Video: Letang leaves game with lower-body injury

14 Comments

Pittsburgh was able to come away with their ninth straight win but it wasn’t totally painless.

Star defenseman Kris Letang left the game in the first period with an injury and did not return to action. The team reported it was a lower-body injury and Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports he will be further evaluated.

The last we saw of Letang in the game came on a play around the Penguins net that saw Boston’s Brad Marchand pursuing him. At first it appeared Marchand may have caught him on the wrist with his stick, but that’s not the case in spite of Letang looking pained as he headed off.

Check out our video of the play and see if you can figure out what happened.
