LACING ON skates is going to have to wait. At this point, Sidney Crosby would settle for a meal that didn't require a straw. The Pittsburgh Penguins star and his surgically repaired mouth remain on a liquid diet as he recovers from a broken jaw sustained in a win over the New York Islanders on March 30. The NHL's leading scorer remains sidelined indefinitely and has not been cleared to return to practice. Crosby - sporting a handful of new teeth - spoke on Monday for the first time since taking a puck to the face in the first period against the Islanders when a slap shot from teammate Brooks Orpik was redirected at Crosby's face.

SIDNEY CROSBY has a broken jaw and is out indefinitely after being hit in the mouth with a puck during a win against the New York Islanders on Saturday. The Pittsburgh Penguins said on the team website Sunday that Crosby had surgery Saturday night, and there will be an update on his status later in the week. Crosby, the NHL's leading scorer, was struck in the face during the first period of the Penguins' 2-0 win. Slow-motion replays showed multiple teeth flying out of his mouth after the puck struck him during his first shift.

Despite losing their captain, the Pittsburgh Penguins found a way to finish the month unbeaten. The Pens welcomed star forward Jarome Iginla, but lost Sidney Crosby early in the first period after he was hit in the mouth by a puck. Still, the Penguins managed to overcome the injury to Crosby on Saturday for their 15th straight victory as Matt Cooke and James Neal scored third-period goals during a 2-0 victory against the New York Islanders. Crosby skated off the ice with a towel covering his mouth after a slap shot by teammate Brooks Orpik deflected off a stick and hit the NHL scoring leader in the face 1 minute, 28 seconds into the game.

The Pittsburgh Penguins, a.k.a. Team Sizzle, will take an 11-game winning streak into the Wells Fargo Center for Sunday's 12:30 p.m. contest against the Flyers. Sidney Crosby and Kris Letang have returned from injuries, bolstering the Penguins' already-dynamic lineup. "They seem to be rolling through the league right now, so isn't that exciting?" coach Peter Laviolette said after the Flyers' 3-2 shootout loss in Boston on Saturday. "Coming into our building. Life's good.

Sidney Crosby will appear in his 413th National Hockey League game Monday night at Consol Energy Center. Might not seem like it, though. Not to what could be the most-energized crowd in the young arena's history. And certainly not to Crosby, who has not participated in one since being diagnosed with a concussion Jan. 6. For that reason, Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said Sunday that Crosby figures to experience the emotions and excitement of a guy competing at this level for the first time.

It was supposed to be the grand unveiling of the NHL's hottest new commodity, but it turned into a showcase for a familiar old face. While the debut of 18-year-old Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby had received Gretzky-like proportions of publicity, it was New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur who showed he hasn't lost his ability to rip out a team's collective heart. Hockey returned to New Jersey last night, and Brodeur looked as if he had never been on hiatus as he led the Devils to a 5-1 win over the Penguins at Continental Airlines Arena.

Hockey phenom Sidney Crosby won the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League scoring title this season at age 17. Not even Mario Lemieux achieved that distinction at such a young age. Some people have called Crosby the next Lemieux. After being drafted No. 1 in 1984 by Pittsburgh, Lemieux went on to have a storied career as a Penguin, winning two Stanley Cups. How apropos then, that yesterday in a weighted draft lottery - in which Pittsburgh had only three of the 48 Ping-Pong balls - the Penguins won the top pick for next Saturday's draft in Ottawa.

Playing for a hockey-crazed country, Team Canada has one mission in the forthcoming World Cup. Finishing second is "not even a question," Flyers center Claude Giroux said. In other words, nothing less than a gold medal is acceptable to the players and their fans. Giroux is on a Canada team that is so deep that he is expected to play on the fourth line. And Corey Perry, a six-time 30-goal scorer who had 32 tallies for Anaheim last season, may not even crack the lineup. Oh, Canada.

THINK BACK to the go-ahead goal. This is, admittedly, a bit of a chore, because the go-ahead goal occurred midway through the second period, well before Game 3 devolved into a hailstorm of fists, wristbands and power-play goals that left the Flyers and their fans one game away from elimination thanks to a 6-1 loss. But it is there where the story of the series really lies. Not the sliver of daylight between Steve Mason's glove and the post, nor the emphatic fist pump from the all-time great watching his wrister rattle around the back of the net, but the giveaway that ignited the pivotal sequence.

