Dustin Penner Is Out With Pancake-Related Back Spasms

The L.A. Kings winger missed Saturday's game, and is questionable for tonight. He's still trying to get over a recent onset of back spasms, triggered by an insidiously hearty breakfast.

"Apparently it's one of those mysterious things, where you can throw it out (from) sneezing. I just leaned over to dip into some delicious pancakes that my wife made."

Ah yes, delicious pancakes. Scourge of the NHL. Ended Keith Tkachuk's career far too soon.
