Letang Game Day interview 12-14-10

This picture is from today's practice from what the Pens website says. Enjoy!!!

On if he’ll take the time to sit down and really watch Wednesday’s premiere:
I’m interested to see what it’s going to look like on the screen. I’m wondering how it’s going to come out, and if I do anything stupid on there. There’s a lot of people that are going to watch, so I want to see it.

On if he’s curious to see what goes on in Washington:
Yeah, I want to see what they do in other places. I’ve only played in Pittsburgh in my career, so I want to know how it happens in other dressing rooms.

On if they can keep the streak rolling against the Flyers:
It’s going to be a tough game. They’re playing really well, they’re only one point behind us. It’s a game for first place. It’s going to be like a playoff game. They don’t like us, we don’t like them, so it’s going to be a good game.

On if it’s more intense with the rivalry:
Yeah, the rivalry is really important. It’s really big here. I think it’s just going to bring more hype to the game, the fact that we’re playing for first place.

On how the Penguins’ playoff run last season is helping him now:
Every year after the playoffs, I’ve sat down with the coaches, and they really want me to bring the type of game that I bring (to the playoffs). The physical play, playing hard in my zone, not being afraid to shoot. In the playoffs, you score a lot of scrappy goals. You go to the front (of the net), you tip one, it goes off a shinpad. They want me to play like that, and I think I came with that mentality this year.

  1. Tonight's game was a good one with Evgeni Malkin back in the lineup. Too bad he took that bad that 3rd pd. penalty. Looks like this season is going to go down to the wire.

    Can't wait till the Pens take it out on the Caps!
