Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang reportedly sustained a broken toe on Tuesday in his team's victory over the Montreal Canadiens at Consol Energy Center.
Letang, the top-scoring defenseman in the National Hockey League, was in the lineup on Tuesday for the first time in four games. He was taken off the injured reserve list Tuesday afternoon after missing time because of a lower-body injury.
He logged more than 24 minutes in Pittsburgh's 1-0 win, its 13th in a row, but told RDS after the game that he was not 100 percent after the first period. According to TSN, the reason he wasn't at full strength was because he has sustained a broken toe.
If the Penguins opt to put Letang back on injured reserve, Simon Despres would be his likely replacement in the lineup.
Additionally, goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury is dealing with a sore neck. Fleury made 25 saves over the first two periods against the Canadiens on Tuesday, but did not play in the third because of an undisclosed injury. Tomas Vokoun made 12 saves in relief to complete the shutout.
