Penguins traipse past the Golden Gate bridge, pay a visit to the beach and hold up traffic during a trip through the Golden State in a TV commercial from Minneapolis-based HMS Partners for Mervyn's California.

Wild Adelie penguins have killer appetites - and they rarely miss a target. Neither fish nor krill can escape the Antarctic seabirds, according to scientists who outfitted them with cameras to spy on their feeding habits. Understanding an animal's feeding patterns can be crucial to gauging the population's health and survival. The study, published this week in PNAS, provides a look at the foraging patterns of these penguins and provides future researchers with a way to study other penguins' mysterious eating habits.

Boston's Tim Thomas stopped 27 shots for his second shutout of the season, and Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby was held without a point for the fifth straight game as Bruins defeated the Penguins, 3-0. Matt Hunwick backhanded a rebound under the crossbar, then had to wait 77 seconds for a whistle so NHL officials could consult a video replay and give Boston the goal. Mark Recchi had the 900th assist of his career, Daniel Paille had his first goal with the Bruins, and Patrice Bergeron scored a short-handed empty-netter with 3.5 seconds left as Boston won consecutive games for the first time this season.

The last four Stanley Cup champions advanced to this season's conference finals, a remarkable feat in an era of parity created by the NHL's salary cap. Here's how they match up: (Editor's note: Helene Elliott has picked 11 of 12 series correctly, and predicted the exact number of games six times. The Hall of Fame hockey writer's only misstep was picking the New York Rangers over Boston): 1. PITTSBURGH 36-12 (72 points) Rd. 1: def. N.Y. Islanders, 4-2. Rd. 2: def. Ottawa, 4-1. 4. BOSTON 28-14-6 (62 points)

Playing without young star Sidney Crosby for the first time this season, the Penguins' winning streak came to an end Tuesday when Pittsburgh lost to the Buffalo Sabres, 4-1. The Penguins (28-9-0), who had won 15 consecutive games heading in to Tuesday night's matchup with the Sabres (14-17-6), were two games shy of tying the NHL record of 17 straight wins set by the 1992-93 Penguins. Veteran right wing Jarome Iginla, whom Pittsburgh recently acquired from the Calgary Flames for a pair of college prospects and a first-round draft pick, scored his first goal for the Penguins -- the team's only goal of the night.
