During his media presser, you witness a discouraged Kris Letang who is clearly devastated about the loss in which was a very important game for the struggling Penguins.

Kris Letang said what happened in the third started with him. "I made a mistake on 1-on-1, should not let that happen, and it gave them momentum.»

On Calgary's game-winning goal, Kris Letang said, "I just got the puck and somebody was jumping me. I think they were getting a 5-on-4, so I didn't see the pass."
