In other injury news, Penguins' defenceman Paul Martin (upper body) will have surgery on Sunday and is expected to miss about six weeks.

Just when Martin starts clicking consistently...

I will go against my thought on the Murray trade. Thank goodness Shero traded for Doug Murray. Even if he doesn't score, he's a healthy body. Sure hope Letang will be back in the lineup soon. Does this mean Bortuzzo gets called up?

Letang will be another week or two, broken toe.

Depres was in the lineup for Martin today, so they'll probably just stick with him.

It sucks that Martin got injured, but our defense really hasn't missed a step. Bylsma was talking about dressing 7 defensemen anyway, because they are so stacked right now. I'm not too concerned.

Thanks.

I see that Despres is the fill-in for Martin. I trust him in this position. Engellend also played today for Letang. I believe he's been a healthy scratch, so it's good to see some of these guys get playing time. With the injuries it may be valuable experience for the playoffs, and the rest of the final month of the regular season.

AS long as it's just his teeth - we should be OK

Crosby lost several teeth after a sailing puck off the stick blade of defenseman Brooks Orpik caught him flush early in the first period. He crumpled to the ice, left with a blood-stained white towel pressed covering his lips and was scheduled for oral surgery later Saturday, coach Dan Bylsma said.

There were no signs of concussion symptoms, and Crosby's injury was mostly a teeth issue, multiple sources said.

There was no immediate word on any additional injuries -- facial fractures or a concussion, for example -- although fixing his teeth got priority over examinations for any other medical concerns.

Remaining in the hospital overnight was a possibility, although a close acquaintance said, "He will be OK."

Crosby out indefinitely after surgery on broken jaw
Sunday, 03.31.2013 / 2:11 PM / News
NHL.com

Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby is out indefinitely after having surgery for a broken jaw, the team announced via Twitter on Sunday.

Crosby was injured on his first shift against the New York Islanders on Saturday when defenseman Brooks Orpik fired a slap shot that changed direction and caught Crosby just under the visor.

Crosby was down for several seconds but skated off under his own power accompanied by team training staff. He went to the Penguins locker room and did not return to the game, won by Pittsburgh 2-0 for the team's 15th straight victory.

The Penguins' next two games are Tuesday at home against the Buffalo Sabres and Wednesday on the road against the New York Rangers. The Penguins are two wins shy of tying the NHL record for consecutive wins, set by the 1992-93 Penguins.

Hopefully it's just a couple weeks and then a full face mask or cage.

Well, I'm not happy to hear Sid is out indefinitely with a broken jaw. It's really unfortunate for him, given all the injuries he has dealt with. And just when the Penguins have all the players acquired in trades ready to play, the injury bug strikes. SMH.

The good news, and more important news, IMO, is that Sid will be healthy for the playoffs. I think Pittsburgh is in great shape at the moment for the postseason as well as locking up home ice. The chances of winning the division are in our favor. Keep winning and that will happen. Not so sure about the President's Trophy, but that might not be important.

I think this team is so talented with all of its players that it will find a way to continue winning in the final month of the season. I'm not worried. Yeah it sucks not to have Sid in the lineup, but other guys will step up and contribute. I know it.
