Kris Letang is hoping for a much better second half after registering only 28 points in 48 games.
The Penguins' All-Star defenseman has struggled by his own admission so far this season. Letang attributes some of his problems to a slower recovery from off-season surgery, to deal with a herniated disc in his neck, than he expected. "It's me trying to get back into it after eight months without playing hockey," Letang said. "It's not trying to find a way how to play. It's obviously something that's in the back of my mind. I want to play over 75 games a year now. It's just trying to get back into the rhythm, try to maintain stability. "I didn't think it was going to be as hard as it's been. It's tough. Eight months without playing, and I got right back into it." Look for Letang to finish strongly as the Penguins go into their stretch drive. Jan 27 - 10:38 AM
