Pittsburgh Penguins coach Dan Bylsma is going to have to shuffle his deck in the wake of captain Sidney Crosby being lost to the club for what is expected to be at least a month with a broken jaw.

Crosby had been centring the club’s top line with wingers Pascal Dupuis and Chris Kunitz. When Crosby was hit in the mouth with the puck and had to leave the game Saturday on his first shift against the New York Islanders, Bylsma first tried moving Tyler Kennedy and then Brandon Sutter into Crosby’s spot.

Sutter might be the guy to get a shot at playing between Dupuis and Kunitz.
