Wow, that should be interesting. I guess he does have some fuel left in the tank. :lol:

This could be a much-needed boost, now that Wilkes-Barre has prevented the sweep by winning game 4.

Cool! I have tickets to game 5 @ Hershey. Letang will help shut down those Bears! Also to score on PP hopefully. I am in a no win situation here though, I am a Penguins fan but live just outside Hershey. Who to root for? I usually end up cheering for both. Ah, I miss the days of the Tie Except for playoffs. HAHA

Go Baby Pens!!!

After being down 3-0, there's not much to lose, so I hope they just throw everything they got at the Bears.

Last game saw a change in their game plan. They were much more aggressive. They had been playing aggressive, getting the first goal, and then playing defense while waiting for Hershey to make a mistake that never happened.

There was a noticeable change to a style where the defensemen help bring the puck up to beat Hershey's neutral-zone defense and the Pens played much more physical when they did get the puck in the offensive zone. If that's the style that they need to play, Letang will be a great help.

This is intriguing. If they can win another game, things may actually become interesting... coming home with all the momentum.

One thing they do have in their favor is that the lst time I stuck a fork in a team, it was the Red Sox who came back from 3-0 to ebat the Yankees and went on to win the world series. :lol:

Will these games count against his contract status? I think he only played 8 games at the beginning of the season and couldn't pass 10.

No, those games had to be NHL games to count against his contract.

He is no longer eligible for the QMJHL so it is either Pittsburgh or Wilkes-Barre for him now.

WBS is going to be out fairly shortly anyway so it really doesn't matter.

A quick update...

Letang is mostly being used on the PP, has an assist where he fired a point shot and Joe Jensen put in the rebound, and the Pens are leading 6-5 in the 3rd.

In a side note, G Nolan Schaefer has an assist on a Filewich goal.

Letang has 1 assist but he could easily have 2. He made a sick pass to Dupont that ended up deflecting off of MAP's stick or else Letang would have the assist.

For you Letang fans, my contact at the WBS team store tells me that they will be posting all of the playoff jerseys on ebay after the season.

Letang will have a game-worn black away jersey from tonight's game and at least a game-issued, possibly game-worn pending tonight's game, home white jersey for sale.

He is wearing his normal #58.