Every spring is supposed to be the spring for Alexander Ovechkin. It never is. For the last nine years, nobody in the NHL has piled up individual achievements and collective letdowns like Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals. He's led the league in goals six times, been named its most valuable player three times, and led the Capitals to six division titles and eight playoff appearances. Not once have they advanced past the tournament's second round. In the race for the Stanley Cup, the Capitals are always the hare, never the tortoise.

NEW YORK - There were a lot of relieved and excited players in the Flyers' locker room after they completed a second-half surge - they climbed past four teams - and clinched a playoff berth Saturday. None seemed more satisfied than Sam Gagner, the winger who will be going to the postseason for the first time in his nine-year career. "It's why you play hockey - to play in meaningful games and play in the playoffs," Gagner said. The Flyers will face Alex Ovechkin and powerful Washington in the opening round.

With his team's playoff hopes hanging in the balance, Flyers rookie coach Dave Hakstol has a difficult decision: Does he start weary goalie Steve Mason in Saturday afternoon's critical game against visiting Pittsburgh or give the nod to the rested Michal Neuvirth and hope he isn't rusty from a 23-day layoff? Decisions, decisions. Mason, who has made 11 straight starts because Neuvirth was recovering from a knee injury, is 0-3 with a 4.03 goals-against average and .897 save percentage against the Penguins this season.

HERE ARE some notable opposing players and their Philadelphia debuts. None of them won the game. * Wayne Gretzky, Nov. 15, 1979: Had two assists and was stopped on a first-period breakaway by Flyers goalie Phil Myre as the Flyers extended their unbeaten streak with a 5-3 win. They eventually stretched it to a record 35 games (25 wins, 10 ties). * Mark Messier, Nov. 15, 1979: Didn't register a point, but did get into a fight in the third period with John Paddock. * Mario Lemieux, Oct. 21, 1984: Registered an assist during a 4-2 Flyers win, but was described as "largely invisible" by Daily News beat writer Jay Greenberg.

PITTSBURGH - The Flyers scored the game's first two goals, both on the power play, and you could almost hear the home fans moaning Thursday night that the Orange and Black were still in the Penguins' collective heads. But a strange thing happened to the Flyers as they aimed for their ninth straight win over their hated archrivals: They found a way to lose. The Flyers' uncanny dominance of the Penguins came to a halt, 4-3, before the 400th straight sellout crowd at the electric Consol Energy Center.

PITTSBURGH - The names were hard to hate, mostly because you'd never heard of them before. It had been 291 days since the Flyers had upped their winning streak against the Penguins to eight, and the indifference that names such as Olli Maatta, Ben Dumoulin and Bryan Rust evoked when the teams finally met Thursday night was not overwhelmed by any plays or shenanigans of their more recognized and despised stars. Yes, Sidney Crosby scored an impossible wide-angle goal that harkened to his Olympic gold-medal winner and Evgeni Malkin did his puck-possession magic at times, despite Scott Laughton and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare doing their best to fill in for injured Sean Couturier - Malkin's regular blanket since these teams last met in a playoff game nearly four years ago. And Phil Kessel, another old Olympic hero, brought Pittsburgh all the way back from a 2-0, first-period hole, knocking in a loose puck during one of an endless string of power plays to grab the lead, scoring an even-strength 2-on-1 in the third period for the deciding goal of a 4-3, defense-to-the-wind Penguins victory.

Center Claude Giroux, who leads the Flyers with 29 points in 38 games, was named to his fourth NHL All-Star team on Wednesday. "It's a great honor," he said after an optional practice in Voorhees. "We have a lot of good players on this team, and to be the one going, there's a lot of pride and I'm pretty excited to go. " Someone asked Giroux if he had seen the all-star jerseys and told him the colors resemble those of the Flyers' archrivals, the Pittsburgh Penguins. "Oh, that's great," Giroux said sourly, sarcasm dripping The all-star tournament will be held in Nashville, Tenn., on Jan. 31. It will consist of three games played in a three-on-three format.
