As we reported last night, Creation Rex -- the Art Institute of Pittsburgh's dinosaur statue -- had a plush octopus in its jaws when the Penguins swept Games 3 and 4 at Mellon. Someone swiped the octopus before Game 5 in Detroit and ... well, we all know how that turned out.
On his blog today (uh-huh), Creation Rex reveals through prose and pictures that he in fact has a new toy cephalopod in his mouth prior to Game 6. So unless what we can only assume is a cadre of armed guards outside of the Institute don't perform their duties, the mojo will be back with the Penguins tonight.
