    Default Letang Out for 2 Weeks

    BOSTON -- The Penguins announced that defenseman Kris Letang will be sidelined for two weeks after suffering a shoulder contusion against the San Jose Sharks last Saturday.

    Letang left the game halfway through the first period and did not return. On Sunday, Letang joined his teammates as they flew from San Jose to Boston. After arriving in Boston, he boarded his own flight headed to Pittsburgh so that he could meet with team doctors Monday.

    Letang has seven points (1G-6A) through 17 games this season and averages 21:21 minutes of ice time per game, the fourth highest total on the team.

    Letang's injury is the latest setback for a Penguins team that has been decimated by injuries. Pittsburgh is missing over a fourth of its lineup due to injuries to Sergei Gonchar (broken left wrist), Evgeni Malkin (shoulder strain), Max Talbot (shoulder) and Tyler Kennedy (undisclosed).

    Dang. At this point it might be better to just switch personnel with the Baby Pens for a while. Kinda tough for the team to find any chemistry as pieced together as they are.

    I'm just happy it's "weeks" and not months. That's about the only positive I can come away with from these injuries.

    And the news just keeps getting worse.. With Brooks out now as well the pairings are about as thin as they can get.

    If not we can call up the WBS team...give all our other regulars the night off for a couple weeks...go into hibernation and wake up in 3 weeks and it will all be over.
