Guy Behind the Guy: Beard-a-thon Updates and Media Alerts

Just checking in from the morning skate at the Prudential Center with another media addition to our Beard-a-thon effort. NBC-17 sports anchor Penn Holderness has joined the cause, and began letting his facial hair grow in support of the Kids 'N Community Foundation. Unlike the rest of us, who need to snap headshots periodically in order to show folks our beard development, you can watch Penn's changes daily on the WNCN. To see Penn's profile on on make a donation, visit this link. I also snapped an update of my own progress this morning in Newark to add to my own profile).

There's obviously a familiar feeling about this year's playoffs, not only because we were all just in this building a few days ago, but also because it feels so natural to be in New Jersey come playoff time. Though the venue has been upgraded significantly with the opening of "The Rock" last season, the faces and feel are much the same.

A few quick media alerts to add this morning. 99.9 The Fan and WRAL-TV's has a ton of good material available today to get you ready for Game 1, including video of Hurricanes players discussing the challenges in facing the league's all-time winningest netminder, Mike Maniscalco and Adam Harris filing their daily audio update from the road and a blog featuring quotes from Martin Brodeur about the development of Eric Staal. also features John Forslund's blog, as well as the "Canes Insider Blog."

The News & Observer has also amped up its coverage heading into the playoffs. I already saw writer Chip Alexander and photographer Chris Seward roaming the inner workings of the Prudential Center this morning, and there is a good deal of Canes material already on the N&O's Hurricanes home page and the Canes Now blog.

Also, the folks at 850 The Buzz posted a number of Hurricanes-related interviews on their blog , including one-on-ones with Ron Francis, Matt Cullen and former Hurricane Kevyn Adams.
