Penguins defenseman Kris Letang returned to the lineup Wednesday after mi sing Sundays game as a precaution only to take a dangerous hit from behind from Maple Leafs winger Leo Komarov. Letang was able to return to the game, and Komarov was handed a minor for O J Howard Jersey boarding. Penguins defenseman Kris Letang has a history of head injuries and has mi sed games as recently as Sunday out of concern for his health, and he was forced to leave Wednesdays game for a short time after taking a dangerous hit from behind from Maple Leafs winger Leo Komarov.Letang was chasing a puck back into the Pittsburgh zone with le s than five minutes remaining in the first period of Wednesdays game after Torontos Nazem Kadri had shot wide of the net. As Letang went to play the puck, he stopped a few feet short of the boards behind Roberto Aguayo Jersey the Pittsburgh net as Komarov approached from behind. As the puck reached Letang, he was shoved from behind and shoulder first into the boards by Komarov:Thankfully, Letang was able to get back to his feet, but Penguinscoach Mike Sullivan told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazettes Seth Rorabaugh that Letang was Gerald McCoy Jersey ordered to the dre sing room for evaluation after taking the hit from Komarov. That makes sense considering Letang has a history of head injuries and, as mentioned, mi sed Sundays game after taking a jolt to the head this past Saturday against the Minnesota Wild.As for Komarov, he was i sued a minor penalty for boarding, even though it initially looked as though the hit would end Chris Conte Jersey his night. The hit by Komarov was reckle s and could have seriously injured Letang, but theres been no indication yet that the league will be looking into the hit further.If the league does choose to suspend Komarov, however, it would be his first run-in with the league. Komarov has never been fined or suspended, and hasnt even been trotting to the box on a consistent basis: in 140 career games, he has 54 penalty minutes.
