PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby skated without a jaw protector during the team’s practice Sunday morning.

According to KDKA-TV’s Bob Pompeani, this is the first time Crosby had skated without the extra protection since a deflected puck broke his jaw on March 30.

Brooks Orpik’s slap shot from the blue line deflected off a New York Islander and up into Crosby’s jaw under two minutes into the game.

Crosby would miss the final 12 regular season and Game 1 of the team’s first round matchup against the New York islanders.

Since returning to the lineup, Crosby has racked up seven goals and eight assists to help the Penguins reach the Eastern Conference Finals.
