The Pittsburgh Penguins picked up a victory over the Dallas Stars on Wednesday night, but in the victory they lost Kris Letang. Eric Nystrom nailed Letang with a big hit in the game, knocking him out quite literally. On Thursday afternoon, we found out that Letang is suffering from concussion like symptoms, which is something Penguins fans are unfortunately all too used to hearing.

This would be Letang's second concussion of the season, so it's not certain he'll be able to make it back into the lineup. The Penguins are already without Sidney Crosby for concussion issues, and losing Letang for any length of time would be a huge blow as Pittsburgh has been on a role and looking to go deep in the playoffs once again.
