Phil and Tiboudre,

My Rangers are out, but I still have the Tampa Bay Lightning to root for. Watch for Alex Killorn of Tampa. Rising star in the NHL. Not as well known as the other players but the coach must like him, as he leads the forward in time on ice.

I've been watching him. He is a solid player.

Nice! Have a good time!



On a side note, the Blues re-signed Hitchcock. I figured he would be fired. Those one year contracts basically mean you got one more chance. No Cup next year, see you later.

It was awesome. We were up in the nosebleeds but we had a great time. And it was a great game.

I especially liked, early in the first period, how the guy operating the "goal" horn pressed the button even though the puck missed the Chicago net...

Do the American stations play this theme when broadcasting hockey games? It's a big deal in Canada. The CBC used this theme for their Hockey Night in Canada games for 40 years. Here's a little history: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hockey_Theme

It's played in American arenas, but I can't remember if it's always played on the air?

Time for the second period. Go Tampa!

I know it ain't over yet, but I might be rooting for the losing team. Chicago sure look like they want it more than Tampa.

If Chicago wins, Kimmo Timonen gets his name on the Cup. He deserves it, so I'll be good with that.

Not if the Tampa goalie stays in his net, and stops tackling his own players.

Congrats to the fans of the Chicago Blackhawks for your Stanley Cup win! Cheers!

Glad to see Timonen get his name on it.

I guess Boston is in the rebuilding stage? Traded off some good players yesterday for draft picks. From the looks of the internet, I don't think the BB fans are too happy about this.

Lucic I can understand since he'll be a UFA soon and they need the cap space. Dougie Hamilton I don't get because he would've been the cornerstone defenseman especially when Chara calls it a career. Apparently they offered Hamilton to Chiarelli in Edmonton and he didn't want him. Go figure.

Blackhawks’ Patrick Kane Facing Criminal Investigation


By MATT HIGGINSAUG. 7, 2015

BUFFALO — The police in nearby Hamburg, N.Y., confirmed Friday that Patrick Kane, one of the N.H.L.’s most high-profile players, was under criminal investigation.

Kane, who in June helped the Chicago Blackhawks win their third Stanley Cup in six years, was scheduled to have possession of the Cup on Saturday, part of the league’s tradition of letting each member of the championship team have custody of the trophy for one day. If the tradition is upheld for Kane, it will happen under intense scrutiny.

The Buffalo News, citing unnamed sources, reported this week that the investigation stemmed from rape accusations by a woman who said she met Kane at a nightclub last weekend. No charges have been filed, and law enforcement officials have not publicly confirmed that the case involves rape allegations.

The Buffalo News also reported that the police searched Kane’s 6,000-square-foot summer home in Lake View, a suburban hamlet in Hamburg, 20 miles south of where he grew up in south Buffalo.

On Friday morning, Hamburg Police Chief Gregory G. Wickett confirmed that Kane was under investigation. Wickett read a brief statement outside the police station.

“The Town of Hamburg Police Department is investigating an incident that allegedly occurred at the residence of N.H.L. player Patrick Kane last weekend,” the statement read. “At this time we are gathering information and awaiting forensic testing results. We will have no further comment on this investigation at this time.”

In a statement, the N.H.L. said, “We are aware of the police investigation and are following developments.”

Also in a statement, the Blackhawks said: “We are aware of the matter and are in the process of gathering information. It would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.”

Chicago won the Stanley Cup in a six-game series with the Tampa Bay Lightning. On Friday, the Cup was in the custody of Scotty Bowman, a senior adviser to the Blackhawks’ hockey operations, who lives in suburban Buffalo, said Kelly Masse, a spokeswoman for the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, the keeper of the iconic trophy.

Masse said that the Cup would be transferred to Kane early Saturday and that he would have it until midnight. She said the Blackhawks were responsible for scheduling who gets the Cup.

“We don’t know the itinerary,” Masse said. “It is scheduled to go to Patrick, unless something changes today or tomorrow.”

On Monday, Kane was pictured on the Facebook page for SkyBar, a club in downtown Buffalo, with the bar’s owner, Mark Croce, and Joel Feroleto, a Buffalo city councilman.

“Patrick Kane stopped by SkyBar past wknd!” the Facebook post read. “Mark told him to bring the Stanley Cup back with him this upcoming Saturday.” The post continued, “We think we convinced him.”

The post has since been deleted. A man who answered the phone Friday afternoon at SkyBar and identified himself as the manager said, “I can’t confirm or deny that,” when asked if the private party was expected to include the Stanley Cup.

Kane was drafted No. 1 over all by Chicago in 2007. In his eight seasons, the Blackhawks have won the Cup three times. In 2013, he won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player of the postseason. Regarded as one of the most gifted offensive hockey players in the N.H.L., he has dazzled with his skating, puck-handling, and playmaking skills while racking up 557 points in 576 games.

In July 2014, Chicago awarded Kane an eight-year contract worth $84 million.

In August 2009, Kane and a cousin were arrested in Buffalo after being accused of punching a cabdriver in a dispute over a fare. They pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and were given conditional discharges.

But, we'll still print it anyway, just to fuck with his reputation.

I'm not saying it's true, but they are already fucking up his reputation. These articles are everywhere. That particular article was from The New York Times, who were quoting The Buffalo News. So, go figure. That's exactly why I don't watch the news. Probably shouldn't even look at it either.
