Pronger Out Tonight

Pronger Out Tonight

At least that's the word from the Daily News' Frank Seravalli,
roughly eight hours from puck drop for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Chris
Pronger has been skating, and even participated in some practice drills,
but that right hand still isn't ready to go.

It's hard to get a read on when he could return to action. Pronger
told reporters he is "very" confident about participating in this
series. However, he has yet to resume shooting or stickhandling. That
could certainly change in a matter of days, but it doesn't sound very
optimistic.

The beats are saying Nikolay Zherdev is likely scratched as well.

Bud Light made a special "Dilly, Dilly!" commercial for Philly

Oh, you thought we here in Philadelphia were special? You thought Bud Light liked Eagles fans more than they liked Vikings fans?

Wrong.

Bud Light likes fans who purchase their beer.

But yes, Bud Light did make a special little promo for Eagles fans playing off their "Dilly, Dilly!" campaign that for some strange reason many people seem to like. And get this, it uses "Philly, Philly!"

Because it rhymes.

You can watch that right here and the three other spots they made for the Viking, Patriots, and Jaguars below. The Patriots' one is probably the best.
