Letang Mystery Solved
Turns out Penguins defenseman Kris Letang has a pretty logical explanation for why his sweater wasn't tied down when he fought Travis Zajac of New Jersey last Friday.
After the Penguins' 3-2 overtime victory in Boston Saturday night, Letang acknowledged that until Friday night, he never tied down until that incident.
Letang's habit became a problem when Zajac pulled Letang's sweater over his head during their fight, pretty convincing evidence that Letang had violated the tie-down provision in Rule 47.13.
“I just didn’t do it,” Letang said. “I never have. Usually, the referee doesn’t say anything … unless the jersey would have gone over my head during the fight, then it would have been an advantage, but it just went over when I was going down on the ice.”
Letang's infraction calls for an automatic game misconduct, so the Penguins were forced to play most of their 2-1 overtime loss to the Devils with just five defensemen.
Consequently, Letang said, he plans to avoid any future wardrobe malfunctions.
“It’s tied down inside my pants now,” he said.
