Penguins regroup, get ready for Devils

The Pittsburgh Penguins must figure out how to build leads without top scorer Sidney Crosby. The New Jersey Devils must learn to protect their leads, especially at home.

With Crosby sidelined for a minimum of six weeks due core muscle surgery, the Penguins take the ice on Friday night against the host Devils in Newark.

Crosby will miss his second game with an injury sustained in the third period of Saturday's home win over the Chicago Blackhawks. He fell to the ice while getting tangled up with Chicago defenseman Erik Gustafsson, then got hit in the right skate with a puck.
