Brief snippet about Letang

Letang welcomes Orpik

It was pretty obvious that the Penguins were happy to have defenseman Brooks Orpik, who had missed 13 games because of a broken finger, back in the lineup for their 2-1 shootout victory Sunday against Florida.

Odds are Kris Letang was more pleased about it than any of his teammates, though.

He and Orpik are defense partners, and Orpik's stay-at-home style gives Letang the latitude to get involved in the offense.

"We read each other really well," Letang said. "He talks a lot on the ice, so that helps me."
