Penguins' Crosby has broken jaw; out indefinitely

Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby is out indefinitely after undergoing surgery to repair a broken jaw.

The NHL’s top scorer (15 goals, 41 assists) underwent surgery Saturday after being hit in the mouth with a slap shot in Pittsburgh’s 2-0 win over the Islanders. He also lost several teeth.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review is reporting that Crosby is currently not showing signs of concussion symptoms and should be able to return for the playoffs.

The Penguins are riding a 15-game winning streak (5-9-1 over/under) into Tuesday’s home game with the Sabres. Pittsburgh then begins a home-and-home series with the Rangers beginning Wednesday.

At Bet365, which had the Penguins at +300 to win the Stanley Cup, has taken the prop off the board. At Sports Interaction, the Penguins are still the favorite to win Lord Stanley at +300.
