Dustin Penner recently injured himself by eating pancakes and the fans in Vancouver were not about to let him forget it. Some clever fans brought some maple syrup and strategically placed it behind Penner. Well played, well played.

When Vancouver Canucks fans aren't flipping cars for silly reasons, they actually have a great sense of humor. Evidentally in the picture, we may have the most perfect timing in NHL history. Following being injured by "delicious pancakes," as Los Angeles Kings Dustin Penner takes a seat on the bench, he is welcomed by Aunt Jemima's syrup.

So I had Edmonton Sun Reporter Rob Tychkowski ripping me a new one on Twitter Wednesday evening. Welcome to life as the Edmonton Oilers Hockeybuzz Blogger.
Aside from the usual "rumors from the basement" shot he threw, which now is about as funny as a Dustin Penner pancake joke, much of the expressed frustration came as a result of me reposting a Tweet from Josh Rimer...
