07:52 AM ET 02.02 | Kings Coach Darryl Sutter has opened the door to the chateau de bow-wow. Left wing Dustin Penner, who said this week he was "waiting like a dog in a car, waiting to be let out" while scratched from the lineup, will return on Saturday when the Kings face the Ducks at Anaheim. Penner, who sat out four consecutive games, had no points and a minus-2 defensive rating in the first two games of the season. He practiced on Friday alongside Mike Richards and Jeff Carter, and Kyle Clifford moved back on a line with Colin Fraser and Jordan Nolan. Dwight King and Brad Richardson were the extra forwards. Sutter confirmed after practice at El Segundo that Penner will play. Sutter added that he's looking for "the elements he can bring that we need in our lineup." Penner, no stranger to being benched in order to motivate him to more consistently use his hulking size and proven scoring ability, said he welcomed the chance to get back in the lineup and into Sutter's good graces. "Hopefully I can contribute the way the team needs me to and wants me to," he said. "The same goes for myself."

Or as my first born used to call them 'panty-cakes' and me and the wife would look at each other wondering if we could get him to take a nap.

I was thinking, if they give him a free pass to the "Pancake House," they won't have to worry about keeping him in a dog house.
