Penguins lead the Atlantic, their owner gets sued

The Pens won last night in commanding fashion, despite no Gary Roberts, and Evgeni Malkin playing time on the fourth line because he pissed off Mike Therrien. That puts them in the lead and hoping the Devils lose tonight.

And their owner, Ron Burkle, is being sued (along with his buddies the Clintons and the NY Daily News) by a gossip reporter who lost his job after Burkle accused him of extortion. Burkle just brokered a deal to keep the Pens in Pittsburgh for the next 30 years, and he's part of the main bidding conglomerate for Chicago Tribune and LA Times. He also looks tough as shit in that picture, doesn't he? Would you fuck with that man?
