Kris Letang (lower body) felt good after Tuesday's practice and is getting close to returning to the lineup.

"It was the first time I've practiced with the team (since the injury), so I had a chance to battle in the corner," he said. "I stayed later to do extra. It felt pretty good." Letang said he originally sustained the injury Feb. 3 in Washington, but he still played two nights later against the New York Islanders. He hasn't been ruled out of playing Wednesday night. His status will likely be determined after the morning skate.
