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 post-season.
The NHL's second-leading scorer says 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 defenceman Paul Martin and forward James Neal for the regular-season finale on Saturday against Carolina.

I've only been with him for two years, but as a player and as a person it seems like every week he's getting stronger and better, and becoming a better leader and better captain. He wants the team to be so successful that he's making himself better as a player.
