Fleury Status Still In The Air; Letang Out 7-10 Days


It is still unclear as to what’s wrong with Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury.

After leaving the game Tuesday night, it was speculated Fleury had sustained a head injury when his own teammate Tyler Kennedy accidentally crashed into him with roughly 50 minutes left in the second period.

Head Coach Dan Bylsma had this to say regarding Fleury’s situation – according to Sam Kasan of the Pens’ website:

“Marc-Andre Fleury is continuing to be evaluated today, I don’t have any more information for you in that regard. We’ll have more information (Thursday) morning.”

Bylsma also noted that he wouldn’t rule Fleury out as far as backing up Tomas Vokoun for Thursday’s game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Pens defenseman Kris Letang was believed to have re-aggravated his groin injury, as well as to have suffered a broken a toe, but the organization is now saying that he will be out the next 7-10 days due to his newest injury (possible broken toe) and not his groin – per Kasan.

It was speculated that Letang broke his toe, but now the problem is officially being called a separate lower-body injury.

Pittsburgh won’t reveal specifically what’s ailing Letang, so fans will just have to hope the issue isn’t too severe.
