PITTSBURGH — Penguins defenseman Kris Letang says he is good to go for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals against San Jose despite not skating the past two days.
Letang brushed off any injury concerns, while center Nick Bonino also gave the thumbs up for the series opener after blocking a shot in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals. Letang has averaged 28:46 minutes a game for the Penguins during the playoffs.
Letang says Burns is an unbelievable defenseman. Burns’ 20 points lead all defensemen in the playoffs.
