PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Penguins likely will have one of their two injured stars back in the lineup when they face the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night. The Penguins have activated defenseman Kris Letang from injured reserve and sent defenseman Simon Despres to the American Hockey League to open a roster spot. Letang had missed the previous three games with a lower-body injury. Letang leads all NHL defensemen with 28 points in 27 games.
