• Crosby practices with team; return uncertain

    CANONSBURG, Pa. (AP) (AP)ong> - Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby has returned to practice Friday, but his status for next week's playoff opener remains uncertain.

    Crosby hasn't played since breaking his jaw last month. He took part in non-contact drills on Friday, wearing a protective facemask that he'll likely keep on for the duration of the postseason.

    The NHL's second-leading scorer said he feels good and he's not concerned about the layoff. Crosby has undergone several dental procedures over the last four weeks to help repair some of the damage and admits he can tell something's a little off.

    The Penguins have clinched the top seed in the Eastern Conference. Pittsburgh will get back injured defenseman Paul Martin and forward James Neal for the regular-season finale on Saturday against Carolina.
