Penguins/NHL Videos

• Center Sidney Crosby (concussion) missed his 12th straight game Friday. He has returned home to Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia, to continue his rehab while visiting family. "If you've seen Sid around the rink, he's still thinking about hockey — maybe even more now," coach Dan Bylsma said. "This was an opportunity to kind of take a step back from that and get some rest and relaxation for the mind and maybe the body as well, and to try and take his mind off hockey a little bit." There is no timetable for Crosby's return. He has not played since Jan. 5.

• Bylsma said surgery has yet to be scheduled for center Mark Letestu (meniscus), who injured his left knee Tuesday when his skate blade caught a rut in the ice at Madison Square Garden. Letestu is expected to miss four to six weeks.

• Right wing Arron Asham was out of the lineup again with an upper body injury. Defenseman Ben Lovejoy and right wing Eric Godard were healthy scratches.
