Defenseman Kris Letang scored twice in the Penguins' 3-2 shootout win against the Chicago Blackhawks in an NHL exhibition game at Consol Energy Center on Monday.

Letang's late power-play goal capped a comeback from a 2-0 deficit.

The two MVPs of the Blackhawks 2010 and 2013 title teams — center Jonathan Toews and winger Patrick Kane — did not play.

Winger Bryan Bickell scored twice on Penguins goalie Jeff Zatkoff, who made 30 saves.

Zatkoff was perfect on two shootout attempts.
