PITTSBURGH, Pa. - The Pittsburgh Penguins went through their first practice Monday since learning that NHL scoring leader Sidney Crosby underwent surgery for a broken jaw that will keep him out of indefinitely.

Winners of 15 consecutive games, two shy of the NHL record for longest winning streak, the Penguins insist they can keep rolling without the face of their franchise.

Pittsburgh's streak will be on the line Tuesday night against Buffalo.

Crosby was still hospitalized early Monday while his teammates went through a lengthy and spirited practice. It was the first time Jarome Iginla worked with Pittsburgh after he was acquired in a trade with the Calgary Flames early Thursday. He made his Penguins game debut during Saturday's 2-0 win over the New York Islanders.
