Letang day-to-day with lower-body injury
The Pittsburgh Penguins announced today that defenseman Kris Letang will not play Tuesday against the New York Islanders and is day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

Letang, who has missed time twice this season due to concussion-like symptoms, collided with New Jersey's Dainius Zubrus during Sunday's game. He returned, however, and played more than 22 minutes.

According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Letang is not suffering from any concussion-related issues.

The Penguins, who clinched a playoff spot last week, have seven games left in the regular season.
