How productive has Kris Letang's postseason been thus far? He's roughly one good series away from setting a franchise record.

Through two rounds, Letang has 16 points, second-most for a single postseason in franchise history among defenseman. The only blueliner who scored more points for the Penguins in a postseason is hall-of-famer Larry Murphy.
