NHL to hold Letang hearing on boarding call
 
Pittsburgh Penguin defenseman Kris Letang will face a Department of Player Safety hearing on Tuesday to discuss the boarding penalty he was assessed at the 13:08 mark of the third period of Monday night's game against the Jets in Winnipeg.

The Jets won the game, 2-1, for the franchise's first win since relocating to Winnipeg before the start of the 2011-12 season.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
