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

You get the right whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
