Defenseman Kris Letang and forward Patric Hornqvist did not participate in the Penguins practice Sunday.

According to head coach Mike Johnston, Hornqvist is expected to miss “a few weeks” with a lower body injury.

Letang left the Penguins 3-0 loss to the Capitals late in the third period Saturday after blocking a shot from Alex Ovechkin.

“Letang is basically a bruise. We just let it settle down today and I expect he’ll skate in the morning skate tomorrow,” said Johnston. “I don’t know for sure if (Letang) will play … he’ll get a skate tomorrow and see how he is.”

Pittsburgh visits the New Jersey Devils on Monday night.
