Penguins’ Crosby remains uncertain for playoff opener

CANONSBURG, Pa. — Penguins star Sidney Crosby practiced Monday but his status remains uncertain for Wednesday’s playoff opener against the New York Islanders.

Crosby hasn’t played since breaking his jaw a month ago, missing Pittsburgh’s final 12 games of the regular season. He underwent dental procedures and was cleared to return to noncontact drills last week. Crosby says he’ll see doctors again Tuesday and will not play until he is given clearance.

The Penguins thrived in his absence, going 8-4 without their captain while locking up the top seed in the Eastern Conference.

Crosby still finished tied for third in the NHL in scoring despite missing a quarter of the season. He had 15 goals and 41 assists in 36 games.
