Pens Points: Hobbling Into a Hurricane

Injuries have piled up, Conor Sheary seems to be out of a slump, and trading Letang may do more harm than good. All this and more in today’s Pens Points!

NHL: Carolina Hurricanes at Pittsburgh Penguins Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight, the Penguins have another divisional game on tap when they travel to Raleigh to battle with the Carolina Hurricanes. Before we get another glimpse of Jordan Staal and company...

Here are your Pens Points for this Friday morning...

If you look up the word “injury” in the dictionary, a picture of the Penguins logo pops up. Yesterday, the Penguins recalled Frank Corrado. [Penguins] Right after that, they put Bryan Rust, Kris Letang, and Chad Ruhwedel on IR and called up three more AHLers. [Penguins] *(None of whom are named Daniel Sprong)

The talk of trading Kris Letang has run rampant all throughout Pittsburgh and the hockey community. But as our own Hooks Orpik shows us, it may not end well for the Penguins if they pull that trigger. [Pensburgh]

A big talking point after the game on Wednesday was how that win against the Blue Jackets felt like the most complete game of the season. The Penguins will certainly be looking to build off of this win moving forward. [Trib Live]

Conor Sheary recently broke out of a scoring slump. And he really wasn't even trying. [Post-Gazette]
