Penguins captain Sidney Crosby out of hospital

- Associated Press - Tuesday, April 2, 2013

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby is out of the hospital after breaking his jaw Saturday.

The Penguins confirmed on their Twitter account Tuesday that Crosby had been released a day earlier. He will be out of the lineup indefinitely after undergoing surgery.

Crosby was hurt in the first period of the Penguins' 2-0 win over the New York Islanders when he was struck in the mouth by a puck from a deflected shot.

The Eastern Conference-leading Penguins, with 15 straight wins, play their first game without Crosby on Tuesday night at home against Buffalo.
