AND FINALLY: How to turn a public relations gaffe into a worthwhile fundraiser? When the Kings get back from their annual Grammy road trip, 75 fans and a guest will have the opportunity to have Pancakes with Penner on February 13, 2012 at the Westchester International House Of Pancakes from 8:00-10:00 a.m. According to the official press release, the lucky winners - who will pay anywhere from $10 to $75 to participate - will be provided with an all-you-can-eat breakfast featuring pancakes, bacon, eggs, coffee, and juice, along with assorted prizes. Space is limited only because of the size of the IHOP in question. Penner was the object of much ridicule on Twitter when he announced last month that he’d hurt his back, tucking into a stack of his wife’s “delicious pancakes.” Penner, incidentally, made the comment with tongue firmly planted in cheek. Humour doesn’t always transfer well to the blogosphere and the fact that Penner is stuck at three goals in 38 games doesn’t help his cause much either. The Kings are currently playing him on the second line with Mike Richards and Jarrett Stoll. If that isn’t an organizational cry for scoring help, it’s hard to know what is.
