Scary Night in the NHL
In one of the scariest scenes in NHL history, Stars forward Rich Peverly collapsed on the team's bench during the first period of last night's game against Columbus. Peverly suffered a "cardiac incident" but, in true hockey fashion, felt better soon after and wanted to return to the game. The game, however, was postponed, and the medical staffs of Columbus and Dallas earned first star honors for their hard work. In other NHL news, Ottawa defenseman Cody Ceci was gushing blood after being nailed in the head by a Shea Weber slap shot, and the Canucks gave up seven third-period goals in a crushing defeat to the Islanders.

And while we're on the subject of pizza, Sbarro filed for bankruptcy protection for the second time in three years on Monday.

Bill Cosby joined Instagram yesterday while attending the South by Southwest Festival. Too bad Instagram wasn't around in 1976, when the comic received a tennis lesson from Playboy bunnies Jan (left) and Martha during a promotional event on 59th Street in NYC.
