Penguins defensemen Letang, Michalek return home
NEW YORK (AP)
Letang broke his nose Saturday in Montreal when he was struck by Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty, who was suspended three games for the hit. The defenseman practiced Monday and skated Tuesday morning in New York, but said he had trouble breathing.
Michalek also was injured against Montreal. He left the game in the third period with an undisclosed injury, but has since practiced. Michalek had played in four straight games after sitting out 10 because of a broken finger.
