The Pittsburgh Penguins debuted their new and improved roster on Saturday against the New York Islanders, but it took just 90 seconds for Sidney Crosby to leave the game after taking a Brooks Orpik slapshot to the face.  If you watch the replay closely, you can see a couple of Sid’s teeth go flying before he is knocked down to the ice. This is the third time in the last year that Crosby has taken a puck to the face while playing the Islanders. The Penguins reported that he would not return to the game.
