News and Notes: Pens Struggle on PP in 3-1 Win

What's happening in Pittsburgh sports at this hour:

JAMES NEAL scored his first goal as a Penguin, and Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 29 of 30 shots as the Pittsburgh Penguins downed the Buffalo Sabres, 3-1, last night in Pittsburgh. The Pens overcame an early 1-0 hole after Rob Niedermayer scored less than three minutes into regulation with two goals in the second period. The Pens were 0-for-7 on the power play, and we can't even blame Mike Yeo this time. 

Still two points behind Philadelphia, Pittsburgh is off until a Saturday afternoon battle against Montreal at the CEC. [ESPN]

MATT COOKE was featured in the latest issue of Sports Illustrated, and it wasn't exactly a flattering portrayal. Hey, what'd you expect? The article was titled, "The Public Enemy," after all. [Kiss Morning Freak Show]

HINES WARD appeared on WCNN in Atlanta to speak about his upcoming experience on Dancing With the Stars, and had this to say about the distraction factor: “I don’t think it will be too distracting. The filming, it goes all the way through like mid-May, June 1st. So it really won’t be that much. It will be like 10 or 12 weeks or episodes. And for me, I get to start off early with my training camp.”

I'd have to agree with Hines on this one. If the Steelers can make the Super Bowl after the offseason they had in 2010, I think a veteran receiver doing some televised dancing would be the least of their concerns. [Sports Radio Interviews]

ANDREW LAMBO hit an opposite-field two-run single to key a three-run ninth inning, leading the Pirates to a 5-2 win over Minnesota on Tuesday. Twins starter Carl Pavano held the Pirates to two hits over four innings, but the Bucs managed to keep it close when Lyle Overbay hit a solo shot in the seventh to tie it at 2-2. Next up: the New York Yankees and Bartolo Colon, at 7:05 p.m. in Tampa on Wednesday night. Kevin Correia gets the ball for the Pirates. []

Hines may not be a distraction, but he's still a tool for doing this.

This site seems to inspire me a lot. Thank you so much for organizing and providing this quality information in an easy to understand way. I think that a healthy era of big data can be maintained only when such high-quality information is continuously produced. And I, too, are working hard to organize and provide such high-quality information. It would be nice to come in once and get information.
