There was some good news and some bad news at Pittsburgh Penguins practice on Thursday.

Sidney Crosby may have taken another step towards returning, as he skated with his regular linemates, Chris Kunitz and Pascal Dupuis.

Crosby has been out of action for one month with a broken jaw.

James Neal however, was not at practice. The 25-year-old left Pittsburgh's 5-0 win over the New York Islanders on Wednesday with an ankle injury.
