Letang out tonight, but no concussion


Not to worry, Penguins fans – Kris Letang doesn’t have another concussion.

At least that’s what Pittsburgh GM Ray Shero told the Tribune-Review’s Dejan Kovacevic.

It’s not all goods news though. Letang does have a lower-body injury that will keep him out of tonight’s game versus the Islanders. His status is day-to-day, according to coach Dan Bylsma.

Letang knocked heads with New Jersey’s Dainius Zubrus Sunday, so when he wasn’t on the ice for practice this morning, eyebrows were raised and stomachs were churned. Pittsburgh’s top defenseman has already missed significant time with a concussion.

In other Penguins injury news, defenseman Ben Lovejoy had knee surgery and will miss 3-4 weeks.
