Letang Suspended One Game

The Penguins blueliner will miss Game 4

Kris Letang has been suspended for one game for interference against Marcus Johansson. Here's the Department of Player Safety's video:

The lack of (significant) injury on the play spared Letang a stiffer punishment, which, frankly, is misguided. But it is what it is and the Caps will have a golden opportunity to even this series up tomorrow night. And if they can't do that against a Pens blueline without Letang (and presumably Olli Maatta), they probably aren't the team we'd thought they were.
