Pronger Pinup: Hockey star poster-ized in Chicago

NHL.com @NHL

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Chris Pronger has become poster-ized in the town where Michael Jordan made it an art form with high-flying dunks over helpless defenders.

The Philadelphia Flyers star defenseman is hardly celebrating his portrayal Tuesday in a Chicago Tribune poster, that shows Pronger in a skirt beside a bold headline that declares, "Chrissy Pronger. Looks like Tarzan, skates like Jane."

Pronger has been an antagonizing force in the Stanley Cup finals against the Chicago Blackhawks, but he had the worst game of his career Sunday night when the Flyers lost 7-4.

Pronger, who often logs over 30 minutes of ice time, had a minus-5 rating and was on ice for all but one of Chicago's goals. He sat in the penalty box when the other was scored.
