Los Angeles Kings winger Dustin Penner has revealed he was unable to play over the weekend after suffering back spasms brought on by eating pancakes.
Penner, who is no stranger to being knocked for his weight, admitted he was forced to sit out the Kings' 1-0 loss to Columbus Saturday after becoming crippled as he leaned forward to tuck into his breakfast.
Kings defenseman Jack Johnson has never been known as a big-time goal scorer, with his career high for goals in one season sitting at a whopping eight in 2009-10.

CAPITALS 2, KINGS 5
It's weird that the Washington DC feed had the best angle of Jack Johnson "Tebowing"...because aren't they supposed to have seperation of church and state?
What is it with Los Angeles Kings players and big-time goal celebrations after Coach Murray's have been fired? Remember this gem from 2006?
Well, just a mere 5 days...

It may be too early to put much stock in the standings for a tightly packed Western Conference, but Thursday night's matchup between the Los Angeles Kings and Dallas Stars could have major implications down the road.
These Pacific Division rivals are separated by two points as they battle for position heading into this meeting at Staples Center.
