PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — There’s some good news for the Penguins ahead of their big game tonight against Atlantic Division rivals, the New York Rangers.

According to the Penguins website, head coach Dan Bylsma said defenseman Kris Letang will return to the lineup.

Letang has been out since late November when he suffered a concussion and broken nose in a game against the Montreal Canadians. He was hit by the Montreal’s Max Pacioretty.

Letang participated in his first full-team practice on Tuesday.

Then, on Wednesday after practicing for the second-straight day, said he was ready to play.

“I know I’m ready to go,” he said. “I’ve been resting. I’ve been doing some treatment with different guys and I’m 100 percent confident. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be on the ice.”

The Pens and Rangers face off at Madison Square Garden at 7 p.m.
