Description: Penguins defenseman Kris Letang played extremely well on Saturday against the Blue Jackets.
Insight: Letang scored two goals and finished plus-three. His first goal came on a beautiful two-on-one opportunity with the Penguins short handed.

Letang faked the forehand shot and quickly flipped a backhanded shot over Sergei Bobrovsky's glove. Letang's second goal tied the game at three with 10 seconds left in regulation. The defenseman also scored in the shoootout, but Pittsburgh lost, 4-3.
