Penguins center and captain Sidney Crosby skated for 20 minutes before the team practiced at Mellon Arena today, then left the ice. He said his sore groin "feels better," and coach Dan Bylsma said he remains out on a day-to-day basis.

His status for tomorrow night's final preseason game, at Detroit, is unclear.

Crosby played only briefly Thursday in Columbus and did not practice Friday.

In practice today, center Jordan Staal moved up to play with Crosby's regular wingers, Bill Guerin and Chris Kunitz, and took Crosby's place on the top power-play unit. Craig Adams moved into Staal's usual spot between Matt Cooke and Tyler Kennedy.

More details in tomorrow's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
