Video: Letang Swings at Stalberg's Neck; No Call Made

Kris Letang took a high swing at Viktor Stalberg, and no penalty was called on the Penguin. About 7:30 into the third period of game three, Kris Letang got away with an egregious whack to the neck/chin of Viktor Stalberg. This came three minutes after the Penguins had just gone up 2-1, and given the fact that Stalberg was bleeding, would have given the Rangers a 4-minute power play. The Penguins went on to win game three and take a 2-1 series lead. Game four is scheduled for 7:00 pm on April 21st.
