnston. He missed Saturday's 3-2 win against Arizona with an illness.




Below, watch the hit on Letang who tumbled into the end boards...

Are you serious about head injuries and concussions, Gary?

Suspend Doan for the rest of the year.

That puck was going the other way a good 3 to 4 seconds before Doan got to Letang. Doan even changed his direct well after the puck was gone to hit Letang who was defenseless. I hate this supposed ‘good ol’ power forward’ Don Cherry fanboy club member.

The play was done.  There was no more reason for Doanbag to make that hit.
