Another step in Sid's return: Crosby practises on back-to-back days with Pens

SUNRISE, Fla. - Injured centre Sidney Crosby skated in practice with the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday for the second time in as many days.

Crosby, out since Jan. 5 with a concussion, took part in the morning skate on Thursday in Tampa, and was able to go again on Friday here because it was a non-contact session.

The Penguins play the Panthers on Saturday.

"The progression that he's at is still a long ways away," coach Dan Bylsma said. "The timetable hasn't been established at all and he still has several other aspects to go through in terms of what he needs to do."

Crosby, who is still the team's scoring leader with 32 goals and 66 points in 41 games, has missed 37 straight games.

"It's just good to see him out there," Bylsma said, "and I do enjoy the speed at which he practices."
