Not to worry, Penguins fans – Kris Letang doesn’t have another concussion.

At least that’s what Pittsburgh GM Ray Shero told the Tribune-Review’s Dejan Kovacevic.

It’s not all goods news though. Letang does have a lower-body injury that will keep him out of tonight’s game versus the Islanders. His status is day-to-day, according to coach Dan Bylsma.

Letang knocked heads with New Jersey’s Dainius Zubrus Sunday, so when he wasn’t on the ice for practice this morning, eyebrows were raised and stomachs were churned. Pittsburgh’s top defenseman has already missed significant time with a concussion.

In other Penguins injury news, defenseman Ben Lovejoy had knee surgery and will miss 3-4 weeks.

    OK- Letang -miss you on the ice tonight ! It will be a big crazy game which Pens win. I want Pens and Cannucks to play the Stanley cup game.

      Call me crazy, but I missed the part where they switched from playing the Stanley Cup Series to just the Stanley Cup Game! Is that gonna be like the Super Bowl then?? Just one and done, huh? Wow. Also, it’d be better if they played the Canucks.

    he actually found a single flake of dandruff so he took some days off to figure out how to get the silkiness back.
