Crosby has been out since Jan. 6 with a concussion. He took part in the no-contact game-day skate Thursday as Pittsburgh prepared for its matchup later in the day against Tampa Bay.
The Penguins' captain is not ready yet to participate in full practices. A return to game action for the postseason has not been completely ruled out.
Crosby began individual workouts March 14 and has reported no setbacks.
Crosby had 32 goals and 66 points at the time of his injury. Despite playing just 41 games, he is still the team's leading scorer.
