08:24 AM ET 04.06 | When Penguins center Sidney Crosby was recovering from a concussion and related problems the past couple of seasons, there was a prescribed protocol he needed to follow to get back into the lineup. He progressed through light workouts, light skating, increased workouts, practice, practice with contact and, finally, games -- all while being monitored for symptoms. Things aren't so clear in the wake of jaw surgery last Saturday and ongoing dental repairs. "I don't know what the steps are in his recovery right now," Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said. Bylsma added, though, that one concern is infection, something that could set Crosby back. "You can't be having that," Bylsma said. Crosby missed his third game Friday night when the Penguins played the New York Rangers at Consol Energy Center. He has not skated or practiced, and there is no timetable for his return.

Bylsma doesn't know what the procedures are, but that's why they hire a bunch of doctors to advise the team.

I'm with you PA Dave, I don't think we are being told the severity of the injury. They said he's had a couple surgeries already and he might have a couple more. That doesn't sound good. The Crosby bashers who hated his mouth got their wish. Sounds like his mouth is going to be completely different now.

It's two points but it should be easier than this.....

Crosby, take your time...don't rush. Take till next season if you want.

Goodell gets an honorable mention for locker cams though. You gotta have a twisted brain to think that one up.

Yup, plenty of good talent on that team to hold down the fort.

Nothing good ever comes from watching a Porky's marathon.

I'm seriously panicking. This is either going to be a great week or an absolutely awful one.



Someone for Lupes to watch cartoons with?

Devils at home won't be easy (you're welcome Nardo) but the back-to-back with the Rags will be key.

Last place Avs. The new kid looked OK on 'D' but didn't make anybody get out of their seats.

"Sidney Crosby's recovery from broken jaw unclear"

Let's see if I can help and make it perfectly clear: Sidney Crosby WILL RECOVER from his broken jaw and he WILL PLAY hockey again.

Is that clear enough?

The Sens losing (snicker) to the Sabres must have helped.
