LINK CITY: Who Shot Staal, Austin’s playroom, Winter Classic jersey curse?

Links that are higher than Charlie Sheen.

As you are reading this, Jordan Staal is getting surgery on his hand.  Man. Ray Shero confirmed that Staal broke his hand or whatever, but the explanation leaves the imagination to wonder.
The Penguins website says he was hit by a puck, and that's it. [ Pens ]
Shero wasn't really worked up about anything, just preaching to stay positive.
No word on Malkin or Letang either.
If the Penguins call someone up Tuesday, you know Malkin will be out at least for the Dallas game. Seth from Empty Netters had this tweet: Speaking of Seth, he has a story on Engelland. Mark Madden says Bylsma is to blame for Pens' problems on the PP.

"Ability to block first shot."  This goalie is amazing.
