Game Day Preseason Pens vs Red Wings 9/21/11

Kris Letang

On how he feels about going into the first pre-season game:
It’s quick, but we had the chance to have regular scrimmages and the Black and Gold Game, so everybody got a bit of good timing back. It will be a real good first test and a chance for the players.

On what it is going to feel like playing again:
When you don’t play for a long time like this, it’s about timing on the ice and where the players are standing. Your vision, your timing – everything needs to be there and ready for the season.

On the younger players:
It’s a training camp; everybody wants to make an impression. It’s important to go out there and play and not think too much.

On the game being against Detroit tonight:
They’re a great team every year. It’s a great organization, so it’s always fun to play against them.

On being considered one of the “older guys” at camp:
No, I don’t think so. I’m one of the youngest here. There’s new guys and guys who have been here 5, 6 years. I’m here to help and it’s fun playing with all these guys and it’s going to be a good time.

On working on and improving the power play:
It’s a new setup; we’ve got new players. I think playing tonight will work on everything we talked about. There are a lot of players to work on the penalty kill. There are some things that we would love to change and some things we have to work on.
